LOCATION & TRANSPORTATION
The Phono del Sol Music & Food Festival takes place at San Francisco’s Potrero del Sol Park, with two festival entrances, one at 25th Street and Utah Street, and another at 25th and San Bruno Street.
Attendees are strongly encouraged to use public transportation, and Potrero del Sol is conveniently situated near multiple public transit options. BART riders can walk to Potrero del Sol from the 24th Street Mission Station, while MUNI riders can use the 9, 10, 19, 27, 33, and 48 lines.
A limited amount of first-come, first-served bike parking will be available at the festival entrance at 25th Street and Utah Street. Please take your valuables with you, as we are not responsible for any loss or theft in the bike parking area.
Parking in the area is extremely limited. If you do drive please be respectful of our neighbors and do not block driveways or crosswalks.
Please direct your ride-share vehicles to drop off at San Bruno and 25th St.
Hours & Entry
Festival gates will open at 12 pm, with music beginning promptly at 1 pm. This year Phono del Sol is FREE and open to all!

The safety and comfort of our attendees is very important. If you have a concern or witness unsafe activities, please speak with Event Staff or Security.

For questions and general information about the Festival, stop by a Donation Station located at the festival entries. Our volunteers will be happy to assist you.
Phono del Sol festival merchandise is available at the Merch Booth on Utah street. Pick up a tote, bandana, or commemorative metal cup to support Phono! Sales benefit the admission-free festival and The Bay Bridged’s local cultural programs.
Refillable Water Station
There is a refillable water station located on the West side of the park near the skate park. You can fill your own water bottles, or you can purchase a reusable cup at the merch booth.
Weather in San Francisco is always unpredictable, though Potrero del Sol usually benefits from the Mission sun. There are only a few areas with shade in the park. Come prepared with layers and use sunscreen in all weather, and remember to stay hydrated!
In the event of an emergency, please follow instructions from Security and House staff or any announcements from stage.
See you on June 15th!
