Musicin San Francisco
The creative spirit and steadfast countercultural streak is on display in San Francisco’s music scene. It's time to immerse yourself in our deep music history and experience the San Francisco sound.
San Francisco is a city where one can hear every music genre you can imagine. From rock and roll, hip hop, and jazz to classical, folk, alternative, electronic, and pop, we’ve got you covered.
Stadium concerts at the Chase Center, Oracle Park, and Bill Graham Auditorium complement street music, smaller venues like The Midway and the amazing (and free!) Stern Grove.
Catch our world-renowned San Francisco Symphony perform or amble into The Great American Music Hall. World class music festivals pepper the calendar, including Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, Outside Lands and the new Portola Music Festival on Pier 80.
The City by the Bay has been memorialized in countless tunes for generations. Legendary songs like “I Left My Heart in San Francisco” by Tony Bennett and “Lights” by Journey are just a few. Listen to great music in a place that has inspired many to create and entertain us all.
