Rebels & Renegades will once again take place at the Monterey County Fair & Event Center in Monterey, CA, this year bringing music to festival goers over three days; October 6-8, 2023.
With Rebels & Renegades, promoters Dan and Amy Sheehan enjoyed the challenge of creating a fresh festival experience grown from their family's love of exactly what they are programming: left-of-center country, Americana, folk, outlaw, Texas country, bluegrass, and roots music. Reverent when it matters and irreverent where a change would do good, Rebels & Renegades is their nod to the outlaw in everyone. The inaugural year of Rebels & Renegades took place in October of 2022 and was celebrated by Rolling Stone for its "no genres allowed" programming ethos. Bringing the hippies and the cowboys together with some killer music, interactive art stations, a local makers marketplace and delicious food peddlers, Rebels & Renegades salutes the outlaw in all of us.   

People travel from around the world to experience everything Monterey has to offer — wind along the breathtaking Big Sur coastline of the iconic Highway 1, book an ocean view hotel on the beach, explore the shops and attractions of historic Cannery Row including the famed Monterey Bay Aquarium, sip handcrafted wines at tucked-away tasting rooms, play 18 holes at legendary golf courses, book a cruise in the bay to spot whales and dolphins, or pack a picnic and watch the sunset on one of our awe-inspiring beaches. Monterey is a haven for music fans to pair their love of music with a beautiful town and October is when the weather is at its sweetest.
