The lineup for this year's Stern Grove Festival includes the 90s throwback hip-hop stylings of Digable Planets, the international eclecticism of Pink Martini, and, as always, the San Francisco Ballet and SF Symphony.
Also performing at The Big Picnic this year will be The Isley Brothers, on August 18, and 80s new-age band the Psychedelic Furs on August 4, who'll be joined by another 90s throwback, James. (Remember "Laid"?!) And I shouldn't neglect to mention Toots & The Maytals on July 21, and Galactic on June 30.
As always, Stern Grove concerts happen every Sunday from mid-June to mid-August, starting at 2 p.m., and they're free. (If you want to avoid the crush of the crowd, which is not inconsiderable considering the free part, you can drop $500 as a donation and get a reserved picnic table for 5, which comes with free beer and wine.)
Check out the full schedule below, and make picnic table reservations here, if you wish.
