Guster returns to Portland, Maine from August 9-11, 2019 for their third annual On The Ocean Weekend.

The main event will be taking place at Thompson’s Point on Saturday August 10th and feature two sets from the band, including a 20th anniversary Lost And Gone Forever full album set. Guster will be joined at Thompson’s Point by Rubblebucket, Kat Wright, Tall Heights and Portland’s Weakened Friends. Saturday will also include a Joe’s Place stage with performances from former Guster member Joe Pisapia, Spicy V’s Hot Sauce Contest (in partnership with Vermont’s Butterfly Bakery), a lobster bake, food trucks, family games and more.

Saturday night’s festivities at Thompson’s Point will be capped off with an afterparty at Halo at the Point featuring amazing internationally-acclaimed EDM supergroup PIPPI who will be making their first ever amazing public appearance.

Guster will be kicking off the weekend with an intimate acoustic concert on Friday night at Portland’s First Parish and rounding out the weekend on Sunday with events across Portland including a Reverb service project, an island bike ride, and a storytellers event featuring Guster drummer Brian Rosenworcel. Rosenworcel has been documenting Guster’s touring exploits since 1999 in his road journal and this event will feature him sharing the stage with Guster fans in a Moth-like setting.

Following on the success of 2018’s Big Friendly Pale Ale, Guster will be teaming up with Maine-based brewery Mast Landing once again for a limited edition On The Ocean beer. The custom brew will launch on Friday August 9th and be available throughout Portland all weekend.

Tickets for Saturday’s concert at Thompson’s Point and Friday night’s acoustic concert at First Parish go on sale Friday April 19th at 10AM EST on Ticketmaster.

Stay tuned to for On The Ocean Weekend updates.


It wouldn’t be On The Ocean weekend without a lobster bake at Thompson’s Point. This year’s bake will be happening in an area along the Thompson’s Point shoreline that we’re calling the Lobster Lounge. In addition to hosting the lobster bake, the Lobster Lounge will have dedicated bartenders and bathrooms which attendees will have access to during their seating and later in the evening.

This year’s menu includes includes a 1 ¼ LB lobster, ½ LB of clams or mussels, potato, corn on the cob, homemade coleslaw, fresh baked bread, iced tea + lemonade and an On The Ocean lobster bib.

We’re hosting two seatings at 3:30PM and 5PM. Space is limited so reserve your spot today. Cost: $75

THE FINE PRINT: Seating times cannot be changed so make sure that you reserve the same time as your friends. All lobster bake tickets will be sold in advance. You must have a August 10th concert ticket to attend the lobster bake. A lobster bake ticket does not include an August 10th concert ticket Thompson’s Point concert ticket.
