The lineup for Beach Goth 2016 was just announced this morning. And once again, it is fire. The Growlers headline the fifth year of their the two-day festival, which is moving locations from the Observatory to Oak Canyon Park, Oct. 22-23 (also the location of this summer’s Day N Night Festival). Spearheaded by The Growlers (natch) the other headliners on the bill include Bon Iver and Justice (who are performing a DJ set). Also on the bill are festival favorites James Blake, King Krule, R.L. Grime, the Violent Femmes and many more.
One look at this poster reminds us once again that Observatory continues upping the ante with this fest, delivering an array of legendary acts (2 Live Crew?!) and sought after up and comers (Kali Uchis) and psych ward patients (Gucci Mane) and even metal (Brujeria, a favorite of our Mexican-in-Chief Gustavo Arellano) that take the event far outside the scope of a garden variety hipster fest. Also on the bill are a handful of OC staples ranging from ska heroes Reel Big Fish to T.S.O.L. and The Abigails. And do my eyes deceive me, or is that TLC on the bill?! Anyway, enough talking…definitely do your self a favor and check out the full lineup on the poster below. Tickets will be available at Friday at 10 a.m. on the festival’s website, www.beachgothfest.com.
