Inaugural Bleached Festival Presents Diverse 2023 Lineup with Joji, Leon Bridges & Omar Apollo at The Helm

The inaugural Bleached Festival will take over San Diego’s iconic Waterfront Park this summer with an eclectic lineup headed by Japanese icon and international R&B star Joji, Neo-soul forerunner Leon Bridges, and auteur Omar Apollo. Produced by indie-pop curator Tight Knit in partnership with FNGRS CRSSD, the new festival will take place August 5 and 6 where alternative, indie-pop, and new-age R&B intersect.

Additional highlights include versatile beatsmith Channel Tres, Mad Decent’s breakout crossover star Aluna, and pop princess Maude Latour.
