Here’s The Full Lineup Of Free Concerts Coming To The Golden Gate Park Bandshell

We can enjoy free live performances on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

The San Francisco live music scene is truly back in business! In addition to free Sunday concerts from the Golden Gate Park Band, another concert lineup will happen courtesy of Illuminate, SF Rec & Parks, and the SF Parks Alliance. All performances are free and family-friendly, with the impressive Golden Gate Bandshell as the backdrop. The Bandshell, which is 120 years old, added new lighting, a state-of-the-art sound system, and a new stage during the pandemic.

The weekly schedule is as follows: Singers & Songwriters on Wednesdays from 4-7pm; Soul, Jazz, R&B and Funk on Fridays from 4:30-7:30pm; Community & Cultural performances on Saturdays; and World, Reggae and Caribbean performances on Sundays from 4:30-7:30pm. The Golden Gate Park Band will continue their Sunday concert series until October 3.

This awesome lineup was meant to celebrate Golden Gate Park’s 150th anniversary last year, but the pandemic pushed back all of the performances. We’re thrilled that we still get to enjoy them as SF gets vaxxed! All concerts will follow appropriate health guidelines.
