OC Weekly's annual Summer Guide is officially around the corner! And while this year's comic book edition of our sunny special issue is worth celebrating all on its own, we're going big this time around, presenting an all-day beach party in honor of the mag called Summerfest! Picture us putting our Weekly stamp on a sprawling water-front concert packed with food trucks, awesome vendors, kayaking and a full lineup of kick-ass bands. That includes this year's headliner, our local faves, The Colourist.
Fresh off of a rousing double weekend at Coachella, this is the band's one and only OC show this summer in anticipation of their 7″ vinyl release. They, along with a full lineup of great local acts, will perform at Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort and Marina in Newport Beach on June 9 from 12-5 p.m. Wanna go? Of course you do! For detailed info on the lineup and tickets, see below.
