A Challenging Year for the San Francisco Bay Area Music Community

Even before recent national events, 2016 has been a challenging year in the San Francisco Bay Area. The high cost of living continues to challenge residents across the Bay Area, including so many in our local music community.

Despite these challenges, however, the San Francisco Bay Area music scene is far from dying. As we've showcased every day on TheBayBridged.com and at events like the acclaimed Phono del Sol Music and Food Festival, the Bay Area scene contains countless talented musicians, many of whom have achieved or will grow to achieve well-deserved national acclaim.

Through our work, The Bay Bridged provides critical exposure for local artists, especially emerging performers struggling to gain awareness early in their careers. Showcasing the best of the San Francisco Bay Area independent music scene has been our nonprofit's mission for the past ten years, but we can only continue to do this with your support.


The Bay Bridged: Over a Decade of Work That Matters

Founded in early 2006, The Bay Bridged is a San Francisco-based 501(c)3 nonprofit recognized nationwide as the leading source for San Francisco Bay Area independent music. Led by a team of over thirty volunteers and staff, we work tirelessly (after our day jobs) to promote Bay Area arts and music and our results speak for themselves.

Over the last 11 years, we've:

  • Showcased the best of San Francisco Bay Area music to over 5 million visitors on our web site
  • Brought over 80,000 attendees to the festivals we've produced
  • Written over 8,000 articles about 4,000+ bands
  • Produced over 400 hours of podcasts
  • Presented and promoted over 200 shows around the Bay Area

Through our work, The Bay Bridged has taken a leading role in supporting local musicians and the Bay Area music community. Our work isn’t driven by clicks, ad sales, or massive ticket sales. It’s driven by a passion for excellent art. That dedication is why we’ve been called the “Best Arts or Music Website” and “Best Music Blog” by the SF Weekly and the SF Bay Guardian repeatedly. And this is why our award-winning podcast series is syndicated through KQED.
