Editor’s Note: The Bay Area is home to a handful of large-scale music festivals, including BottleRock Napa Valley, Outside Lands and Hardly Strictly Bluegrass. To help our readers navigate through and/or catch up on the region’s best music events, I helped develop the San Francisco Chronicle’s topic page in 2016 where all our preview, live festival coverage and wrap-up stories live. Many of these stories are repurposed for our print publications, while some stories are online-only posts produced to maximize audience engagement on The Chronicle and SFGATE social media branded sites.
We’ve continued to use the page as the home of our all our festival season content.
