Pedal Power Brings Bicycle Music Festival to Golden Gate Park. San Jose Bike Party got a taste world's largest bike powered music festival last month in Japantown. This great festival will be completely powered by bicycle.
There will be three parts to the event; the Day Venue, Live on Bike, and the Night Venue. There are great opportunities to get that dream roadie job or other volunteer gigs if you'd like.
From the BMF Website:
The mission of the Bicycle Music Festival is to promote sustainable culture in general and bicycle culture in particular, by physically engaging and immersing our community in the magic of bike culture, and cultivating and nurturing a network of local sustainable musicians, through our staging of free, community participatory, bicycle-based music events.
The Bicycle Music Festival is the largest 100% bicycle-powered music festival in the world. The free, all-day (and late into the night) event takes place annually in San Francisco, California on the Saturday closest to the summer solstice.
The Bicycle Music Festival features: a 2000 watt pedal-powered PA system, as many as 15 bands, multiple festival stops, outrageous Critical Mass-style bicycle party caravans between festival stops, and zero use of cars or trucks.
With its completely bike-haulable stage, the event is packed up and deployed numerous times: staged sequentially at different public parks and also on a moving “Live On Bike” stage which rolls down city streets.
