Spotlight:The 7TH ANNUAL PHONO DEL SOL MUSIC & FOOD FESTIVAL

The Bay Bridged and Tiny Telephone are excited to announce today the full music lineup for Phono del Sol Music & Food Festival, which is scheduled to return to Potrero del Sol Park on Saturday, June 17. Phono del Sol Music & Food Festival is a Bay Area nonprofit festival supporting local music with an annual community-centered one-day event that features some of the best music, food and beverages that the Bay has to offer along with a laid-back and approachable atmosphere perfect for attendees of all ages. 2017 tickets are on sale now at www.phonodelsol.com for an affordable $29, with a portion of ticket proceeds supporting the San Francisco Recreation & Parks Department.
                                   
This year’s Phono del Sol will return to the Mission District’s Potrero del Sol Park, which is located near the intersection of 25th and Utah Street. In the tradition of year’s past, the festival will feature a curated mix of favorite local bands and standout national headlining acts, along with some of San Francisco’s tastiest food trucks, artisan cocktails, craft beer, and family friendly activities. Bay Area residents and Mission District neighbors of all ages are encouraged to kickback and soak in the summer vibes at one of San Francisco’s most beloved public parks.
                                   
The lineup for this year’s neighborhood-friendly nonprofit festival includes a variety of acclaimed national acts and exciting up-and-comers, most of which hail from the greater Bay Area. The 2017 event will be headlined by San Francisco’s own garage-punk rockers Thee Oh Sees, who released their eighth studio album, An Odd Entrances, this past November to rave reviews from fans and critics alike. Female punk rock trio The Coathangers are also set to perform, along with Oakland-based songwriter Jay Som, whose highly-anticipated sophomore album, Everybody Works, was just released this March and was given “Best New Music” honors from Pitchfork; independent folk-rock singer Sean Hayes; and funk-wave hip-hop artist DUCKWRTH, who also released his most recent project, I’M UUGLY, this past September. Additional performers include the Oakland-based afro-soul and R&B collective Bells Atlas; Bay Area-based rock outfit Never Young; R&B singer-songwriter Rayana Jay, who released her debut album, About Last Night, to critical praise last fall; Oakland-based dream-pop singer-songwriter Madeline Kenney; and indie-psych sextet Tino Drima.
