The inaugural Star City Music Festival was a stellar success, and we’re stoked to announce the sequel returns to Brisbane, California—The City of Stars—at the eastern foot of San Bruno Mountain, where the sun hides from foggy San Francisco! On 8/18/18—the Saturday after the last of Brisbane’s Friday night Summer Concert Series—bring the whole clan to this family affair in gorgeous Community Park for a grand finale designed to connect the magical mountainside oasis of Brisbane with its neighbors in Daly City, San Bruno, South SF, the City by the Bay, and beyond.
Gates open at noon, and musical artists performing from 1pm to 8:30pm include hip-hop showstopper Lyrics Born backed by his devastatingly funky full band, bluegrass jammers Poor Man’s Whiskey, Allman Brothers tribute the Allmond Brothers, South Lake Tahoe diva & dancer Ashley Kepler, and more TBA. Our Artist at Large is world-renowned guitar fabulouso Eric McFadden (P-Funk, The Animals). Kicking off the festivities is the Star City Allstars led by Jimmy Leslie (Guitarfish, Guitar Player Magazine, Shana Morrison), and featuring favorite local sons and daughters including Mikel Ross (Corrosion of Conformity), Jerry Kuhel, Stephanie Richardson, and the winner of Brisbane’s Got Talent.
Production and presentation is top-shelf. The diverse lineup of musical artists performs on an amazing transformer-truck stage stacked with a massive sound system. The largest geographic feature on the San Francisco peninsula provides a breathtaking backdrop, and a significant portion of proceeds benefits San Bruno Mountain Watch to help ensure preservation of the precious nature reserve that sits atop the mountain like a crown jewel. The most spectacular views in the region are up there too!
At the Star City Music Festival, kids under ten get in free, and can go kid-crazy on the spacious playground and in the bounce houses. Food trucks serve diverse delectables, and the Lions Club will purvey festival favorites to benefit their cause of community service. Several bars serve adult beverages including craft beers by South SF’s 47 Hills Brewing Company. Brisbane’s business community including Alta Motors will showcase innovative products, and non-profits offer valuable information in the gazebo where folks can learn how to get more involved in all sorts of groovy happenings. See you on 8/18/18 in Brisbane, California, where Everybody is a Star!
