Welcome one and all to an immersive '70s experience like nothing else on earth. Some call it a music festival. Others call it a costume party. Many call it a family and anyone who's ever been calls it the best day of the year. Truth be told, Stache Bash is all those things and more.
It's a community of like minded, funky spirits who gather, dripping in disco, to turn up and get down. Together, we unleash our funky auras and time-travel back to the era when love was free and soul reigned supreme. Bell-bottomed booties shake beneath glimmering disco balls. Mustaches glow in the golden sun. Disco-dosed dance moves break free and we boogie. We bust out. We Bash.
After 15 years of funkin' up Southern California with a heroic disco party that gets bigger and better every year, the Bash is traveling upstate to spread the love. A long time in the making, we're excited to introduce the inaugural San Francisco Mustache Bash – an immersive, authentic '70s shindig where queens dress mean and bros rock mo's.
In all the right ways, the SF Bash will be a spitting image of San Diego's—world-class musicians serenading a sexy crowd of funky love makers with outrageous ‘70s outfits and superfly mustaches. An eclectic community of new friends from all walks of life gathered around a common goal—to funk harder than The City's ever funked before. It's time to pop that Bashin' cherry, Bay Area.
We've been looking forward to this one for years, and now, the inaugural SF Bash is finally here. A two-day, '70s-style boutique funk festival at the Phoenix Hotel with poolside sets from Paco Versailles, Dam Swindle, Crazy P, and more, The Mustache Bash is bringing the soul of the '70s back to San Francisco, and everyone's invited.
Fueled by its ever growing family of devout Bashers, The Mustache Bash has been funkin' up America's Finest City since 2008. A community now numbering in the thousands, The San Diego Bash comes to life every March with a light-up dance floor, a disco roller rink and four fabulous stages showcasing the best funk and disco talent under the sun.
It began with no venue, no stages, no artists or investors; just a group of best buds with a funky vision and a backyard. That vision became a house party where five dollars at the door bought you a bottomless cup, an iPod pumped throwbacks through a makeshift speaker, the living room lit up with disco dance moves, and a family of funky, '70s souls came to fruition. Mustaches were mandatory back then. Dudes and dames alike came clad in show-stopping '70s outfits. And by the time the cops arrived to shut us down, a legendary holiday was born.
15 years later, The Mustache Bash has grown into SoCal's definitive funk-fest, a special day each year when friends get together to set their dancin' spirits asail and fly their funk flags undeniably high.
Whether you're a first-timer or veteran, black, white, red or brown, he, she, it or they—whoever and whatever you are—step into the Bash, and you're joining a family. Every beating heart in the building is part of it, and the more different you are, the more you fit in. An eccentric family is the driving force behind the Bash, and every Basher is key to its success. Go ahead and bump rumps with your new best friends. You might be strange, but damn sho aren't strangers!
The Bash is all about breathing new life into decades-old genres with futuristic flare. Alumni range from legendary funkmasters like Lee Fields and Greyboy Allstars to modern day funk and disco mavens like Yung Bae, Yuksek and The Floozies, plus a dream team of homegrown talent. Whether you're grooving to remastered classic hits from The Mustache Bash Family Band, boogying down to remixed disco slappers from our crew of family DJs, or discovering new favorites from '70s-inspired touring acts, the Bash is your sonic sanctuary.
