NOFX + Bad Religion Lead Inaugural Ye Scallywag! Festival
Nothing says "scallywag" like a festival full of over 100 craft breweries, wine, food and, of course, a little bit of punk rock! Longstanding punk icons NOFX and Bad Religion will lead the charge at the first annual Ye Scallywag! festival at the Waterfront Park in San Diego, Calif., on Oct. 22.
With music set to begin at noon, attendees will be treated to performances not only from NOFX and Bad Religion, but Goldfinger, Against Me!, Reel Big Fish and the new band featuring Prophets of Rage / Rage Against the Machine bassist Tim Commerford called Wakrat. Speaking about his excitement, Fat Mike said, “When I started NOFX in 1983 I dreamed of being a scallywag one day, at least by the time I was 50. Well, not only am I a scallywag, but I'm also playing the Scallywag festival! Ps. What's a scallywag? Is that like being a pirate?”
"Scallywag! will be unlike any legitimate craft beer or wine event ever produced,” began Ye Scallywag! co-producer Cameron Collins of Brew Ha Ha Productions. “We are bringing in some of the most sought after and award winning breweries in the country as well as some incredible wineries from Paso Robles, the Napa Valley, Central Coast and beyond all set to the music of artists like Bad Religion. We’ve really got something special here!”
Fans will be able to enjoy early entry and general admission beer and wine tastings stretching between 11AM (12PM for general admission) and 4PM. From there, select breweries and wineries will be offering drinks for purchase rather than just merely tasting. Burning Shed, Bottle Logic, Clown Shoes, Fall Brewing, Mikkeller SD and Modern Times breweries will all be in attendance. As for the wine, Rebel Coast, William Hill, Maggio, Old Soul, Chronic Cellars and Dry Creek will all be represented on site.
Pre-sale tickets will be on sale tomorrow (Aug. 30) while general admission tickets will be made available on Friday, Sept. 10 at 10AM PT. Additional options include early entry, VIP lounge along with early entry and backstage VIP. Additional ticket information can be found here.
