West Coast Weekender • May 3rd-6th, 2018 • San Diego, California
West Coast Weekender will present its third annual, electronic music conference and festival in San Diego, California From Thursday May 3 – Sunday May 6. The event truly pays homage to the American westside’s rich underground dance music culture.
Attendees between the ages of 25-40 years old will participate in panel discussions and workshops led by DJs and industry mavericks, hosted throughout the weekend at the Lafayette Hotel in North Park, San Diego. The hotel will play host to daily brunch and poolside entertainment, as well as hosting opening and closing events in the ballroom on Thursday and Sunday.
The festival will take place on Friday May 4 and Saturday May 5th at the World Beat Center, a multi-cultural arts and music organization, in historic Balboa Park.
San Diego is known for its beaches, parks and warm climate. It has an estimated population of 1,581,069 and is the second-largest city in California. With over 50% out of towners traveling to the event, this creates an economic boom for San Diego. Our mission is to create an affordable memorable experience for every weekender and have this be the event they look forward to each year.
Join us May 3-6, in beautiful Southern California, as we celebrate music, dance, and culture with all the artists featured here contributing to the vibe! Weekend passes include entrance to all the parties and panels for $120 (while supplies last). Secure yours today!
