As summer kicks into full gear, crowds will be heading out to the seventh installment of the flamingo-flanked Phono del Sol Music & Food Festival this Saturday, June 17th. Each year, music-lovers of all ages pack into the skater-friendly Potrero del Sol Park for a day of music and food put on by The Bay Bridged and presented by Tiny Telephone and DotheBay.
This year’s fest features a banging line up that includes big time names like Thee Oh Sees, noise-punk darling The Coathangers, and a slew of Bay Area bands, including Sean Hayes and Jay Som. The rest of the star-studded lineup consists of funk rapper DUCKWRTH, Bells Atlas, Never Young, Rayana Jay, Madeline Kenny, and Tino Drima.
Fest-goers will be able to bounce between the Mission and Potrero stages and will have access to a beer and cocktail garden and a fleet of food trucks slinging delicious treats. This year’s food truck roster includes Scotch Bonnet’s Jamaican delicacies, Korean food from Bob Cha, and swoon-worthy ice cream from
Henry Slocombe. Other offerings include Curry Up Now, Kabob Trolley, Gaga’s Rollin Diner,
Sajj, Mozzeria, Linda’s Catering and The Waffle Roost.
With a forecast of 75°F, it appears that Karl the Fog will be lifting to give festival goers a sunny day of beats and booze that’s sure to be a summer highlight. The festival runs from 12PM to 7PM, with Tino Drima kicking off the festivities at 1PM. Tickets are on sale now at Phono del Sol’s website — $29 for general admission and $60 for VIP, plus if you buy five tickets online, you’ll get the sixth one free!
