FEB 24 UPDATE: The festival returns for its 15th anniversary on May 10 at Sharon Meadow in Golden Gate Park. More details are in the works, but visitors can expect plenty of oysters and a full lineup of musicians, including the winner of SF Station’s The Lineup local music contest.
After several years at the Great Meadow at Fort Mason, the festival made its debut in Golden Gate Park last year with Devo, Shiny Tow Guns, Mute Math, Family of the Year and The Lineup winner Branches on the main stage. A smaller second stage featured touring and local DJs and producers.
Stay tuned for more lineup and ticket information for 2014.
