The sounds of rock, Latin music, and more will bring joy to BART riders in the months of September and October as the latest “welcome back” gesture by the agency to encourage riders to return to transit and reinforce the role public transit plays in fueling the Bay Area’s economy and culture.
BART is relaunching its Sound Tracks Music Program, which debuted last year, with a diverse lineup of local musicians in September and October. Mototombo SF will be entertaining at the Glen Park station:
Last year, folks were treated to music by 510JAZZ at the Glen Park station.
The bands will play acoustic sets in outdoor free plaza areas near or on BART property. All are invited to attend, and attendees may bring chairs to enjoy the show. The Oct. 7 performance at Glen Park BART will feature readings by finalists from BART Lines, the agency’s first short story contest, in partnership with the Bay Area literary festival Litquake.
The free music performance series follows BART’s 50% discount in September as well as its 50th Anniversary Celebration and Family Fun Festival on Sept. 10, which was attended by thousands. The outdoor series will help riders and neighbors make the most of the weather while supporting local artists during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The free music series is a collaboration between BART’s Office of External Affairs and BART’s Art Program to bring live performances to BART stations and to celebrate culture and the communities we serve.
