What began as Warren Hellman’s bluegrass fantasy in 2001 as a wonderful gift to the city has now grown into one of the world’s largest and most anticipated festivals for concert goers and musicians alike. Hardly Strictly Bluegrass 8, the FREE festival in Speedway, Marx and Lindley Meadows in Golden Gate Park, will take place on
Friday, October 3 ,
Sat. Oct 4, and
Sunday, October 5.
Starting in 2001 with 2 stages and 9 bands, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass quickly grew by leaps and bounds over the next few years. Soon 3 stages turned into 5, and everyone from Willie Nelson to Dr. Ralph Stanley to Dolly Parton has graced them. As the talent continues to impress, so do the crowds.
Last year's [ 2007]weekend estimates were a staggering 750,000 over the three days.
