Wonderfront Music & Arts Festival Returns To San Diego’s Waterfront

Wonderfront Music & Arts Festival is back! The return of the 7+ stage, 80+ band, 3-day music, culinary and arts festival descends upon the San Diego’s waterfront for a packed weekend of entertainment.

The festival will feature stages and activations spread across the various parks and piers along the Port of San Diego, from the Embarcadero Park up to Broadway Pier.

Wonderfront Festival Surprise Guest Headliner: Schoolboy Q

Wonderfront Music & Arts Festival is pleased to announce the highly anticipated release of Sunday’s mystery surprise guest. A 35-year-old California native, hailing from South Central Los Angeles, rapper Schoolboy Q will be headlining the Coors Light Stage on Sunday, November 20th in Seaport Village at 8:30PM-9:45PM.

Q spent three years in the mixtape underground before launching his career properly in 2011. His first mixtape caught the attention of Kendrick Lamar and TDE, which led to Lamar forming the Black Hippy collective, with Jay Rock, Ab-Soul, and Schoolboy as members. His debut album, “Setbacks”, was released under Top Dawg in 2011. Fast forward to February 2014 when Q released “Oxymoron”, which debuted at number one on the Billboard 200.

Q spent most of 2015 touring but dropped “That Part” in 2016 as a single as part of the “Blank Face LP”, which debuted at number two. After the “Blank Face LP”, Q stayed busy by hopping on various projects including the Black Panther soundtrack in 2018. Three years after “Blank Face”, he returned to working on his solo career, dropping “Crash Talk” in 2019.
