With all the talk about the America's Cup coming to San Francisco, you can't help but want to get out on the water. Test your sea legs on a 125-foot yacht during Decks on Deck, a benefit featuring champion DJ Mix Master Mike, and revisit the other elements of hip hop at the USA Funkstyle Championship popping and locking battle or the Sky's the Limit tribute to Notorious B.I.G. featuring Goldynchyld and The Whooligan. Chill to afro-Cuban jazz sounds of the Omar Sosa Quintet or turn up the heat with the return of German industrial pyros Rammstein. Local rock is on display with indie standouts Weekend and international star DJ Benny Benassi is back behind the decks when his Electroman Tour stops at Ruby Skye with Trevor Simpson.
