Want to hear the newest local artists from San Francisco? Be sure to check out the Switchboard Music Festival. Featuring musicians primarily based in the San Francisco Bay Area, the festival consists of an eight-hour marathon concert with big name artists as well as younger, less established groups with great potential. Much of the music is also focused on blurring the lines between genres. This festival is great for those who want to hear new and interesting music from up and coming local artists; its unpredictability makes the festival fresh. Who knows, maybe you’ll find your new favorite artist here.
