The whole thing starts at 9:30 at Marx Meadow in GG Park, then rolls to Delores Park at 2:30, then to Pier 7 around sunset. Check out the festival website for the route map, band line-up, photos, and tech details on how the whole thing works, from generators to photos of the custom bikes designed to carry things, like a piano?
The Bicycle Music Festival features: a 2000 watt pedal-powered PA system, as many as 15 bands, up to 7 festival stops, outrageous Critical Mass-style bicycle party caravans between festival stops, and zero use of cars or trucks.
With its completely bike-haulable stage, the event is packed up and deployed numerous times: staged sequentially at different public parks and also on a moving “Live On Bike” stage which rolls down city streets.
But really, get off the computer and go check it out in person. Whatever you do, have a great weekend!
