Praise for Music Tastes Good:
“This Fall’s Best SoCal Music Festival Isn’t in Indio — It’s in Long Beach”– LA Weekly
“Music Tastes Good showcases Long Beach with an accessible, approachable debut.” – Los Angeles Times
“Perhaps most impressive, however, was the fact that Halperin and Fischel put on the festival without the help of a major promoter, making it the rare music event today to go a pure independent route.”- Los Angeles Times
“With a solid lineup from top to bottom, it was hard to find a bad time to catch good music.” -LA Weekly
“Music Tastes Good aims to put Long Beach on the festival map.”- Los Angeles Times
“For fans inside the festival, Music Tastes Good offered that rare experience of a fest that was easy to navigate, had a no-hassles attitude and was comfortably well-run.”- Orange County Register
“But while food at the aforementioned fests is most definitely secondary to the music – Long Beach’s Music Tastes Good might be the only one around with food built into its original concept. Hell, it’s even in the name.”- OC Weekly
