Dear BMF Family,
The 2010 San Francisco Bicycle Music Festival has been RESCHEDULED for Saturday, JULY 31.
Going legit has been harder than we thought! With 3 weeks to go, we still hadn’t gotten all the police approvals we needed for our LiveOnBike rides and street closure. We want our Festival to be fun for our crew, bands, and fans. The unknowns were adding a lot of stress to an event that we do for pleasure. We’ve decided to postpone it, giving us long enough to ice the permits, focus on the creative aspects, and bring the fun back. We hope you understand!
Saturday, June 19 we are going to have a crew picnic at 3PM in Dolores Park — come join us pot luck style if you want to get involved as a volunteer!
Lots of good progress:
– We have raised $2500 so far this year, thanks to generous support from Rainbow Grocery, Rock The Bike, and the greater Bicycle Music community, enough to cover our permits and several other key costs.
– We’ve processed a check request for the Golden Gate Park venue.
– Great bands are on board: Manicato, Spaceheater, The Get Back, La Collectiva, and more.
Please enjoy the additional time we have to make this year’s BMF great and groundbreaking, and pass along any ideas you have for building our community and strengthening our foundation.
Paul, Gabe, and Jeff
