Ringo Starr among lineup for 2015 Sonoma Music Festival
Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, March 20, for the 2015 Sonoma Music Festival, a classic rock festival held at the Field of Dreams Oct. 2, 3 and 4 just north of the Sonoma Plaza.
B.R. Cohn of B. R. Cohn Charity Events announced the headliners this week, including Chicago at 8 p.m. Oct. 2, with America opening, doors open at 4 p.m.; Ringo Starr and his All-Starr Band at 8 p.m. Oct. 4, with opening band Pablo Cruise, doors open at 4 p.m.; and the Doobie Brothers with Michael McDonald and co-headliner Gregg Allman Oct. 4, doors open at 11 a.m. Other guests during that Sunday afternoon include the Edgar Winter Band and Tommy Castro.
“This is a very impressive three-day line-up,” said Bruce Cohn, who formerly held a fall festival at his winery in Glen Ellen, but moved it closer to Sonoma this year. “Not only do we get to finally present a Beatle, but all of these great acts are a perfect fit for Sonoma and Wine Country.”

Tickets range from $89 to $119 general admission per day; $219 for gold circle (front row seats); VIP for $350 (with food and wine); and onstage experience, from $500 to $1,000.
