YOUTH BAND CONTEST

2022 YOUTH BAND CONTEST

Since the first Davis Music Fest in 2011, proceeds from our event have been donated to support arts and music education in Davis public schools. This year, we once again want to see what kind of stars our donations are creating, so we are reserving a performance slot for a local youth artist or band, to be determined through friendly competition!

We received many excellent entries in 2022, and and are excited to welcome our winner The One Train to the DMF family! The One Train is the folk-pop project of singer / songwriter / guitarist and Davis High School student Marcos Zaragoza. Marcos’ sound balances lush pop arrangements, spare acoustic playing, and poignant lyrics, and earned him recognition as the Davis Music Fest Tiny Desk Youth Band Competition winner! Congratulations, Marcos!
