Listen to 19 Different Hardly Strictly Performers Cover Bob Dylan

The free music festival begins tomorrow—but our Bob-obsessed playlist starts now.

Now in it's thirteenth year, the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival is a weekend filled with free music in Golden Gate Park. You might be among the hundreds of thousands going this year. Maybe not. Either way, you can't help but be impressed at the lineup: Boz Scaggs, Emmylou Harris, Bonnie Raitt, and Billy Bragg are all among this year's artists.

Want to know whom to see? Spotify is a great way to wade through the massive list of artists—this is well known. And we'd have been happy to have brought you one of those. But we're a little obsessive some times. We needed an angle. So instead of just any old list, here's our Spotify playlist of Hardly Strictly 2013 performers, each covering a different Bob Dylan song. (We cheated only slightly—there's a few folks songs on the list that Dylan himself recorded, and there's one song, "Dylan's Hard Rain" that's inspired by him. But still).
