TIME: 12:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Performances begin at Noon at Pioneer East Meadow on JFK Dr. in Golden Gate Park. At 5:00 pm participants and audience load up on bikes for the LiveOnBike performance and bike parade en route to 22nd and Bartlett Streets where performances continue until 9pm.
Event Type: Concert/Show
Join us for the world’s largest bicycle music festival in Golden Gate Park and in the Mission District, as well as live on bicycles en route between the two destinations.  The lineup features Grammy-winning bluegrass artists, Laurie Lewis & the Right Hands; Jason Brock of The X-Factor; Quinn DeVeaux & the Blue Beat Review; and Bill McKibben of 350.org.

The SF Bicycle Music Festival is a free, non-profit, all-day, all-ages, outdoor concert featuring musical acts from around the Bay Area. The Festival champions bicycle mobility, full audience participation, and zero use of fossil fuels. Twenty-thousand watt sound systems are powered entirely by volunteer pedalers on stationary bikes, and all participants ride together in a bike parade between the two locations.  En route, participants enjoy live performances from a bike-pulled mobile stage, amplified by full-sized concert speakers strapped to multiple bikes throughout the crowd and connected wirelessly.

The Festival begins 12 noon to 5pm at Pioneer East Meadow in Golden Gate Park. The LiveOnBike music bike parade rolls out from the park at 5pm and travels to 22nd and Bartlett Streets in the Mission District where performances continue until 9pm. Bike-blended smoothies and pedal-churned ice cream will be served in the park and the Mission Community Market will serve fresh local fare for the Bartlett Street stage.
