West Coast Weekender returns for its second go May 4-7 to imprint itself on the coastal city of San Diego. Last year’s inaugural event attracted over 1,000 people from across the country. That freshman class, made up of old schoolers and new schoolers, left reinvigorated with the infectiousness of a thriving underground. Even in cities like San Diego, where the mainstream holds strong, there’s a hunger for underground music counterculture.
West Coast Weekend invites everyone to be a part of this movement by making it an affordable and rewarding experience.
While many festival prices soar, West Coast Weekender is one of the most accessible dance events in the country for its talent, workshops, networking, and beautiful atmosphere. Last year artists played day and night, and industry experts spoke on panels to an intimate audience of music enthusiasts. Those artists included Rich Medina, Friction, Dara, Gene Farris, Christian Martin, Osunlade, and supporting acts from up and down the California coast. This year, more panels and workshops are planned to accommodate the demand for networking and learning.
