Yerba Buena Gardens (Esplanade) | 773 Mission St., San Francisco, CA


Yerba Buena Gardens Festival 2018 | SF

Between May and October in 2018, the Yerba Buena Gardens Festival presents 100 free performances on three outdoor stages in Yerba Buena Gardens.

Admission is free and entertainment includes music, theater, dance, cultural events, educational and children’s programs.

Oakland-based MC, award-winning spoken word poet, activist, and educator Karega Bailey is the guiding spirit behind SoL DeVeloPMeNT, a charismatic crew that delivers trenchant, politically resonant verse amidst an inexorable flow of jazz, soul and hip-hop grooves. The director of special education at Oakland’s Roses in Concrete Community School, Bailey is the subject of the documentary “Surrender: A Story of Rhythm Restoring Hope,” which followed his album “Surrender” and his book “Surrender: A Poetic Ethnography.” In Sol Development, he’s rallied a potent contingent of music educators to create an uplifting soundtrack to the movement for justice, freedom and hope. Sacramento’s four-piece soul combo Mino Yanci provides the grooves for SoL DeVeloPMeNT.
