2022 Lineup / SJZ Break Room Stage

Conceived as a popup, state-of-the-art video production studio during the height of the Coronavirus pandemic, the SJZ Break Room has become one of San Jose’s best-loved small venues, capping at around 100 seats. The intimate seating and club vibe provide a great counterpart to the Latin Tropical Stage, just steps away. You’ll need an All Stages or higher wristband and Priority Access and above ticket holders have first-in access.
