I took my daughter and her friend to the event. We all had a blast. We enjoyed the variety of music and the venue was perfect. The food was good....though ridiculously expensive.

No signs at the entrance and nobody to explain the situation. We laughed and mocked the lack of a plan. We made it in -but come on, do the homework.
BTW... Feels like there was lots of over serving.
The music was great, loved the tunes and the...continued

The Jameson booth was way too slow to get a drink other than beer. Competition would have been a good idea

The performances were great! Mutemath, Shiny Toy Guns, and of course, DEVO were all excellent -- great energy, great crowd. Definitely worth the half-off price on Goldstar for the concert alone. The food was not very good. Oysters were...continued

Not our cup of tea, attended to accompany our 30-something son. Guiness was $8 per cup, a little steep. Oysters were briney and fresh, a must. Peaceful crowd.

I read some reviews that complained of long lines for everything, but we found the opposite. Reasonable prices for this kind of event. The oysters were great. Devo was the headliner--they played for more than an hour. My only problem with the...continued

Perfect Sat in SF. Weather was amazing, vendors were plentiful, and DEVO was amazing. Still don't know how I hadn't heard of this until the 14th round.

DEVO was an excellent choice to headline this year's Oysterfest. I had a great time pogoing to classics like "Uncontrollable Urge". They did an excellent job on the sound and the setting was perfect. I would love to see more outdoor music...continued

Long day with little to do. No shuck and eat contest as advertised...nobody knew what I was talking about when I asked. No information booth. Oysters were ridiculously small and not fresh...central shuckers and sat out in sun for who knows how...continued

My first time to the Oysterfest was a great experience! We went to see DEVO and had a blast lounging on the grass, eating oysters and drinking beers. Besides the fun show DEVO out on the event was well organized. Glad that Goldstar had it's own...continued

Started an hour late due to someone who works for the festival had all the scanners and showed up late or something. But the oysters were yummy and the beer, entertainment and the beautiful made it all better! Good times.

The admission, food and beer was way overpriced. The band sounds like a bad 80s rock band (I listen to rock), but I couldnt tolerate it.

The event was fun and the bands were great. There were a few minuses, There needs to be better signages for people who purchase goldstar, I saw many people circling the event. Even staff really didn't seem to know what was going on. Beer prices...continued

The oysters were a bit overpriced (for an oyster-themed festival) and the music was OK. I'd definitely go again, but only at the goldstar price -- anything over 30 bucks for this is a crime.
