  9. The Sacramento area may have two strikes against it for the upcoming concert festival season, but there's still no reason to sing the summertime blues. Sure, a prime outdoor venue was lost in the closing of the Cal Expo Amphitheatre, and most of the big music festivals such as Lilith Fair won't be coming to town.
  10.  
  11. But there will still be plenty of music cutting through the area's summer breezes, much of it courtesy of the area's most popular radio stations. KWOD, 98 Rock, The Zone, The End and FM 102 are all hosting music festivals, featuring multiact lineups and modest ticket prices.
  12.  
  13. Gary Bongiovanni, editor of Pollstar, a trade magazine that tracks concert grosses and trends, said that radio-sponsored music festivals are becoming increasingly popular with both radio stations and audiences.
  14.  
  15. "It allows (radio stations) to make a more direct identity brand in the marketplace," he said. "The public seems to like them because they can see lots of acts for a low ticket price."
  16.  
  17. However, he noted that with the rise in radio-sponsored concerts there's also been an increase in resentment from artists who feel obligated to participate in them.
  18.  
  19. "Some acts feel coerced into playing them," Bongiovanni said. "The implication is that they get more airplay if they do them and less if they don't."
  20.  
  21. In addition to the radio festivals, the new 3,500-capacity Two Rivers Grove in Discovery Park is hosting an eclectic group of shows this season, ranging from contemporary jazz to classic rock to women singer-songwriters. And there's no forgetting the free concerts held each Friday evening at Cesar Chavez Plaza.
  22.  
  23. Here's the lowdown on this summer's radio-sponsored concerts and other pop music festivals in Northern California:
  24.

  64.  
  65. Outlook: Though usually a heavy-metal fest, strains of hip-hop will be heard at this year's 98 Rock Jamboree in headliner Limp Bizkit and Kid Rock; the latter mixes pulverizing guitars with DJ scratching and rap vocals. A second stage of local acts will also be featured. Bands to play that stage may be nominated at Skip's Music or through the 98 Rock Website (www.krxq98rock.com).
  66.

  74.  
  75. Outlook: While not in the vein of the Sacramento Jazz Jubilee, which emphasizes traditional jazz, the Cal Expo Jazz Festival focuses on more modern, radio-friendly sounds. The lineup is a who's-who of fusion and "smooth jazz" artists.
  76.

  84.  
  85. Outlook: FM 102.5's annual concerts are usually in a "summer jam" format - with a small army of R&B and hip-hop acts performing just a couple of songs apiece. But this year the station is presenting a more mass-appeal festival organized by Nickelodeon. 98 Degrees and B*Witched make their second appearance in Sacramento during the summer festival circuit, while Monica and Tatyana Ali bring some R&B flavor to this show.
