GATHERING OF THE TRIBES The Second Renaissance
Gathering of the Tribes music festival is moving to a different month! The Tribe is gathering in October due to renovation delays at Midway. The tribe are working out dates with new bands for our annual music and art festival, which is supported by the local music community and Pow Magazine. Tickets will go on sale August 18th and sold at the Gathering of The Tribes pre party show hosted by Down Dirty Shake’s 5h residency at The Milk Bar. Visit us in two weeks to kick off our festival in San Francisco.

Gathering of the Tribes: The Second Renaissance is our second music and art festival created to bring the local music and art community together from the San Francisco and Oakland psychedelic movement. One thing that sets this festival apart from other West Coast music festivals is that Gathering of Tribes gives new, up and coming local bands an opportunity to showcase their music, in addition to sharing the stage with established acts from the Bay Area and the West Coast. Every year, Gathering of the Tribes invites local visual artists to showcase their work for bands, which has been a long tradition since the days of the Red Dog Saloon, The Matrix and Avalon Ballroom. Additionally, independent merchants come together as a single marketplace to sell their goods. “The first Gathering of Tribes in 2015 was more than just a festival–it served as a convention for artists and musicians to showcase their talents, some of which probably had not played together.
The festival gave artists a chance to see other bands play, exchange ideas, network and mingle with the music patrons that came to see them for the first time. I expect the same camaraderie for the second festival.” Says Dennis Gonzales, SFGS Festival coordinator.
