Festival Network is proud to announce that the legendary Phil Lesh & Friends will headline Sunday, August 31, at the Slow Food Rocks music festival, which will be held during Slow Food Nation, the largest celebration of American food in history, taking place in San Francisco over Labor Day Weekend. In a rare hometown appearance Phil Lesh and Friends will play on an outdoor stage at The Great Meadow at Fort Mason overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge, the second day of a two day music festival. Other artists include Grammy-winning Gnarls Barkley, who will headline the event on Saturday, August 30 with Ozomatli, New Pornographers, and Medeski Martin & Wood. Joining Phil Lesh and Friends on Sunday, August 31, are G. Love & Special Sauce and the John Butler Trio.
Throughout the years Phil Lesh & Friends have included several of the great names in rock music both past and present, and it takes a special event like Slow Food Rocks to bring them to this green, gorgeous spot by the Bay. Slow Food Nation will bring together tens of thousands to experience an extraordinary range of activities highlighting the connection between plate and planet. All food and beverage vendors for the music festival will be sourced through Slow Food Nation, representing the best in good, clean and fair prepared foods, meats, produce, micro-brews and wine. To highlight issues concerning urban and global water use, Slow Food Nation is partnering with Food & Water Watch and the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission to develop accessible and visible water stations. All water will be free of charge. As Slow Food Nation strives to be a plastic-free event, we encourage you to bring your own reusable water bottle.
