Organizers of the 2014 Folsom Street Fair have announced the entertainers for the September 21 festival, which takes place on Folsom Street between Eighth and 13th streets.

“This year’s line up is arguably one of our very best,” Folsom Street Events Executive Director Demetri Moshoyannis said in a news release Tuesday, July 8. “We have been able to attract some of the best talent in the indie rock world – and many of them are queer to boot. It’s a diverse, sexy, and exciting offering. I hope people discover some new music and go out to support these incredible talents.”

Austra, MNDR, and Monarchy are this year’s main stage headliners. Bay Area acts including Zbörnak and The Younger Lovers will also appear on the main stage.

The nonprofit, which last year distributed $358,779 from the festival and related events to other charities, aims to present a broad range of music “from power punk to hip-hop and electronic to indie,” organizers said. “Folsom Street Fair presents a tour de force of live acts that will appeal to its queer audience, pairing alternative music with alternative sexualities.”

The fair will also include the Magnitude and Deviants dance areas. Circuit legends Tony Moran and Tracy Young will be the headliners at Magnitude, while The Cucarachas will be among the main entertainment at Deviants.

Full line-ups and schedules are available on the Folsom Street Events website.
