Huntington State Beach, Huntington Beach, CA
Have you been catching our updates of waterside festivals like Sabroso Fest or Back to the Beach or Gnarlytown and wishing you could partake in such beach-centric music revelry? Well, you have another chance coming up this fall, with another festival coming to Huntington State Beach featuring ska / punk / alternative rock. On the Water is a new festival this year being presented by local rock and alternative station, 106.7 KROQ, and it will bring two days of oceanside jams to SoCal concert-goers this October 12 and 13.
As usual with these SoCal festivals, there will be a selection of craft foods and beers available. That’s pretty much become a prerequisite these days. Tickets are priced pretty expensively, though the 18+ age limits marks a departure from the more family-friendly festivals we’ve seen lately. Tickets are on sale now, so get yours today!
