The previous announcement contained big names gracing 7+ stages spread across the downtown waterfront and included a broad diversity of music genres with rock, indie rock, hip hop, edm, rap, reggae, americana, and more.

Guitar Legends 3 will bring some of the best guitarists on the planet and an All-Star Band to the Wonderfront stage on Nov 24th. Presented by America Salutes You, the broadcasted concert event will be filmed live and air as a holiday special to raise funds for veterans and first responders charities.

Wonderfront co-founder Paul Thornton states; “Our goal with this lineup was to have it stacked from start to finish each day with great artists. It’s hard to really call any certain bands our so-called headliners as so many lines of bands on this festival are all headliners in their own right. We’ve had a tough time choosing between so many talented artists across the many genres into the finite number of stage slots available. We also wanted a great mix of artists across the time slots, so that not all the bigger names were just playing at the same later times. We really appreciate the artists that have worked with us to make that possible. And since announcing the response has been fantastic, and many more artists have approached us and that is why the number of artists keeps growing, plus we are still booking the artists for the boat parties and the Silent Disco DJ sets.”

In the early 2000s, Tony Hawk’s Boom Boom HuckJam Tour was the biggest, high-flying spectacle in action sports, traveling the country and playing the biggest arenas in the land. Now, Tony is bringing back the HuckJam ramp to Wonderfront with bands like Pennywise, Suicidal Tendencies, X, DJ Z-Trip and a crew of some of the best professional vert skaters and bmx bikers in the world, including: Tony Hawk himself, Andy MacDonald, Bucky Lasek, Lizzie Armanto, Kevin Staab, Elliot Sloan, Lincoln Ueda, Simon Tabron, Jimmy Wilkins, Paul Luc Ronchetti, Evan Doherty , Marcello Bastos, and Jordyn Barret.

“I’m excited to bring back the Huckjam format (choreographed and freestyle skating with live music) after 10 years of hiatus, and there is no better place for it than my hometown. I’m proud to be involved with Wonderfront, and it’s been a blast helping handpick the legendary punk bands for our stage.” Tony Hawk, Wonderfront Festival Partner.

Rob Machado and Trevor Hoffman, who, like Tony Hawk, became involved in the festival early on as investors and ambassadors are thrilled with the caliber of the lineup and the mindful approach that was taken to get it to where it is today. Plus Rob is inviting some special friends to jam with him on Sunday, as Rob Machado & Friends.

Recently publicized partner, Miguel, announced he will be getting involved with creative activations and marketing, to promotion and performing, including hosting a think-tank dinner that includes a mix of world-class artists and leading entrepreneurs who are Founder/CEOs from the business world, to explore and discover new creative opportunities.

Miguel adds: “It’s an opportunity to highlight the unique energy and charm of San Diego. Being born and raised in SoCal and spending lots of time in SD, it all feels very natural and I’m excited to contribute both as a stakeholder and performer!”

Festival co-founder Ernie Hahn summarizes; “This event is for San Diego, by San Diego, and takes the best of the Wonderfront and the Gaslamp at a time of year San Diego needs a big event to bring us all together. All of San Diego and the greater Baja area are represented with the genres of music, food, art and experience Wonderfront will bring to the world November 22-24, 2019. We are really stoked for San Diego and will be working with everyone to make this an incredible city-wide celebration!”
