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. The Bay Bridged provides critical exposure for local artists, especially emerging performers struggling to gain awareness early in their careers.

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.

Through our work, The Bay Bridged has taken a leading role in supporting local musicians and the Bay Area music community.

As we’ve showcased every day on 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.

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 festivals we’ve produced
  • Written over 8,000 articles about 4,000+ bands
  • Produced over 400 hours of podcasts
  • Presented over 200 shows around the Bay Area
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.
