I don't know if anyone mentioned this already but San Francisco hardly strictly bluegrass festival is free and AMAZING. Been there 2 years in a row and absolutely loved it. The energy was always great for me and the music is awesome. They usually have like 5 stages so if you don't like a band just move on to the next. I have also seen a bunch of buskers and vendors so it is definitely worth it even if SF is kind of iffy these days.

Hardly Strictly Bluegrass is coming up in San Francisco the first weekend of October. For those not in the know - this is a free 3 day festival (no legal camping) held in Golden Gate Park every year.
The Festival is sponsored by the descendants of Levi Strauss - the company started in SF and still has operations there - now the family throws this free fest every year as a way to give back to the community. They have turned down sponsorship from some major backers - thus keeping it free of all the Budweiser and Apple banners.
We are talking six stages - 10 to 18 hours a day for 3 days. Dozens and Dozens of food vendors (and drink) and all in all just a really great vibe - adults being adults without too much antics that are harmful to the youth. Definitely a family vibe with Mom and Dad still able to have some wine, toke a jay and maybe even indulge in some psychedelic chocolates.
Last year - our biggest dilemma was having to decide between Doc Watson, Emmy Lou Harris, and Peter Rowan, all of whom were playing at the same time on different stages. Hundreds of acts including almost every living legend of Bluegrass, most the real up and comers, and a smattering of fringeGrass bands. And all free admission.
Also - the Haight area is a real party in itself for this weekend. We're talking 250,000 plus visitors for this event every year.
Highly recommended for the Bluegrass Fan, Music Fan or Festy Crowd Fan - :)

Close. Warren's family has Wells Fargo, not Levi Strauss.
However, he was a self made millionaire (likely billionare, what with the amount he gave away)

RIP, Warren, well dance a bit for you.

And yes, it is a must see.

That's the problem with working on festivals, there are conflicts. Hardly Strictly is the same weekend as Hoes Down. I'm going to be running sound at a kid's stage that weekend.

Northtek at Lac du Mont in Quebec, Canada. I love this festival! People are allowed to set up their own stages for free as well as attend for free. This means no big headliners, but the music is still great and it is on a gorgeous beach.
