“Due to the festival’s growing popularity, we are very pleased to be offering two full days of great music along the Mare Island Waterfront,” stated Kevin Frazier. “As we head into our third year, we are excited about all the upgrades we’ve implemented for this year’s festival…it’s shaping up to be a great experience to match the incredible lineup we’ve put together!”

Sunday, September 10th will be a Spectacular Soul Fest. The California Honeydrops, Fantastic Negrito, Monophonics and The Alton’s will perform.
Festival goers can bring their own portable seating for general admission or partake in the upgraded experience of the VIP lounges. The lounges have specialty bars, whiskey and wine tasting, culinary treats, indoor restrooms and priority seating near the stage. Additionally, seating is available in the Chef de Cuisine food court, beer garden and along the waterfront.
San Francisco/Bay Area attendees can take the SF Bay Ferry to and from the festival. Aboard, they can begin partying early with cocktail service or while enjoying a nice caffeinated beverage on the upper deck. The Dock of Bay festival is close to the Mare Island Bay Ferry Terminal for ease when traveling.
