Southern California is home to some of the best music festivals in the country. Blues, reggae, gospel, and more — the Long Beach music scene is just as exciting as it is diverse, making this SoCal city a true destination for music fans everywhere. These exciting music festivals feature national, award-winning acts to up-and-coming artists. Block off the streets and turn up the ‘tunes! Here are five of Long Beach’s best music festivals you can’t miss!
Long Beach Jazz Festival: A weekend of smooth beats and soothing saxophones from top jazz headlining artists and local acts awaits you at the Long Beach Jazz Festival. This music festival will be held from August 13 to August 15. Festivities begin at 5PM on Friday night and wrap up at 10:30PM on Sunday night. Tickets can be purchased in advanced or at the door — both VIP and box seats are available.
Annual Blues Festival: Going on its 31st year, Long Beach Blues Festival is the longest-running and most prominent blues event in the United States. This festival is a fundraiser for KKJZ 88.1FM, a publicly-supported radio station. In past years, this music festival has featured top blues performers including the Black Crowes, Kenny Wayne Shepard, and the Allman Brothers. The Blues Festival is held during Labor Day weekend and features musical acts spread out over two stages, shopping, and local food vendors. Tickets can be purchased at the door or in advance. Free admission for children under 12.
Gospel Fest: Gospel Fest is a new addition to Long Beach’s music festival scene — its first even was held in 2009. This feel-good music festival is held during the middle of July and features performances by local choirs and national headlining performers. Along with upbeat performances, Gospel Fest features excellent food, beautiful ocean views, and it’s a great way to spend the afternoon with people from the community.
Ragga Muffins Festival: This family-friendly reggae indoor music festival honoring Bob Marley takes place annually in February at the Long Beach Arena. Tickets can be purchased online or on the day of the concert. Ragga Muffin’s lineup typically includes nationally recognized reggae artists as well as up-and-coming independent acts. Past events featured artists such as Rootz Underground, Stephan Marley, and Queen Ifrica. The Ragga Muffins Festival also features a huge craft sale and excellent food choices, as well as a kid’s play area with face painting, storytelling, and other activities.
Bayou Festival: You don’t have to travel to Louisiana to experience a Madri Gras-style party! The Bayou Festival is held annually in Long Beach, California’s Rainbow Lagoon near the end of June. This exciting music festival features two stages of Cajun, zydeco, jazz, and blues-style musical acts. Also available are hundreds of craft vendors, traditional Cajun and Creole food, a parade, dancing, and parties — all the the style and tradition of Madri Gras! Tickets can be purchased online or at the event. VIP passes are also available.
These Long Beach music festivals are a great way to support independent artists, see live performances from award-winning acts, meet members of the community, and get out of the house and have a great time. Music festivals are a great way to come together with people to celebrate a love for music, community, and great food.

I am a medical Marijuana patient in California traveling to Louisiana.Will Louisiana deny me my medicine?
Will I get in trouble if I am caught with medical marijuana?
Louisiana sees it as Marijuana.
And they do not like it – read overview the law http://norml.org/index.cfm?wtm_view=&Group_ID=4540
A smart patient knows how to travel and medicate with out running into Johnny Law.
If I travel back and forth between 2 states do I need to change my driver license to that state every time?
I would hate to do that. I live in California but I’m temporarily in Louisiana to work with my aunt. I want to know if that would affect me trying to get an apartment in Louisiana or anything like that. But I do travel back and forth & would hate to have to change my license every time.
That is a tough situation. You are supposed to get a Louisiana license within 30 days of moving there. if you do not, and get stopped for any reason, you would have a problem. California is worse…they say you must get a CA license within 10 days of moving there! I don’t see any way around this. then there is the issue of your car insurance. They need to know too.
Edit: Just saw other answer and she has a good thought. If you maintain a home in CA all the time, then you are a CA resident. But, i was concerned that Louisiana would consider you a resident since you spoke of getting an apartment there. Once you do that, they may consider you a resident.

I just want to go camping. WIth tents, and a fire pit to cook, and sleep on the ground. I don’t want RV spots, or wi-fi internet, but that’s all I seem to be able to find. I just want to go camping in the wilderness! Please any help, even just a web site to search on!
Ah, the great outdoors! Louisiana does have lots of ‘wilderness’ areas, but unfortunately most wilderness that’s not developed is either private or state property. According to your profile, I see you live in or near New Orleans. There are a few good places near you, that might suit you.
Fairview Riverside State Park in Madisonville, LA. Just drive north across the Causeway and follow the signs. Fairview has RV spots, but they *also* have primitive campsites, too. The primitives are a bit away from the RV sites. Fairview also has nice bath house facilities. It is located on bank of the Tchefuncte River, with great river access. There are also miles of hiking trails here, including a boardwalk path near the river.
You may also want to check out Fountainbleu State Park, which is a few miles east of Fairview SP. Fountainbleu is officially in Mandeville. It’s a bigger park than Fairview, and it’s situated on Lake Pontchartrain. I believe they also offer primitive campsites. And they have miles of hiking trails as well. Fountainbleu used to have a swimming pool, but i’m not sure if it’s still there, or maintained.
Both places may suit your purposes.
