Huntington Beach, Calif. — June 22, 2023 — Visit Huntington Beach (VHB), the official destination marketing organization of Huntington Beach, Calif., is celebrating International Surf Music Month with the launch of three Spotify® playlists that each represent a different aspect of Surf City USA®.

The Spotify playlists feature music across decades and genres, including iconic surf music, modern pop and rock. The playlists were created by VHB so that locals and visitors will have music to accompany any adventure they’re planning in Huntington Beach.

Surf music has been an integral part of the Surf City USA culture for many decades. The Surfin’ Sundays Concert Series presented by the Huntington Beach International Surfing Museum is celebrating its 25th anniversary of live music at Pier Plaza this year. The family-friendly and free-to-attend concerts are taking place on select weekends through October 2023.

“Surfing and music bring people from all walks of life together,” shared Kelly Miller, president & CEO, VHB. “When residents and visitors create lasting memories in Surf City USA, we hope that our playlists will serve as the soundtrack.”

Three Spotify playlists are now available:

  • Huntington Beach Swell: Classic Surf Tunes: The sound is heavily influenced by the surfing lifestyle and aims to create a vibrant and exciting atmosphere reminiscent of riding waves. Surf music is an energetic and upbeat genre that emerged in Southern California.

  • Huntington Beach Blanket Bingo: Inspired by summer, romance, beach parties and youthful adventures, this collection offers nostalgic and lively tunes to transport listeners back to the sun-soaked Huntington Beaches of the 50's.

  • Huntington Harbour Smooth Sail: Yacht Rock Hits: Join us on our luxurious and relaxed yacht while we evoke images of sailing and coastal living.

New playlists will be released periodically throughout the rest of the year. To access the playlists, click here.
