KROQ Presents: Back to the Beach Festival 2018

Huntington State Beach, Huntington Beach, CA

Happy Monday!  We just came off a weekend in which we covered a really rad beer, food, and rock festival in the form of Sabroso Fest, which we'll be posting an update about tomorrow.  But if you're sitting there, thinking to yourself, "Wow, I wish I had gone to a really rad beer, food, and rock festival this weekend," you're in luck! In a few weekends, you'll have the chance to do so!

That's because on the last weekend of this month, at Huntington Beach, the inaugural Back to the Beach Festival will be happening across not one but two days.  Featuring a ton of great rock, punk, reggae, and ska bands, plus some craft beer, a carnival zone, and some great food.  It's a family-friendly event too--kids 9 and under will get in for free when accompanied by an adult--but fans who grew up on 90s and early 2000s rock and alternative will enjoy the line-up too.

Tickets are still quite available, so head over and purchase some now, if you're a fan of booze, eats, and great music!  We're definitely fans of this new influx of food and drink and music festivals permeating Southern California, and no doubt, this will bring a great time for attendees too.

John “Feldy” Feldmann of Goldfinger, co-producer of Back To The Beach, explains, “The inception of the idea of a ska festival turned into reality from one festival (Punk In Drublic) to another! I grew up on ska, so this has been my dream! Now I get to do it with one of my best friends, Travis Barker (The Aquabats). 2 OG rude boys getting back to our roots!”

"With such an incredible ska-influenced lineup, this is the dream show for every Southern California music fan from 1995 to today. Travis Barker and John Feldmann put in a lot of hard work with me to get this right and we think we accomplished our goal. We have to thank California State Parks for letting us do this at the most unbelievable venue on the sand at the most popular beach on Earth…Huntington State Beach. So many attractions, great food and drink... A CAN’T MISS WEEKEND," states John ReeseBack To The Beach Producer and President of SGE, Inc.

Reese continues, “We wanted to create a festival for the entire family. The Lil' Punk Kid Zone will offer everything from bounce houses and carnival games of chance to a sandcastle demolition...it’s going to be a really fun day at the beach for all ages.”

Back To The Beach will feature a carnival midway, beach games, the Lil' Punk Kid Zone, vegan food, craft beer and cocktails, and more.
