Already announced acts in the 19th free musical extravaganza on Oct. 4-6 in Golden Gate Park include: acoustic duo The Milk Carton Kids; Calexico and Iron & Wine; Ukraine folk-music group Dakhabrakha; Texas troubadour Hayes Carll; Bay Area songwriter Jackie Greene; cowpunk Meat Puppets, soul singer Bettye LaVette, country music’s Margo Price, outspoken country and folk rocker Steve Earle, and British-Irish folk-rockers The Waterboys.

The late Warren Hellman created the festival in 2001 as a gift to San Francisco and the world to celebrate the variety of American roots music.

Festival organizers note that this year’s programming won’t overlap with San Francisco Fleet Week, allowing concertgoers the ability to enjoy acoustic sets “without noisy jets overhead.”

The rest of the lineup will be announced in upcoming weeks.
