SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -- Santa Barbara Airport will be featured in a summer concert festival with special guest Kenny Loggins performing.

The concert festival is called JetStream Summer Fest.

Santa Barbara Airport will be featured during this virtual concert on Aug. 19.

The event will take place on Facebook Live.

The stream will feature performances by local musicians representing each participating city.

Santa Barbara Airport will be presenting local Grammy-award-winning musician Kenny Loggins.

The concert is celebrating "Live Music at a Safe Distance".

The Festival happened earlier this year in Austin, Texas at the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport and was said to be a big hit.

12 North American airports will join Austin-Bergstrom International Airport for the free, multi-hour livestreamed event.

“Santa Barbara Airport is thrilled to join many of the nation’s best airports and bring a bit of musical joy to our summer,” said Airport Director, Henry Thompson.  “And we’re grateful that Kenny Loggins wanted to represent his hometown airport.”

Chief Executive Officer of Austin-Bergstrom International Airport Jacqueline Yaft hopes this music festival will help people celebrate the summer time during shelter-at-home orders during the pandemic.

The event kicks off at 3 p.m. Pacific Standard Time.
