Event Details

The San Francisco Mixtape Society is a quarterly event dedicated to the delicate art of the mixtape. Everyone and every medium is welcomed (CDs, cassettes, USB, etc…). The mixes are traded over the course of the evening through a spirited raffle.  Think of it like a secret santa event, but with music mixes

The best mixtapes, as selected by the audience and by judges according to artwork, originality and theme, win prizes. The Mixtape Society is free to attend and open to the public.

During the event, DJ Diego Baptista will spin an eclectic set of music against the backdrop of a video art installation featuring works from Bay Area artists. The video art installation will be curated by designer Emie Lee (By Emie) and photographer Jen Giese (Photojojo).
