The 9th annual
How Weird Street Faire
Sunday May 4, 2008
San Francisco, Earth
11:11 am - 5:55 pm OUTDOORS
6 pm - 2 am INDOORS
It’s back and at a new location! This year, the faire will encompass Howard Street between 1st Street and New Montgomery, 2nd Street between Mission and Howard, and all four blocks of Minna St. and Natoma St. off of 2nd Street. There will be an urban crop circle at the center intersection of Howard and 2nd Streets.
The main entrances are on Howard Street & 1st Street and on Howard Street & New Montgomery (with bike parking). This is 2 blocks from the Montgomery BART and MUNI stop.
The day is open to all ages, with requested donation of $10 (or $5 in costume). Kids are free.
In 2008, there are seven city blocks filled with art and celebration. There are food and vendors from around the world selling unique and creative wares. There are non-profit organizations to educate and inspire you. There are performance artists and thousands of people in colorful costumes dancing in the streets. And there is the opportunity to meet members of your extended family, and forge lasting connections.
This year will feature 9 stages of music by collaborations of collectives and artists; including CCC, Tantra, An-ten-nae.net, Muti Music, Raindance, Koinonea, Cyberset, Sunset, Om Records, Space Cowboys, Groove Garden, Mystic Beat Lounge, Earthdance, Surya Dub, Non Stop Bhangra, Electric Vardo, Yoga Tai Chi Collective, Symbiosis, Opel, Deep End, Opulent Temple, Lowpro Lounge, Supperclub, and more!
The How Weird Street Faire showcases many diverse genres of electronic music, including Live Electronica, Downtempo, Breaks, Psytrance, House, Techno, Drum & Bass, World Beat, and too many sub-genres to name! The How Weird Street Faire uses music to bring many different kinds of people together and create a common bond. Dancing knows no boundaries or political affiliation. Music, more than any other form of communication, is able to transcend differences between people. It is through music and art that peace is always possible.
