Sizzling San Diego Summer Concerts on the Water

Summer weather, ocean views, live music concerts….what more could you want? Two tickets to enjoy this trifecta of San Diego summer? You got it! We want to send you to Humphreys Concert by the Bay to enjoy your own star-studded evening. We are lucky San Diego’s outdoor summer concerts don’t have to wait until June 21st to begin. With near perfect weather almost all year round many summer concert series are already in full swing with picturesque backdrops deserving of their own spotlight.

This summer, make sure to see a concert at one of the three waterfront venues below:

Playing everything from rock and jazz to comedy, blues and international music, concerts run from May to October, which is just how long summer lasts for us San Diegans.

Green Flash Concerts in the Tide-Pool Plaza

Green Flash Concert Series at Birch Aquarium

Enjoy a rockin’ sunset this summer at the seventh annual Green Flash Concert Series at Birch Aquarium at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego. The concert series, which kicks off May 16, combines live music with panoramic ocean views on the aquarium’s stunning outdoor Tide-Pool Plaza. Savory happy-hour appetizers, craft beers and wines are available for purchase. Keep an eye out for a real “green flash,” a rare optical phenomenon caused by refraction of light as the sun sets on the horizon.
