Conejo.Rocks — 2017

Bummer. There are only 11 things left listed here this season.

Here's a collection of things to do in and around the Conejo Valley that focuses on free live music. It's mostly festivals and shows put on by Jump to the events… the cities, parks and shopping areas that take place around the summer season. There are also a few clubs, some events not focused on music, and some paid events. It is not all inclusive, but pretty close to it for the free events.

Many of the event locations can be found on these maps.

These are the main series that are included. If they have a line through them, they aren't updated for 2017 yet.
