When you say ‘ShamROCK’, you don’t just think about food and booze. You also watch out for the parties, games, and everything entertainment.

The St. Patrick’s Day celebration, ShamROCK, has been providing the best live music event in San Diego for more than 20 years. What started as a project out of passion has turned into one of San Diego’s most celebrated festivities. And now that we’re back on our 26th year, we are more than excited to give attendees the best entertainment they can get. From Irish bands to dancers and DJs, you’ll find it all in this year’s ShamROCK.

Get ready to create new memories as we prepared a full day of Celtic inspired festivities. This year, we’ll be putting up three (3) stages in the streets of Gaslamp: The Pint Stage, The Pub Stage, and The Clover Stage.


The Pint Stage (Irish Rock Stage)

We are working extra hard to curate an authentic and lively lineup for the Pint Stage and get attendees to bust a move.

This year, we’ve got the nation’s top Irish, Celtic and Rock bands including Brogue Wave, Drunken Lullabies, The Fooks, Lexington Field, Finnegan Blue, Mckintree Boys, and our headliner, The Young Dubliners.

The Young Dubliners (also known as the Young Dubs) is an American rock band formed in Los Angeles, California in 1988. They call their music ‘Celtic’ Rock, which is a fusion of Irish traditional instruments and music and modern rock. They appeared on TV shows including ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live and had their songs featured in shows like Sons of Anarchy and Human Target.

It’s been 10 years since they’ve shared the stage with ShamROCK and fans couldn’t be more excited about it.


The Pub Stage

If you’re looking to discover new artists to follow or just want to chill and hang out with your friends, this is the right stage for you. The Pub Stage is set to give this Irish festival a taste of all music genres in an open format style. We give you the right shuffle of performers that would definitely bring out the music lover in you.

We’ve got a diverse list of performers including soulful, spiritual hip-hop artist Billie Knight, Inspire, DJ Jenny Pocket, Jimmy Boy, Jirafa, and Marc Cena.


The Clover Stage

Unleash the party animal in you at The Clover Stage. St. Paddy’s Day is nothing without the raves and parties. So we make sure we’ve got the party goers covered with the best of the best in the industry.

Here we’ve got performers to set up that high energy vibes including James Kennedy, Erick Diaz, Eddie Abarca, Jack Elgin, XOXO, Yodah, Pabulum, and our headliner, the EC Twins.


Aside from live music and entertainment, ShamROCK San Diego also boasts of Irish-inspired photo ops, shenanigan games, commemorative steins to fill with green and more “craic” (fun) to last an entire year! 

And to carry on our tradition, the Gaslamp Quarter will be painted green with 50,000 square feet of astroturf to take you straight to the hills of Ireland.
