Stern Grove Festival’s 79th Season kicks off in a big way with The Big Picnic starring Janelle Monáe!

Stylish and soulful, GRAMMY-nominated singer/songwriter Janelle Monáe is a dynamic performer, producer, avant-garde funkstress, and a creative visionary.

Local nine-piece soul and funk band Midtown Social opens the show with danceable grooves.

Midtown Social will premiere a new work as part of the Festival’s local artist commission series, “Interplay: Artists in Concert with Nature.”

Janelle Monáe: The fabulous Janelle Monáe brings her futuristic funky sound to kick off Stern Grove Festival’s 79th Season at The Big Picnic. A true performer, Monáe is recognized for her powerhouse R&B tunes, commanding stage presence, and a dynamic fashion sense defined by black and white power suits.

Midtown Social: The second you walk in to a Midtown Social concert, you’ll wish you had worn more comfortable shoes. With funky influencers like Sly and the Family Stone and Tower of Power, this San Francisco nine-piece ensemble released their debut album Down on Sixth, independently funded by a Kickstarter campaign.
