SF Show of the Week // GO4FREE to Passion Pit, KONGOS & Sir Sly at Oysterfest 7/1 (SAT)

Oysterfest 2017 lineupWritten by Jacqueline Moore //

San Francisco Oysterfest //
Golden Gate Park – San Francisco
July 1st, 2017 //

It’s Oysterfest once again in Golden Gate Park this weekend, and the 18th annual edition features electronic indie-pop at its finest with Passion Pit, KONGOS and Sir Sly on the bill. Enjoy the 50th anniversary of the “Summer of Love” with oysters, Guinness live music and other tasty food options. It looks like it might be a little breezy at the park on Saturday, so bring a sweater and a positive attitude!

Passion Pit will induce a dance party with their hit songs “Sleepyhead” and “Take a Walk”, two singles that have shaped the indie-pop scene since their release. And between KONGOS’ classic alternative sound and Sir Sly’s low-fi tone, this year’s Oysterfest offers an eclectic mix for everyone to enjoy.

Offering more than just live music, the one-day festival will also include a silent disco, oyster pairings, a “Shuck and Suck” contest and a presentation by The Wild Oyster Project as a way to educate attendees about the conservation of oysters throughout the Bay Area. Showbams will be there to gobble up some barbecued oysters, so hopefully we’ll see you there!

GA tickets are almost gone but are still available to purchase here, while a limited number of tickets remain for the private tables backstage, which can seat up to eight and include a full bar, table service, table-side seafood platters, a buffet, expedited Will Call, a meet-and-greet opportunity, and an event T-shirt and tote bag. Children who are under the age of 12 and are accompanied by a parent will receive free admission. For more information, visit Oysterfest’s Twitter and Facebook pages.
