After being delayed due to flooding in Sacramento, the 2023 edition of Sol Blume kicks off this Saturday, August 19. Although a pair of performers won’t be able to make it, there are still plenty worth seeing, from headliners Teyana Taylor, Kehlani, Ella Mai, and Brent Faiyaz, to notable names down the lineup such as Isaiah Rashad, Joey Badass, Jessie Reyez, Pink Sweat$, Chloe, Coco Jones, Muni Long, and more. (Personally, I’m most excited about Bay Area rap fixtures such as LaRussell and P-Lo.) With alternating stages and plenty of 20-minute sets, it helps to be prepared; here are the set times so you can plan out your weekend.
