Seafood and tunes combine at this year’s Oysterfest


Fresh oysters, craft beer, views of the bay and live music? Count us in. The Eighth annual Oysterfest Music Festival will return to San Diego at Embarcadero Marina Park North on Friday, June 9 through Saturday, June 10 complete with fresh, succulent oysters, local beer, full bars and live music.

On June 9 attendees can groove to performances by Ghostland Observatory, Rocket From The Crypt, Dance Yourself Clean, The Shelters and The Verigolds. The Friday fun will kick off at 2 p.m. and go until 10 p.m. The following day, Matisayhu, Magic!, Dam Funk, Vokab Kompany, Josh Heinrichs and Janelle Phillips will take the stage starting at noon and rock through the night until 10 p.m.

Both days will offer plenty of oysters, local craft beer, other fine food options and full bars to enjoy. There will be a “shuck and suck” contest, DJs spinning tracks to keep the party going and a live art exhibit, as well.

Tickets are $30 for a one-day pass; $55 for a two-day pass and can be purchased at
