SAN DIEGO, CA - The AMP Music Festival is a new all-day, outdoor, multi genre concert event on Saturday, September 17, 2011 at the Market Creek Plaza. With a 3,000-person capacity, the venue will feature contemporary independent artists performing live from 12pm to 9pm on two stages.

AMP Music Festival is the first major music event in San Diego focusing on Asian American musicians, with music in all genres, styles and scenes. The festival promotes independent and undiscovered talent in this growing population, while raising money for scholarships for students in high schools in low socioeconomic areas and high concentrations of “at risk” youth.

Local San Diego musicians including San Diego Music Award Nominees 321 Stereo and Jane Lui will have a strong presence in our music festival, but AMP will also have talent from Los Angeles and as far up as San Francisco and New York.  Festival goers can follow their favorite artists and discover new ones on the event website, where the full line-up can be seen.  Website is
