Description

The 7th annual San Francisco Bicycle Music Festival on June 22, 2013 is the world’s largest human-powered mobile music festival that’s 100% powered by bicycles (it’s a 14-bike pedal powered stage) and takes you to two different locations for two different mini bicycle festivals.

After setting up for a five hour music festival in Golden Gate Park, the entire festival (that’s the stage, speakers, the musicians and the fans) packs up and sets off on a bicycle music parade through the city (5p to 6p) and land in the Mission where they dream it all up again for a three-hour night-time concert
