The Buellton Fall Fest is almost here!

Artikal Sound System Artikal Sound System will headline Sunday, November 14th from 8 – 10 p.m. They are a national touring reggae band based out of South Florida. After nearly a decade of playing together the sound is tight and powerful, creating the perfect foundation for their jazz-influenced singer to dance around on lyrically and literally. They bring an energetic presence to the stage and will be a perfect band to end the 2021 Buellton Fall Festival.
