San Francisco will once again be the site of the funkiest place in October when the third annual Funk Festival takes over from October 8-25. Celebrating all things funk, the event will feature music, art and film.
This year’s lineup boasts DJ Greyboy, The Headhunters, Grandmaster Flash, and Robert Walter’s 20th Congress. Various venues in and around San Francisco – including Bimbo’s 365 Club, the Elbo Room and the Great American Music Hall – host the concerts.
The San Francisco Funk Fest first descended on the bay city in 2001. Even though the event was held a couple months after September 11, it managed to attract upward of 3,000 people, laying the ground for the successive festivals.
