San Francisco, CA -- The Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival has announced the dates for their 2013 festival. This year's grand event will take place October 4, 5, & 6, 2013. The beautiful crowd shot sent in by Benjamin Wallen was used to create the background of this graphic. Benjamin says " Justin Townes Earle was his best show this year".
It has been just over a year since the founder of this outstanding festival, Warren Hellman, passed away. His gift is the free monstor Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival held in Speedway Meadow at San Francisco's Golden Gate Park. The donated festival was given each year by Warren Hellman. The festival continues to both honor and remember him and to continue the tradition that he loved. As in past years, the multi-day, multi-staged event will feature scores of artists performing for tens of thousands of music fans.
Hardly Strictly Bluegrass is a family-friendly festival. Children and on-leash dogs are welcome but they should be comfortable with large crowds and loud music. Police estimate that more than 600,000 people attended the festival last year over three days, including 350,000 on Sunday, the festival's traditional top attendance day.
More information will be announced as it becomes available and fans of the festival can keep up with all the current news at the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Facebook page. alt=
