The Offspring + Social Distortion to Headline Surf City Blitz Fest This Fall
Punk rock and world-class motorcycle racing; it's a match made in spikes and leather heaven. Enter the inaugural Surf City Blitz, which debuts in Southern California this fall with a stacked bill including The Offspring, Social Distortion, Suicidal Tendencies and Bad Religion to name just a few of the iconic acts playing the two-day fest. Check out the lineup on the poster below.
Taking place Oct. 27 and 28 at Huntington State Beach along the Pacific Coast Highway with a view of the Pacific Ocean, Surf City Blitz is one of the most exciting destination festivals to come along in some time. And to make the event even sweeter, the second annual Moto Beach Classic will be combining with the fest, featuring Super Hooligan street bike flat track racing, drag and mini bike racing, art and custom motorcycles. It will feature a dirt track on the sand for the first time ever and two days of Super Hooligan flat track racing.
“This is an incredible line-up of bands over two days, and combined with Roland Sand’s Moto Beach Classic, this is going to be an awesome show," says Social D. frontman Mike Ness in a statement. "To be a part of an event like this that’s never been done before is pretty cool. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”
“Can't wait to hang out on the beach with some of our SoCal punk friends and idols when we play Surf City Blitz,” adds The Offspring frontman Dexter Holland.
The spacious grounds at Huntington State Beach will include an abundance of shaded areas for patrons and a spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean from throughout the site, along with beach games and activities, photo ops, and a number of other attractions. Doors open at Noon each day and the festival is open to all ages.
