3. Follow us on Twitter and grab your bros and sisses. We’ll be updating throughout the tour to let everyone know where we are en route. Tell your bike and music heads to sign up on Twitter and follow BMF around the city!

4. Ride and sing and revolt and dream!

Festival Volunteers! We need lots of help! It’s going to be a day of fun in the sun with a rowdy mix of touring and local groups getting the crowd riled up about Bike Power and Sustainable Music. Won’t you join on in?

Calling All Community Organizations

Collaborate with us! Do you have a cool community activity that we can tie-in to the BMF like a farm workday, social activity that you and your friends are organizing, or want to table for your non-profit organization at the BMF? Let’s do it!

Sponsor BMF

BMF is made possible by the support of audiences and some wonderful local individuals and businesses. We encourage support via cash or in-kind materials/services to help support your local Bicycle Music Festival. Contact us and we’ll be in touch! Current contributors are:

Scouting Locations

Please let us know if you’ve found an awesome spot for a future pedal-powered concert.

Music!

If your city doesn’t have a list of performers yet, there might be room for your band or your favorite band. Send us to your myspace, sonicbids, or website. All genres welcome to apply. You needn’t be a regular bike rider, but you do need to be willing to show up to your gig by bike! Chances are that someone in the community can help you shlep your gear if you don’t have a load-carrying rig.

  6. Hi people, I met some of you at the Gaia Festival. Currently I am organizing an event for either Oct. 14, 20 or 21 in downtown Santa Rosa. I am waiting to find out from the Rock the Bike people when they are available. Then depending on their availability I will get the permit and insurance.
    Prop. 34 people are on board to supply advertizing and speakers. Do you all think you could perform and if so how much do you charge for an afternoon gig of about two hours?
    I also can supply a place to camp for your group on my place if need be.
    I have been listening to your music ever since Gaia…inspiring!

  7. Hi Claire, so sorry to miss this invite. Hope we get another sometime. Have a blessed new year!
