SAN DIEGO, CA- A new music festival is set to take over the heart of downtown San Diego this summer, and it promises to be an unforgettable experience for lovers of alternative and indie-pop music. Meet Bleached Festival, the brainchild of San Diego’s newest curator, Tight Knit, in partnership with FNGRS CRSSD. With the phase two lineup just announced, music enthusiasts can look forward to a weekend of laid-back vibes and incredible live performances on August 5th and 6th at the picturesque Waterfront Park.

Bleached Festival aims to bridge the worlds of alternative, indie-pop, and new-age R&B, creating a unique and refreshing weekend for attendees seeking to kick back and bask in the euphoria of some of today’s most celebrated live acts. The festival’s debut edition boasts an eclectic lineup that promises to be an unforgettable showcase of musical talent.

Among the featured artists taking the stage during the festival is the mesmerizing Caroline Polachek, whose performance style combines classic tracks with songs from her newly released album. Joining her in the phase two lineup are the blissful sounds of LA trio Cannons, the experimental rock act Yves Tumor, and the funk-laced bedroom pop sensibilities of Remi Wolf. The list goes on with the inclusion of the dark and dreamy melodies of Florida singer Ethel Cain, the rising Maui-born vocalist Lily Meola, and the pensive alternative grooves of Subtle Orange.

Phase one of the lineup was equally impressive, featuring multi-talented Japanese icon Joji, known for his hypnotic R&B stylings that earned his latest album, “Smithereens,” critical acclaim in 2022. Joining him were neo-soul forerunner Leon Bridges, DIY pop sensation Omar Apollo, and a host of other talented artists who helped define the sonic spirit of Bleached.
