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.
