2019 Stern Grove Festival | June 16-August 18

The Stern Grove Festival returns for its 82nd season having presented free concerts in the park every summer since 1938.

If you don’t mind arriving early to spread out your blanket to stake your spot, it’s an excellent way to spend a relaxing Sunday in a beautiful park setting watching free performances from top touring acts and local institutions like the San Francisco Ballet.

Merge Records recording artist M. Ward has released a string of acclaimed solo albums in addition to five LPs with Zooey Deschanel in their duo outfit She & Him. M. Ward’s latest album, More Rain, is evidence of the lauded singer-songwriter and producer’s ability to shine through the soggy gloom of his perennially damp adopted home of Portland, Oregon.

Produced by Merrill Garbus of Tune-Yards, Thao & The Get Down Stay Down’s latest album A Man Alive finds Thao exploring darker and more personal territory than in her earlier songwriting – giddily jumping from crackling staccato funk and reverb-soaked garage-punk to psych-folk and experimental hip-hop.
