If you follow us on Twitter or Instagram then you know that the Oakland Music Festival was live. The food, the people and the weather was amazing. But, what was even better was the music. SO much good music. If I had to describe last nights performaces with two words I would say; GOOD ENERGY. A major shout out to all the artist that performed, y’all killed it. Another shout out to OMF for bringing something like this to the bay!
