The inaugural Wonderfront Music & Arts Festival, November 22-24, 2019, is nothing like San Diego has ever seen.
Here are 13 reasons why you won’t want to miss this epic experience.
Lineup Quality & Diversity
Lineup is stacked with great artists from top to bottom. Our daytime lineup is stronger than any other festival. We believe in the quality of the lineup all the way through, not just a few names on the top line. True festies love to discover the best emerging artists. Also the lineup covers almost all genres of music, and is the first mainstream US festival to truly integrate Latin music stages as a consistent and major part of the lineup.
Location Location Location
All along the waterfront in downtown San Diego, one of the finest cities in the world. You are on the ocean, yet you are steps from all that the downtown has to offer including the Gaslamp Quarter, Little Italy, the waterfront, over 250 bars, restaurants and breweries, and only a 15-minute ferry ride from the festival docks to Coronado Island.
In & Out Privileges
Customize your experience as you can come and go as much as you like. Check out downtown, ferry to Coronado Island, boat/SUP/kayak on the water, take a nap at your hotel steps away, go to lunch or dinner wherever you want. It’s your weekend, you decide how you want to spend it.
The GA Pass gets you access to all the great stuff: Silent Disco, Giant Sports Bar, The Hideaway, all the game zones, the Yacht parties, the water taxis with bars and bands on them, the comedy, the art exhibits, the lounges, ALL of it.
November in San Diego is the sunniest month of the year, with the perfect SoCal weather; highs in the low to mid 70’s, and lows in the 60’s. Perfect for a festival.
At Wonderfront get on the water. Right at the festival you can rent kayaks, SUP boards, waverunners, even speed boats. Take a Patriot Jet Boat ride, take a sunset dinner cruise, or take in a morning Yoga on the pier. Play in our game zones around the parks, or join in all the sports games in our Giant Sports Bar. We get you hands on, and have so much more than just music for you to experience.
Moving between Stages
Wonderfront makes moving between stages part of the experience. Take the water taxis with bars and bands, take scooters between the venues, jump on the festival’s Old Town Shuttle tours moving you between the venues, or take our WonderFRED electric buggies. And if you prefer to walk the beautiful promenade, check out the entertainers along the way – it’s all part of the experience.
Food & Drinks
We have a food hall with waterfront dining, cantinas, and everything from sit down dining to food trucks. And we have a Craft Beer Village featuring some of the top local breweries, plus a great (and affordable) selection of spirits, wines, kombuchas, hard seltzers, and so much more. And your dining view is the ocean!
Hotels within Steps
Many of the downtown hotels are literally steps from the venues and the Gaslamp after parties. Plus with our in and out policy you can come and go from your hotel as you wish. Forget camping all weekend in dirty tents, enjoy comfortable Hamping at great discount rates we negotiated for you.
Wonderfront has only one VIP program and it’s a very limited number of guests. If you want that more exclusive experience we have an amazing program for you, and every Wonderfront VIP is treated the same.
At Wonderfront the San Diego International Airport is one mile from our gates. The trains and trolley stops are a couple blocks from our gates. The Ferry drops off at our festival docks. Loads of parking garages and lots within a few blocks radius. Easily scooter in or ride your bikes. It doesn’t get easier than this, every option is available to you.
