PRIVATE ROCK SHOW

Full blown private rock show with only a few other friends?!? YES PLEASE! After trying this out last year there was no question we'd bring it back in 2020. An easy favorite for a lot of guests last year. 

Friend: "How was your week in San Diego??" You: "Dude, ummm, WE RENTED A SHIP AND CRUISED THE BAY SINGING TUNES!". SUNSET CRUISE ON THE SAN DIEGO BAY with SWITCHFOOT Last year we spent an INCREDIBLE evening with 200 of our closest friends sharing stories behind the songs and acoustic renditions of songs off our latest album Native Tongue.    It was SO memorable, so we are bringing it back for YOU!  A Private Chartered Hornblower Boat, Special Acoustic Set, Sunset, San Diego, You and Us…it’s gonna be AMAZING!

SUNSET CRUISE

No tour of San Diego is complete without a private boat tour of the San Diego Bay while singing some tunes! We're blessed to live in such a beautiful city and there's no better way to get the full experience than with a private cruise of the friendly San Diegan seas.

Dare you to tell us this doesn't look like a good time! Dare you to tell us this doesn't look like a good time!

BEACH DAY

New location for Beach Day with more room for activities! Again, no trip to San Diego is complete without a good old fashioned beach day! This year we've got a new spot dialed up with even more ways to experience a day at the beach. Surfing, stand up paddling, kyaking, and of course, THE JAM TENT!

You've never been to a Q & A like this before, we're so stoked for this new event! You've never been to a Q & A like this before, we're so stoked for this new event!

OUR STORY Q & A

New for this year! A Q & A unlike any that we’ve ever done before: we’re bringing few of our oldest and finest friends with us to help “remind us" of some of the "finer" moments in the history of the band. It'll be fun, hilarious, and emotional- full of stories from the early days.
