Editorial Review of
Del Mar Fairgrounds- Seaside Stage
With the Pacific Ocean as a backdrop the new Seaside Stage venue will offer an unmatched outdoor concert experience that includes majestic views, clear acoustics and a warm summer evening atmosphere. The Seaside Stage is a non-smoking venue with Festival style viewing, no reserved seats. Fans must be 18 years or older to attend all weekend concerts.
While the main attraction at the Del Mar Races is, of course, the world renowned Thoroughbred Horse Racing Competition, more and more people are heading to the Del Mar Racetrack to enjoy the events that take place around the races, such as the Del Mar Summer Concert Series. With top bands and world renowned artists taking the stage, there is something for everyone at the Del Mar Fairgrounds.
The concerts in the Del Mar Summer Concert Series are free for fans attending the races ($20.00 if you are not attending that day’s races). All concerts will be held at the new Seaside Stage, which is a non-smoking venue. For Friday shows, patrons under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. For Saturday and Sunday concerts, patrons must be 18 years or older to attend. All concerts are standing room only; there are no reserved seats (get there early to get the best spots). Concerts start after the last race of the day.
