Slow Food Rocks: Tickets On Sale Now!

Slow Food Rocks will bring together Phil Lesh and Friends, Gnarls Barkley, Ozomatli, The New Pornographers, Medeski Martin & Wood and G Love & Special Sauce and the John Butler Trio for two days of concerts coinciding with Slow Food Nation. The main course: world-class rock and rock-flavored music defying limitations of genre. The icing on the cake: extraordinary views of the magical Golden Gate Bridge from the Great Meadow at Fort Mason.

Slow Food Rocks is only one of three public events permitted on the Great Meadow this year. The concert will be held on Saturday, August 30 from 11am to 7pm and Sunday, August 31 from 11am to 5:30pm.

Gnarls Barkley, the GRAMMY®-winning alternative music duo, headlines Saturday, August 30, sharing the stage with Ozomatli, The New Pornographers and Medeski Martin & Wood.

In a rare, hometown appearance, Phil Lesh and Friends will headline the concert on Sunday, August 31. Sunday’s other performers include G Love & Special Sauce and the John Butler Trio. Throughout the years, Phil Lesh and Friends have included some of the greatest names in rock music. The latest formation of Phil and Friends, including Lesh (the Grateful Dead’s bassist), Larry Campbell (guitar, mandolin, fiddle), Jackie Greene (vocals and guitar), Steve Molitz (keyboards) and John Molo (drums), debuted in September 2007 in Santa Barbara, CA.

Ann Tenakhongva, 62, and her husband, Clark Tenakhongva, 65, sort traditional Hopi Corn at their home on First Mesa on the Hopi Reservation in Arizona on September 28, 2022. The corn comes from the families’ field in the valley between First Mesa and Second Mesa, which Clark had just harvested. The corn is organized on racks to dry out and then stored in cans and bins for years to come. Much of the corn is ground up for food and ceremonial purposes. Corn is an integral part of Hopi culture and spirituality. (Photo by David Wallace)
