Wonderfront Music and Arts Festival San Diego
November 22 - November 24
The Wonderfront Music and Arts Festival will attract many famous names to perform here in November, but perhaps the real star is the city of San Diego itself.
Downtown San Diego boasts pleasant weather, even in November, waterfront parks and walkways. There are dozens of bars and restaurants, but combine them with several large marinas where the boat crews are ready to party and you have a great place for a festival.
Drop into this seven stages on which 95 artists will perform over the three days, and 30,000 tickets on sale then you have all the ingredients for a great experience.
Don’t forget the city itself, which is well worth exploring around the scheduled festival (see below).
History of the Wonderfront Music and Arts Festival
There is no history; this is the debut. It is partly designed to boost the downtown area and to promote the city both within and outside the state of California.
Wonderfront Festival Lineup
Headlining the inaugural Wonderfront Festival will be Miguel (Friday), Mios (Saturday) and Dmitri Vegas and Like Mike (Sunday), other bands confirmed include: Ben Harper, Slightly Stoopid, Don Omar and Nicky Jam. The full line up can be found here.
