Sweet 'n' Salty 

Wednesday, Dec 19 2012

Repeated exposure and adoration from the masses have turned most popular music and art festivals into blown out, oversaturated, and commercialized trash -- vain attempts to recapture the aura and frenetic glory of Woodstock or Monterey Jazz. Today’s festival scene is a post-breakdown Dave Chappelle -- broken, lost, and aimlessly wandering for an adequate sense of home (ahem, S.S. Coachella). Then, there’s the Wintersalt Music and Arts Festival. This wintertime follow-up to 2010’s Summersalt offers a once in a life opportunity to attend the inauguration of an EDM festival come San Francisco tradition. The event is a promising and earnest attempt to embody the frenzy and freedom of our city’s unique music and arts scenes, brought to you by the folks at Eye Heart SF ("Streets of San Francisco" NYE, S.F. Mardi Gras). In addition to tunes, Wintersalt brings live art installations by Jeremy Fish, Nate Van Dyke, Buff Monster, and Benny Gold, beer gardens, and food trucks to the resplendence of a New Year’s weekend and mayhem of surviving a Mayan apocalypse. The festival's all-star lineup includes DJ Shadow, Travis Barker and the Beastie Boys' Mix Master Mike, Theophilus London, St. Lucia, Diplo, and K. Flay.
Fri., Dec. 28, 6 p.m.; Sat., Dec. 29, 2012
