Conceived as a gift to the city of San Francisco by late music fan and billionaire financier Warren Hellman, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass has been bringing top-tier musical acts to Golden Gate Park every October since 2001. The admission-free festival draws nearly a million people to the city over its three-day run, and with a lineup this impressive, it’s no wonder. Scheduled performers include Tanya Tucker, Fantastic Negrito, Steve Earle, Calexico, Iron & Wine, Margo Price, Hot Tuna, Emmylou Harris and the golden god himself, Robert Plant.
