Gardens & Villa Tour with The Shins and Fanfarlo

Perform at Coachella, Sasquatch, SXSW Festivals, and More

Following a quick run of headlining dates in their native state of California, Gardens & Villa will embark on a full North American tour that will include dates with both The Shins and Fanfarlo as well as stops at some of some of the most prestigious music festivals around.


They are scheduled to perform at both weekends of the Coachella Music Festival, as well as dates at South by Southwest, 35 Denton Fest, Snowball Festival, and just announced today, the Sasquatch Music Festival in Washington state.

Gardens & Villa have spent the last month in residence in Portland, OR working on new material. So expect to hear some new tunes at these upcoming live dates. For more on their time in Portland, read the Portland Mercury’s recent interview with them. You can also stream a new live session for HeyReverb’s Mile Marker Series right HERE.
