West Coast Weekender Brings New Talent to San Diego May 4 through 7, 2017
The new music conference and festival returns for a second year
San Diego—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.
In October, New York-raised DJ/producer MANIK told DJ Mag, “West Coast Weekender... brought in the brand new with the old school. The crowd was so diverse; it was true house music. The vibes were insanely good and I loved every minute of it.”
Talent for 2017 will include Mark Farina, LTJ Bukem, Oliver Dollar, Purple Disco Machine, Marques Wyatt, Walker & Royce, Matrix & Futurebound, Enei, Manik, Sunshine Jones, Manoo, Mr. V, Rich Medina, Oscar P, Julius tMt, Lars Behrenroth, Jask, Doza, Mark Quark, Cris Herrera, Greg Eversoul, Eric Medina, Garva, MC Ridda, Adam Gibbons, Antonio Manigrassi, David Montoya, Eric Groove, Diaztek, Ryan Bauer, Jayvi Velasco, Marshall Jones, Bass Exotic, Bumpy Nuggets, Nimbus, Olga Arteaga, Rani “G”, David Sabat, Chris Liosi, Terri Lee, Lillian So, BigDaddyDoug and more.
