Junkstock

Junkstock is a free, family-friendly annual free event held every July in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park.

The Junkstock Mission: No matter how much money or how much musical training you have, you can be a musician. We strive to shatter the myth that creating music is an elite pursuit; whether you play a plastic bucket or a thousand dollar guitar, expressing yourself and your soul through sound is what it's all about. We want all who attend Junkstock to leave empowered by the fact that they can play an instrument, whether it’s a voice, a guitar or a tuna can.

The event features an acoustic stage with great performers who encompass the vision that instruments, composition and performance come from, sometimes, unexpected places. Also included in the day are free workshops which teach you to make your make items from your recycling bin as well as household and hardware store items sing (or clank whatever the case may be)!

Music is everywhere, go out and grab it!

It should be noted that I arrived late in the day and was therefore unable to photograph all of the performances.
