The Del Mar Thoroughbred Club (DMTC) announced its 2015 summer concert series on Monday morning -- and it's a doozy.
The scenic track situated where the turf meets the surf will be hosting some of music's most-iconic and in-demand artists on the planet come July, August and September.
Even though they're keeping their July 17 kickoff date artist a secret, the DMTC's blockbuster concert season promises to be in full swing by the time reggae legends the Wailers hit the stage July 24. Next up, and always an instant sell-out scenario in San Diego, Orange County punk/rock stalwarts the Offspring are slated to take the stage the following day.
August and September hold even more in store as summer hits full swing. ReggaeFest returns Aug. 1 -- this time with none other than Ziggy Marley -- while Steel Pulse get the positive vibes flowing on Aug. 14. Pepper deliver a one-two reggae/rock punch on Aug. 21 and one of the most beloved (and one of our favorite funny guys ever) Weird Al Yankovic keeps the party goin’ on Aug. 28.
The DMTC closes out the lineup with a huge finale, with EDM superstar DJ Paul Oakenfold manning the decks on Sept. 4 and alt-rock demigods Weezer (of "Beverly Hills" and "Buddy Holly" fame) making a return appearance to the track on Sept. 6.
As of right now, "Special Guests" are listed for July 17, July 31 and Aug. 7. While we can only speculate who will be filling out those nights, if the rest of the lineup is any indication, they'll most likely be booked with some very big names.
The concerts take place after the last races of the day and are always free for patrons of the track. Otherwise, tickets are $20 if fans don't geafter the last race has occurred. For more information, please visit here.
