The inaugural Mill Valley Music Festival is gearing up to bring diverse live music and family entertainment to the city this Saturday at the city’s Friends Field. Grammy-winning folk and blues singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Ben Harper will headline the event with his band, The Innocent Criminals. 

The festival will be a day-long spectacle, featuring two stages for the musical acts, roller-skating, lawn games, an arcade, a live painter and a drag queen “advice desk,” as well as food and drink options and a dedicated “kids’ zone.”

Alongside Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals, the full musical lineup includes Boston-bred funk band Lettuce; Nashville-based singer-songwriter and multimedia artist Liz Cooper; Venezuelan disco, acid jazz and funk band Los Amigos Invisibles; and San Francisco’s very own La Doña, whose music explores radical brown femininity.
