Unfortunately, Liz Phair will no longer be performing at Stern Grove on Sunday, June 26.

Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter Ani DiFranco will be now headlining this Sunday’s Stern Grove Festival concert on June 26. She will be joined on-stage by previously announced Bay Area-based acts Peaches Christ and DJ LadyRyan.

Widely considered a feminist icon, DiFranco is considered a leader of the DIY movement, being one of the first female artists to create her own record label in 1990. Liz Phair and her band are, unfortunately, unable to join due to a COVID-related cancellation.

To celebrate the lineup addition, more free ticket reservations have just become available for fans via sterngrove.org. Previous reservations for the original Liz Phair performance will also be honored.

Disclaimer: Please double check event information with the event organizer as events can be canceled, details can change after they are added to our calendar, and errors do occur.
