The organizers of San Diego's Blended Festival have announced the return of the unique hybrid wine and music fest, which is scheduled for October 15th and 16th. The festival premiered as an instant hit, selling out its inaugural event back in 2019. They now hope lightning will strike twice after announcing a stellar lineup brimming with major artists in the worlds of electronic, hip-hop, pop, and country music.
Headlining the wine-centric festival will be Grammy Award-winning duo The Chainsmokers, who will be joined by Deorro, Nelly, Loud Luxury, and more. The two-day event will also feature a stage with notable chefs as well as popular food vendors offering culinary experiences, such as celebrity sommelier Matthew-Lorèn.
“We’re thrilled to present this unique mix of genres and big talent to where it all began," said Kalika Moquin, Blended Festival Director, in a press release. “The Blended Fest brand is modeled to thrive where enthusiasts of music, wine, and culinary experiences reside and visit. San Diego encompasses all three."
