Hardly Strictly Bluegrass: The Editors Picks Playlist (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

In the battle for San Francisco music festival domination, there are three primary contenders: the concert for the record labels (Outside Lands), the concert for the hipsters (Treasure Island) and the concert for the people (Hardly Strictly Bluegrass).

Well people get ready, it's Hardly Strictly Bluegrass weekend and it's 90 degrees outside. With a cooler-friendly policy, 50 food and drink purveyors and nearly 100 artists including big names like Broken Social Scene, Thurston Moore and Merle Haggard alongside fantastic smaller acts all playing FOR FREE, it's sure to be one hell of a show on a perfectly sunny San Francisco weekend.

It's also sure to have a lot of people with an estimated attendance dancing dangerously close to one million. But despite middle-aged anxieties, it's still possible to catch plenty of great music with a little preplanning.

Check out the full festival lineup on the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass website, but take a look at our editors' playlist below for a weekend preview:
