Bicycle Music Festival

The world’s largest human-powered music festival | Saturday, Noon to 11:30pm
By - posted 6/23/2012 No Comment

The 6th annual San Francisco Bicycle Music Festival is the world’s largest human-powered mobile music festival that’s 100% powered by bicycles (it’s a 14-bike pedal powered stage) and takes you to two different locations for two different mini bicycle festivals.

After setting up for a five hour music festival in Golden Gate Park, the entire festival (that’s the stage, speakers, the musicians and the fans) packs up and sets off on a bicycle music parade through the city (5p to 6p) and land at Showplace Triangle where they dream it all up again until 11:30pm.

> Please keep in mind the schedule is tentative. As this is very much a DIY event, there are often last minute changes.
