Yup, we've got another summer music festival to announce here on The Tripwire. This one combines two of our favorite things in the world: food and music. San Francisco will be home to one more music fest, Slow Food Rocks, which is taking place during the what organizers are calling largest celebration of American food in history, Slow Food Nation.
The two-day event will take place on August 30 & 31 at The Great Meadow at Fort Mason. On Saturday, August 30, Gnarls Barkley will headline, performing along with Ozomatli, The New Pornographers and Medeski Martin & Wood. For Sunday, August 31, G. Love & Special Sauce and the John Butler Trio will take the stage along with a TBA headliner.
So what about the food portion of this event? Slow Food Nation's goal is to bring tens of thousands of people together to emphasize the connection between "plate and planet." All of the vendors will be selected by Slow Food Nation to represent the best in good, clean, well-prepared foods, micro-brews and wine. Now THAT sounds like our kind of event!
Tickets for the two-day food and music extravaganza will go on sale next Tuesday, June 10 at 9am EDT via slowfoodrocks.com, or by calling 877-655-4TIX.
