Intimate acoustic pop up performances will be scattered throughout the famed grounds as well as craft beer, wine, cider and spirit bars.

 Good Vibez Presents is a full-circle project for founders and industry veterans, Dan and Amy Sheehan, who have been promoting and producing unforgettable, multidimensional events around the world for decades, most notably the largest reggae-rock festival in the country, California Roots Music & Arts Festival in Monterey. Since 2003, Good Vibez has produced hundreds of concerts and festivals all along the West Coast, Hawaii, Arizona, North Carolina and Mexico, bringing people together with mindful, sustainable gatherings rich with music and art. Centered in their desire to use their platforms to elevate creatives in their community, their events are rooted in supporting local nonprofits and small businesses.

When the pandemic hit and the music industry came to a screeching halt, it gave the Sheehans time to dream up new projects and reawaken some that have been dormant for years. The Rebels & Renegades Music Festival is one of those projects that are coming to life in 2022, born from a personal love for outlaw country and producing musically centered experiences.

Land Acknowledgement: We acknowledge that the Rebels & Renegades Festival, held in the Monterey Bay, is on the traditional, ancestral territories and homelands of the Esselen, Rumsen, Costanoan and Ohlone people. To recognize the ancestral lands is an important step in honoring the people who have called the Monterey Bay home from time immemorial, and we acknowledge their continued presence today. Consistent with our values of community and inclusion, we have a responsibility to acknowledge, honor and make visible those whose land we work upon. We are grateful for the opportunity to host community gatherings here. As we acknowledge Monterey Bay as the homeland of these tribes, we ask that you, as visitors, treat this place with the same respect as those who walked before you. We encourage you to learn more about the people of the Monterey Bay in their own words by visiting their websites:
