Festival attendees are encouraged to “Like Totally” geek-out in their best spandex, big hair 80’s themed attire and enter in on the best dressed costume contest, held during the festival. Fest goers can expect some sunshine, sand-in-the-toes, an ocean breeze and evening stars, along with 80’s chart-topping artists that will take you right back to the good times of youthful kinship, first loves and epic beach parties. It’s all in the name of good-fun.
“We are super excited about this festival and are bringing out the original founding artists with these bands to perform their biggest hits for robust, full sets on Mother’s Day weekend. We felt it’s a perfect way to spend the day with family and friends – both old and new. The day will be righteous and deliver all the fun and great music the 80’s had to offer,” says Scott Tucker – Festival Producer.
The event is hosted by notable alumni DJ’s of KROQ like Richard Blade, Jed the Fish, Freddie Snakeskin, Huntington Beach’s own Rockin’ Fig and Jimmy Alvarez. The DJ hosts will crank up the festivities with the best the 80’s has to deliver, along with many giveaways and take homes.
