The Bay Area’s best BYOB festival returns for its 17th year with another eclectic lineup that pairs celebrated Americana songwriters with a handful of acts that put the “Hardly” in Hardly Strictly Bluegrass. More than 90 performers and upwards of 700,000 attendees will cycle through Golden Gate Park for the three-day festival, which runs through Sunday. There will be quick-pickin’ and twangy harmonies aplenty. Roots stalwarts Steve Earle, T Bone Burnett and Justin Townes Earle are on this year’s bill, along with more contemporary sounds from Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys, Courtney Barnett with Kurt Vile, and Cheap Trick—because, why not?
