With the inaugural Wonderfront Music and Arts Festival right around the corner, attendees may be curious about how they're going to spend their time. Well, wonder no more: Festival organizers have just announced daily set times for its Nov. 22-24 lineups.

More than 90 acts are scheduled across seven main stages and five "activation" stages along the San Diego waterfront, and festivalgoers will have their work cut out if they're thinking of hopping between 'em. Three stages are located at Embarcadero Marina Park North, three at Seaport Village, one at Hilton Bayfront Park, one at Ruocco Park, two at Broadway Pier, and one each aboard the California Princess, California Spirit and Marietta Boat.

Wonderfront officially kicks off with local electro-pop group Twin Ritual aboard the Marietta Boat at 2:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 22, while the main stage action begins with Cofresi in Seaport Village at 3:30 p.m. The night's headliners -- Ben Harper & the Innocent Criminals, Miguel and Don Omar -- all perform from 8:45-10 p.m. on their respective main stages. Gioli & Assia keep the party going at Broadway Pier from 10 p.m. to midnight. [For Friday's full set times, go here]

Saturday (Nov. 23) gets into action a bit earlier, with Henry & the Invisibles (Embarcadero North) and Wild Prxfits (Seaport Village) starting things off at 11:45 a.m. Again, three of the night's headliners -- MGMT, Migos, and Zion & Lennox -- perform from 8:45-10 p.m., while Boombox starts at 8:55 p.m. For clubbers, DJ Z-Trip performs from 10 p.m. to midnight at Broadway Pier. [For Saturday's full set times, go here]

To wrap up the fest, Sunday (Nov. 24) kick off with Haddon Cord (Embarcadero North) and Exmag (Seaport Village) at 11:45 a.m. and close out with Guitar Legends 3 (ft. Steve Lukather, Nancy Wilson, Billy Gibbons and Charlie Starr) at 8:30 p.m., both Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and Los Angeles Azules at 8:45 p.m., and Ghost Light at 8:55 p.m. The fest ends at 10 p.m. with the exception of the Marietta Boat, which calls it a night with Francesco DeMeo at 10:45 p.m. [For Sunday's full set times, go here]

Doors on Friday open at 3:15 p.m. at Seaport Village and Embarcadero North, while the fest's other venues open at 3:30 p.m. Doors for Saturday and Sunday open at 11:30 a.m. for Seaport Village and Embarcadero North, and 11:45 a.m. for the other venues.

With local luminaries Tony Hawk, Trevor Hoffman and Rob Machado onboard as brand ambassadors, Wonderfront's June roster unveiling didn't disappoint as huge music acts, one after another, were rattled off during a big downtown press conference. On Aug. 27, phase two was announced, which grew the lineup to more than 95 artists.
