2 days remaining

If you haven’t yet made a tax-deductible donation to support The Bay Bridged, there are only two days left before our fundraising drive concludes at the end of the year.

The Bay Bridged is led by a group of 30-plus volunteers who work tirelessly (after our day jobs) to promote Bay Area arts and music through our award-winning music blog and podcast, as well as a series of acclaimed music festival events including Phono del Sol, The Bay Brewed, and formerly, Rock Make Music and Arts Street Festival. Over the last 10 years, our work has served to directly promote and support over 4,000 bands and musicians.

Over the last 10 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 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

We’ve managed to do all of this using our network of hard-working Bay Area music fans. And instead of resting on these accomplishments, we want to continue to do more. Help us continue to build The Bay Bridged into the local music champion that San Francisco needs and deserves.
