There’s always something happening in the city by the bay, and that certainly holds true for concerts in San Francisco. The city’s history is steeped in music, from the seminal 60s of free love rock to the latest gritty underground DJ scene.
Love of music drives huge SF crowds to Golden Gate Park for outdoor live music festivals like Outside Lands, as well as other open air festivals like the Treasure Island Music Festival. That same love drives crowds to world-class concert venues with names even people living in a cave would recognize: The Great American Music Hall, The Warfield, The Independent, the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, and The Fillmore are just a few hotspot concert halls that attract the biggest international acts of the day.
Smaller independent powerhouses such as Bottom of the Hill host San Francisco concerts that make it easy to catch the next up-and-coming act, while a thumping DJ-driven dance scene in SoMa and Downtown offers everything from mainstream remixes to crazy eclectic hip-hop, trance, electronica, and more.
Rickshaw Stop is a great DJ and live music venue for the 18+ crowd, while Slim’s in SoMa and Bimbo’s 365 in North Beach are key stops for many up-and-coming – as well as long-established – performers.
From dingy to diamond-coated, live music venues and concerts keep the beats going strong all over town.
