Hardly Strictly Bluegrass has unveiled the initial lineup for its long-awaited live return to Golden Gate Park on September 30-October 2. The three-day, multi-stage free music festival will come “Back To The Park” with an eclectic bill of performers spanning an array of genres, including Marcus Mumford, Allison Russell, Las Cafeteras, Lucius, Galactic, AJ Lee & Blue Summit, Joy Oladokun, Charley Crockett, Buddy Miller, and Dashawn Hickman.
The lineup was teased with an exclusive medley streaming now on the official Hardly Strictly Bluegrass website. Additional performers will be announced soon.
“The recently released first medley should get fans really excited about what’s in store for them this year – a little bit of everything,” says Hardly Strictly Bluegrass executive producer Sheri Sternberg. “We are thrilled to have old friends return like Galactic and Buddy Miller as well as some first-timers: Marcus Mumford, Joy Oladokun, Lucius, Charley Crockett, and more. Others, like Allison Russell and Las Cafeteras, have joined us virtually the past two years & we’re delighted to have them join us in Golden Gate Park. The entire staff is looking forward to returning home to the best backdrop any festival could ask for.”
