This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love, and nowhere is that felt more keenly than the epicenter of the hippie movement, San Francisco. This Sunday, May 7th, for the 18th year in a row, an army of peace-loving weirdos will descend on Howard and 2nd for the How Weird Street Faire, a Celebration for Peace first organized by the Consortium of Collective Consciousness.
But they're not alone, there is a huge groundswell of support from some of our biggest allies in the electronic music scene like Enchanted Forest, Northern Nights, Pulse SF, Muti Music, Symbiosis, Skyhigh Odditorium, and so many more. From noon to 8pm there will be 11 stages pumping out everything from downtempo to psytrance with many tributes to the hippie sounds of 1967.
This year a number of stages and sights have been added, including high-flying acrobatics, on top of already brilliantly festooned revelers. Costumes and flowers are encouraged, and connecting the bridge between the Summer of Love and the Summer of Weird is encouraged. Please support this free event by purchasing a Magic Button, which gives partiers access to bonuses like food, drinks, and extra experiences in certain parts of the party. It's only $20 and helps to keep this annual event rolling.
Performers include Andreilien, MiM0SA, Spektrum, IrieEyes, Bogl, Smasheltooth, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, and a number of local and regional legends who have been staples of the Bay Area electronic dance music scene. Click here for a full stage schedule.
