Street Scene is a music festival held each summer in San Diego, California. Street Scene has now become one of America's largest annual music festivals, including over 70 musical acts covering different musical genres and styles on multiple stages.



Beginning in 1984, a San Diego native created Street Scene which consisted of two events the first year; one in May and the other in August.[1] The event was held on historic 5th Avenue, between J & K Streets, for the first few years, with two stages. In 1987, it grew to take up two blocks, but still with only two stages. The following year, Street Scene grew once again to include five stages over several blocks; the music now began to feature diverse genres including zydeco, blues, rock and alternative rock.

In 1995, Street Scene grew once again, into a music event that encompassed 3 days. The Taste of San Diego also added food and cultures from around the globe and tasty morsels for people of all ages to enjoy.

In 2005, Street Scene re-located from downtown's Gaslamp Quarter to Qualcomm Stadium in Mission Valley.

In 2007, Street Scene was planned to move to the Del Mar Fairgrounds, but later changed to the Coors Amphitheatre in Chula Vista, California.

In 2008, Street Scene returned to the streets of downtown San Diego in the East Village neighborhood[2].

The 2009 event returned to the streets of the East Village on August 28 and 29.
