Hardly Strictly Bluegrass
WHEN: October 5th-7th
WHERE: San Francisco
TOP ACTS: TBA
This free festival has had plenty of memorable once-in-a-lifetime moments. Legends like the late Doc Watson, Earle Scruggs, Merle Haggard and Kris Kristofferson have all brought their best picking to the Bay in recent years – along with younger acts like Bright Eyes.
PRO TIP: Doors open at 10 a.m., and since the festival is free, showing up early is key.
