This eclectic mix ensures that there’s something for everyone to enjoy, as we strive to create inclusive spaces where everyone can experience the wonders of artistic expression.

Behind the Illuminate Live series is an understanding that public art, and specifically live music, has the power to transcend barriers, create shared experiences, and evoke a sense of wonder and awe. The Bandshell’s 2023 lineup promises to be a symphony of cultural diversity and artistic innovation, with local talent and international acts taking center stage to captivate audiences under the San Francisco sky.
