Dreamforce is for developers, salespeople, admins, marketers, and many more, but who would have guessed it was also for music fans? This year’s Dreamforce is going to rock, with four days of music.
After the huge success of last year’s first ever Dreamforce Music Festival, we are going full speed ahead for year two. The Dreamforce Plaza on Howard Street will have outstanding live music on two separate stages. We are so excited to announce the addition of nine amazing artists and bands to the Dreamforce 2013 lineup.

Aussie born DJ Anna Lunoe has been leaving a trail of exhausted and ecstatic crowds wherever she goes. Clubs throughout Australia & the USA have become her weekend playground. She’s a festival staple and she will be opening up the Dreamforce Festival bright and early on Monday morning!
11:30am-1:30pm: St. Lucia
One-man band, St. Lucia, takes his name from the small Caribbean island and the moniker fits in that the only kind of place you can imagine this music coming from is sunny and remote. His songs are pop cuts, plain and simple. What St. Lucia brings to the table is immediacy tempered with texture, depth and variety. That artistry only adds to the appeal of these catchy songs.
Originally from Johannesberg, St. Lucia creates atmospheric quality electronic pop is powerful, with the musician's global travels and history of secret hideaways effortlessly passed onto the audience through his dreamy, shimmering synths.
2pm-3:30pm: Strong Like Bull
Strong Like Bull returns for the second year to the Dreamforce Festival and brings your favorite rock, pop and hipster-tunes. Rated San Francisco’s #2 cover band, their eclectic repertoire includes Journey, The Killers, Kings of Leon, MGMT, Foo Fighters, The Strokes, Franz Ferdinand, Guns N’ Roses, Silversun Pickups, Velvet Revolver, Rage Against the Machine, Radiohead, Bon Jovi and of course, Neil Diamond.
The Amazing Embarrassonic Human Karaoke Machine is an interactive rockstar fantasy experience that allows you to front a real, live, 3 piece rock band. They’ve got guitars, bass, drums, keyboards, a stage and a repertoire of over 500 songs, but without you they are nothing but a crappy jazz/fusion instrumental headache. Pick a song you’re familiar with and sign up to sing.
