Reliving the Golden Era of Punk and Ska
It was no accident that Huntington Beach ended up as the final location for the Back to the Beach Festival. The broader locale of Orange County is the birthplace of many beloved bands from the ‘80s, ‘90s, and early 2000s. Third-wave ska and punk represent so much of Huntington Beach’s history, and the festival has resurrected much of that past. It’s not so bad that attendees get great views of the Pacific Ocean throughout the event grounds as well.
The bands who perform are well loved by the music fans who regularly attend Back to the Beach. Reel Big Fish, Less than Jake, the Used, and Story of the Year are a few of the notable performers to have made an appearance. Often times the artists treat audiences to special collaboration performances where incredible, spontaneous jam sessions occur on stage. One year, Less Than Jake, Reel Big Fish, the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, and John Feldman teamed up for an exciting display of fun and talent.
There are also all of the fun normal beach activities available for attendees. Bring a blanket and relax seaside. Kids will have fun too. Children under ten get in for free, and they have access to the “Lil’ Punk Kidzone” which is an all-inclusive area for kids with healthy foods options. In between sets, explore the surrounding area whether to shop, have coffee, or grab a bite to eat.
