HARDLY STRICTLY BLUEGRASS
HELLMAN’S HOLLOW | GOLDEN GATE PARK
It blows my mind that this three day music festival is completely free and open to the public! Def check out the schedule and go with a game plan. I also suggest walking/riding a bike if you can as some of the park is closed to cars and busses are just about impossible to get on once it’s over. Oh, also, GO SEE MAVIS STAPLES!
