The Phono Del Sol Music Festival is considered to be one of the most popular, family-friendly music events in the Bay Area. This low-key event, organized by the non-profit organization The Bay Bridged, provides attendees a reprieve from large crowds which are characteristic of most music festivals. Largely run by volunteers, this festival was first started as a free event in 2011 with the aim of bringing artists of national renown to the people of the Bay Area. Over the years, Phono Del Sol has had local as well as national artists like the Coathangers, Aesop Rock and Duckwrth among others grace its stage. The festival grounds are lined with food trucks and stalls providing food and refreshments, along with a skate park for attendees.
