Get ready to party with 15,000 summer lovin’ people at this delicious summer feast and street party over three blocks, typically with two stages of alt-indie bands and DJs curated by Noisepop, and food and drinks from some of the neighborhood’s top restaurants, businesses, and artisans and a cooking demo stage.

The 2017 headliner is electropop super stars Neon Indian plus experimental electro outfit Kilo Kish, Indiana four-piece Hoops, Sugar Candy Mountain (who sound like if Brian Wilson dropped acid on a beach in Brazil), Oakland rockers The Tambo Rays, SF dream-poppers High Sunn and Oakland duo Big Thursday.
