Street Scene announced their 25th Anniversary line-up today set for Friday, August 28, and Saturday, August 29. Originally hosted on 5th Avenue between J and K Streets in San Diegoâ€™s Gaslamp Quarter, this yearâ€™s event will be hosted in the heart of the East Village, Tailgate Park (next to Petco Park), encompassing 14th Street as the main area and bordered by Imperial Avenue to J Street.
Street Sceneâ€™s founder, Rob Hagey says, â€œItâ€™s great to get back to our roots,â€ because â€œdowntown San Diego creates such a great vibe, there’s nothing like it around. The party-like atmosphere that being in the streets makes Street Scene a true urban experience.â€
Tim Mays, who worked closely with Hagey both this year and last when the event returned to downtown San Diego is â€œreally excited with the lineup we’ve created this year. I’ve been involved with the booking since day one on this year’s event, and I think it’s one of the best lineups ever.â€
A limited number of two-day tickets are currently available for limited time at $122.00 each, as well additional event information can be found here.
More than 35 acts will perform this August, including:
