Pier 70 is San Francisco's new up and coming area. Decades ago this was a busy place where ships have been built as early as late 1800s. During World War II more than 18,000 workers built ships. The last decades the area was just rusting and falling apart. Now it is getting converted into a new bustling place with shops, art, housing, parks and more. It will take years to complete.
Parts of Pier 70 are though ready for events, like a big Super Bowl 50 concert weekend sponsored by DirecTV and Pepsi. The Dave Matthews Band will kick off the event on Thursday, Feb. 4. On Friday, Pharrell Williams will take to the stage.
The performer for Saturday night has not yet been announced.
"Since Super Bowl 50 is such a historic occasion, we wanted to create a disruptive and engaging experience that would match our customers' excitement for the big game," said Adam Harter, Vice President, Cultural Connections, PepsiCo. "Pepsi and DIRECTV are both respected for providing premier entertainment for fans, serving up unique pop culture moments around the Super Bowl. This partnership will be an organic way of bringing our collective vision to life."
