    311 and Matisyahu team up for their Del Mar Racetrack Summer Concert Series show on Aug. 13, 2016.

    The Del Mar Racetrack's 2016 Summer Concert Series lineup begins July 22 and includes some HUGE names. The scenic track situated where the turf meets the surf will be hosting some of music's most iconic and in-demand artists during the next three months.

    Cold War Kids are the track's  opener on July 22. But the fun doesn't stop there: The next show scheduled features indie-rock/soul favorites Fitz & the Tantrums on July 29, and capping off the month is the beloved Reggae Fest featuring Ziggy Marley (making another return to Del Mar) on July 30.

    August and September hold even more in store as summer hits full swing. Girl Talk bring the mashup/dance fun on Aug. 5, while Brian Setzer gets in the swing of things the next day. The following weekend, 311 and Matisyahu head up a huge double-bill of positive vibes on Aug. 13, and Pepper return to the track to deliver a reggae/rock punch on Aug. 26.

    The DMTC concert season closes out the lineup with a huge finale: the classic reggae sounds of the inimitable Wailers on Sept. 2, and electro-pop superstar duo Chromeo will mand the decks on Sept. 3.

    As always, the concerts take place after the last races of the day and are free for patrons of the track. Otherwise, tickets are $20 if fans get there after the last race has occurred. For more information, please visit here.
