BeachLife Festival - 2022 lineup

BeachLife Festival //
Seaside Lagoon – Redondo Beach, CA
May 13th-15th, 2022 //

The weather outside might be a little chilly right now, but you know what that means? We’re only a few months away from festival season!

Here in California, there has already been plenty of lineup announcements over the past six weeks with Smokin Grooves, This Ain’t No Picnic, Primavera Sound LA, CRSSD and BottleRock all putting out their individual rosters dating from early March to late August. Now, it’s BeachLife Festival’s turn.

The three-day event moved to September in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but it’s back to its normal month of May this year with plenty to get excited about. Leading the fest’s third installment will be Weezer and 311 as co-headliners on Friday while The Smashing Pumpkins and Steve Miller Band will have their own days — Saturday and Sunday, respectively — to shine even after the sun dips into the Pacific Ocean.

If all or some of those names hitting the stage at Seaside Lagoon in Redondo Beach don’t exactly wow you though, don’t stop reading just yet.

BeachLife, which leans heavily in the direction of rock ‘n’ roll and reggae but also incorporates jam, funk and punk acts, has plenty of other talent booked for 2022. Black Pumas, Vance Joy, Sheryl Crow, Stone Temple Pilots and Lord Huron anchor an impressive undercard, but they aren’t the only ones deserving of being mentioned with Cold War Kids, Capital Cities, UB40 feat. Ali Campbell, Milky Chance, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, Cannons, Matisyahu, The Allman Betts Band (made up of Devon Allman, Duane Betts and Berry Duane Oakley), Atlas Genius, Sugar Ray, Ozomatli and more on the bill. Check out the poster above for the rest of the scheduled artists and bands.

Want to buy tickets? They’re already on sale here! Three-day GA and GA+ passes can be purchased for $419 or $449, and VIP is available for $899 as well as single-day tickets for $159 (GA), $189 (GA+) and $349 (VIP). And if you’re really looking to throw down some cash, there’s always the three-day Captain’s pass for $2,999 or $1,250 (single-day) so don’t miss the boat on securing your admission to a weekend of live music on the beach before it’s too late.

Arroyo Seco Weekend drops inaugural lineup led by Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Mumford & Sons

Arroyo Seco Weekend

Arroyo Seco Weekend //
Brookside at the Rose Bowl – Pasadena, CA
June 24th-25th, 2017 //

For the past few years, there’s been talk about the city of Pasadena hosting a multi-day music festival near the historic Rose Bowl. Shaun White’s snowboard/music festival Air + Style was the first to give it a shot (read our review here) back in 2015, but after experiencing some noise issues, it moved to downtown LA the following year and has continued to call Exposition Park its home.

Now, those rumors have become a reality with Goldenvoice announcing the inaugural lineup for Arroyo Seco Weekend. Coming to “the shady oaks and parkland” of Brookside at the Rose Bowl in late June, the two-day festival will feature three stages of live music with Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers and Mumford & Sons topping the bill. But maybe even more impressive is the undercard, which includes Alabama Shakes, Weezer, The Meters, The Shins, Dawes, Fitz & the Tantrums, Live, Andrew Bird, Broken Social Scene, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, Charles Bradley & The Extraordinaires, Galactic and more. Check out the poster above for the rest of the lineup.

In addition to all the live music, there will be curated menus from LA’s celebrated restaurants and chefs, including Union’s Bruce Kalman, Sweetfin Poke’s Dakota Weiss, Rose Cafe’s Jason Neroni, Broken Spanish’s Ray Garcia, Sotto’s Steve Samson and République’s Walter Matzke. Free day parking and a bike valet will be available for festivalgoers, and those looking to take public transit to the festival will have easy access to the Metro Gold Line.

Weekend passes and single-day tickets can be purchased here for $225 and $125, respectively, starting this Monday, March 20th at 11 a.m. PT. VIP passes will also be sold at a price of $399 and $225, with weekend preferred parking available for $50.

SF Show of the Week // GO4FREE to Washed Out (DJ set) at Mezzanine 9/17 (THUR)

Washed OutWritten by Nik Crossman //

TBD Fest Kick-Off PartyWashed Out with Touch Sensitive, Prince Fox //
Mezzanine – San Francisco
September 17th, 2015 //

Born into rural America in the early 80’s, Ernest Greene (aka Washed Out) initially pursued a life of books and research with a Masters of Library and Information Science. Unable to land a job after graduation, Greene moved back in with his parents in Perry, Ga., and began making music in his bedroom. While developing his nostalgic sound, which he later packaged under the moniker Washed Out, Greene also worked on dance-pop songs with a group from South Carolina appropriately named Bedroom.

Introducing his sound as Washed Out in 2009 with the release of his first EP Life of Leisure, Greene received solid feedback from the music community that brought him to perform at Pitchfork Music Festival in 2010. Described as “nostalgic, hypnotic bedroom electro-disco pop”, Washed Out’s unique sound landed him with Sub Pop Records, and his single “Feel It All Around” was picked in 2011 as the theme song for the satirical sketch comedy television series “Portlandia” on IFC.

 

As a one-man, hypno-pop home-studio producer, Greene plays keyboards, a guitar and a piano before mixing it together on a computer. Without the help of a touring band, Washed Out live performances resemble a DJ set with Greene singing over the top of the music while re-arranging it with live keyboards to keep the tempo up and “make it as fun as possible.”

This Thursday, Greene will bring his chillwave/hipster sound to Mezzanine for TBD Fest Kick-Off Party presented by Beautiful Buzzz with Touch Sensitive and Prince Fox providing support. You can buy tickets for $25, or you could win a pair of tickets by registering your full name and email below.

Contest ends this Thursday at 3 p.m.
