With the debut of the Blurry Vision Fest in Oakland earlier this month and Bottlerock Napa Valley and Carnaval San Francisco around the corner, music festival season is officially underway in the Bay Area.
This mixtape features music from local artists performing at festivals around the region in the coming months. San Francisco's Outside Lands is certainly the biggest summer music festival in the area; its 2018 lineup is particularly notable for its overdue inclusion of female headliners (Janet Jackson!) and a ton of local performers. But the Bay Area has many other festivals to offer, and this mix reflects the variety of concert-going experiences available in Northern California.
Between now and the end of the summer, one can check out beloved legacy events Stern Grove Festival and Carnaval, exciting new fests like Feels 6 and The Multivrs Is Illuminated and the road trip-worthy Huichica Music Festival and Hickey Fest.
Listen to the mixtape to learn more about all eleven bands and their corresponding festivals.
