The “Made on the Coast” (MOTC) Artists' Group, a subcommittee of the Half Moon Bay Beautification Committee, presents its lineup of musicians for the "Made on the Coast Music Stage", part of Locals' Block at the Half Moon Bay Art & Pumpkin Festival.

The MOTC Music Stage will feature performances on October 19 and 20 and is located in the Cunha's Country Store parking lot (at Kelly and Main).

The MOTC Music Stage is supported this year by presenting sponsor, Half Moon Bay Brewing Company.

True to Local Artist’s Block tradition, the MOTC Stage lineup on Sunday all hail from the Coastside – from Pacifica to Pescadero, and west of Skyline.

Our awesome band booking expert, Paula Helene, representing Half Moon Bay Brewing Company, carefully selected the bands for both days.

Visitors will hear a wide range of styles of music from R&B, Blues, and Rockin’ Americana to Reggae.

Top the stellar music off with a tasty Pumpkin Harvest Ale, refreshing Kolsch or hoppy Full Swing IPA from the Half Moon Bay Brewing Company beer booth in the MOTC Stage area and you’ve got a flat-out winner.
