The America’s Cup and the Dockers® brand, a San Francisco based global clothing brand, are partnering to produce the Sounds of San Francisco. This series of free concerts this summer will take place from August 9 through September 12 at the America’s Cup Pavilion at Piers 27/29.
“Given our heritage as a San Francisco based company, we are proud to be able to support local musicians by bringing them to the America’s Cup Pavilion stage for all of San Francisco to enjoy,” said Adrienne Lofton Shaw, Chief Marketing Officer of the Dockers® brand.
Emerging San Francisco area artists will have the opportunity to perform on the stage at the America’s Cup Pavilion over six afternoons spread across the summer.

“The Dockers® brand and the America’s Cup are neighbors, and together we wanted to give something back to the San Francisco music community and America’s Cup fans from around the world,” Lofton Shaw said.
“San Francisco has a long heritage as a hotbed of music culture and we are proud to be able to help the America’s Cup offer this fantastic stage on our waterfront to these talented young artists.”
“The America’s Cup is pleased to provide this world-class stage to local artists on select afternoons for the public to enjoy,” said America’s Cup CEO Stephen Barclay. “By providing these young talented musicians with a high-profile stage to share their music, we hope we can help bring new San Francisco talent to a wider audience as part of the America’s Cup experience on the downtown waterfront this summer.”
