The Del Mar Racetrack, San Diego’s most stylish and thrilling annual event, celebrates the new season with Opening Day festivities on July 20, and will run through September 7, 2011.
Boasting seven jam-packed weeks of world-class Thoroughbred horse racing and weekly free concerts and events, the legendary Del Mar Racetrack season is something every local and visitor must experience first-hand. While we can’t wait to indulge in all things racetrack fashion, betting, and after-parties, our first sneak peek of the upcoming season is an exclusive glimpse into the 2011 Del Mar Racetrack Summer Concert Series.
The Del Mar Thoroughbred Club is proud to announce that Ben Harper will take the stage on Labor Day Sunday, September 4 during the 2011 Del Mar Summer Concert Series. Ben Harper’s 10th studio album, Give Till It’s Gone, releases to the public on May 17th and Harper is launching a worldwide tour to support it. Australia, New Zealand, Chile, France and select locations in the United States – including Del Mar – will host Harper and his captivating live performances. Not only will this be Ben Harper's debut at Del Mar, but it will also be the debut of the Seaside Stage. With the Pacific Ocean as a backdrop the new venue will offer an unmatched outdoor concert experience that includes majestic views, clear acoustics and a warm summer evening atmosphere.
More Music, Please! Look for the rest of the Del Mar Summer Concert Series line-up to be released in early-June on delmarscene.com. All ten performances of the Del Mar Summer Concert Series are free for fans attending the races. The Seaside Stage is a non-smoking venue. For Friday shows, as is the case with attending the races, patrons under 18-years of age must be accompanied by a legal guardian. Patrons must be 18 years or older to attend the weekend concerts.
