Later this month, one of our beloved concert institutions is going to bring live music back to life in the Bay once more. Starting June 20, Stern Grove Festival is bringing acts like Thundercat, Joan Jett, Perfume Genius, and Ledisi to San Francisco.
Of course, this won’t be without some COVID-related caveats. Each show requires reservations, which will be released 8 days prior to the event on a first-come, first-serve basis, on sterngrove.org (psst: If you’re looking to get tickets to Ledisi and the Seshen, that’s today). There will be fencing and other measures to ensure social distancing, and mask policies will be in line with whatever policies the city has in place at the time.
The schedule is as follows. Godspeed on those reservations.
June 20: Ledisi, The Seshen, La Doña, LadyRyan
June 27: Perfume Genius, Madame Gandhi, Honey Mahogany, LadyRyan
July 4: San Francisco Symphony
July 11: Thievery Corporation, Dessa, DJ Shortkut
