By Marissa Kraines

This year’s, Dreamforce is going to rock, with a KILLER Dreamfest.

The moment that we have all been waiting for happens on Thursday evening when attendees ascend upon Pier 70 in the Dogpatch to experience an all-star musical lineup including Foo Fighters, The Killers, and Gary Clark Jr.!

Location: Pier 70

Rooted deep in history, set among the old shipyards of San Francisco, unique in raw beauty, the buildings of Pier 70 evoke images of a bygone era and stir the imagination. Rustic exteriors, massive steel beams inside, these buildings are now being re-purposed for one-of-a-kind events, like the Dreamforce Dreamfest.

And make sure to come hungry! We’ll have delicious food and beverages available at every stage.

Big Time Bands

We are excited to welcome Foo Fighters, The Killers, and Gary Clark Jr. to the Dreamfest!

While most are familiar with the Foo Fighters and The Killers, but what do you know about Gary Clark Jr.? Get this: he is a guitar prodigy, a Grammy winner, and will be releasing his 4th album, The Story of Sonny Boy Slim, just days before his Dreamforce performance, on September 11th. Get psyched to experience his musical performance, influenced by blues, jazz, soul, country, as well as hip-hop. You don’t want to miss Clark’s musical trademarks: distorted guitar sound and smooth vocal style — compared to guitar icons like Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan. His playing is a powerful and inspired mix of blues roots with contemporary soul and hip-hop, and when he’s rolling at his best, Gary Clark, Jr. shows us what the blues sounds like in the 21st Century. Don’t miss one of the best performers I have ever seen.

Key Tips for the Dreamforce Dreamfest

Hear more about the Dreamfest from Stacey Kashubeck, Director, Strategic Events

TOP TIP! If you have a favorite band, go there first. But don’t worry, we will be showing every performance on viewing screens throughout the venue.

TIP 1: Bring your conference badge — this is your ticket to the event! Full conference credentials (card, holder and all) are required for entry.

TIP 2: Bring your ID. California Law requires that bartenders check your ID if you are fortunate to look under 30.

TIP 3: DON’T bring your laptop, backpack or selfie stick! Attendees are strongly encouraged to return to their hotels to drop off valuables prior to boarding the Dreamfest Shuttles. We are expecting a large turnout and will not have coat check services available at Pier 70.

TIP 4: Dress warmly, bring layers and wear comfortable shoes. The Dreamfest takes place outdoors on the water at Pier 70. Be sure to bring layers as the fog can roll in, making for a cool San Francisco evening!

TIP 5: Transportation options are available.

  • Shuttles will be provided from Moscone and all Dreamforce contracted hotels to Pier 70, departing at 6:45pm.
  • Public transportation is another easy way to get to Pier 70. Take the Muni T-Line to the 23rd Street Station where you will be directed to the Dreamfest entrance.
  • Ubers and taxis are required to drop all guests off at 23rd and Illinois Streets. Guests will be directed to the Dreamfest entrance 1 block away.
  • Parking and bike valets are not available in the neighborhood. Street closures will be in effect to accommodate event transportation plans.

TIP 6: Have an Expo+ Pass and want to attend Dreamfest? Please visit The Concert for Kids website to see how you can purchase a ticket while supporting a great cause. Limited availability.
