Head to Huntington State Beach on April 28 & 29 for KROQ's Back to the Beach Festival! This two-day event on the beach is hosted by KROQ, Travis Barker, and John Feldmann and features some of the top ska and reggae rock groups around. Check out the set schedule below!
Travis & Feldy
The festival was inspired by the early Orange County ska music scene, influenced by bands like Fishbone and Huntington Beach locals, The Aquabats. It's a blast to ska's 1990s past, before Travis Barker rose to fame with the Blink-182. Hosts Barker and John Feldmann, aka "Feldy," will share the stage during Goldfinger's set on Sunday.
Don't just show up for the music — Back to the Beach is an all-day festival with food, drinks, vendors, and games for all ages. Before the show, enjoy beers, cocktails, and plates for all palettes (including vegetarians and vegans). Doors open at noon, so there's plenty of time for fun and food!
If you have kids, don't worry! Little ones under 10 get in free with paid adult admission. They will love the Lil' Punk Kids Zone, a fun, safe play area for kids under 10 accompanied by an adult. The Kids Zone will include a Kids DJ, activities by Sea Shepard, PETA, face painting, beach games, a pool with mermaids, arts and crafts, healthy snacks, a tented shade zone, and clean bathrooms.
The games aren't only for kids. Adults can play with the giant Jenga set on the sand, or show off their cornhole skills right on the beach. Team up with your friends for chances to win prizes and maybe even a VIP upgrade!
Don't forget to bring your wallet for some exclusive Back to the Beach merchandise.
One-day general admission: $59.50
Weekend general admission: $99.50
