This May, San Francisco is getting a two-day electronic dance music party of titanic proportions: I Love This City will bring huge names like Tiësto, Steve Aoki, Duck Sauce, James Murphy, the Crystal Method, and many more to the AT&T Park parking lot over Memorial Day weekend, May 25 and 26.
No doubt seeing to capitalize on the popularity (and profitability) of electronic dance music, the event will be produced by concert giant Live Nation, which books large Bay Area venues like Shoreline Amphitheater, Oracle Arena, HP Pavilion, and San Francisco's historic Fillmore. I Love This City is actually a two-city party -- on Saturday, May 26 and Sunday, May 27, a companion event will be held in San Diego, with Skrillex headlining.
A statement out today was notably vague on the finality of the S.F. lineup, holding a "special guest" slot open at the top of the bill for Friday's performance. So who will it be? Your guess is as good as ours, but check out the confirmed lineup for I Love This City S.F. after the jump:
Friday, May 25 Headliners
James Murphy (DJ Set)
Saturday, May 26 Headliners
Other performers confirmed for SF:
The Crystal Method
Kill the Noise
Tickets for the 18+ I Love This City are currently $150 for a two-day pass and $250 for a two-day VIP pass. Single-day passes are not currently on sale, but look for future updates on All Shook Down.
