The fourth annual 91X Presents BeerX is set for Saturday, June 23, once again returning to San Diego, CA’s picturesque Waterfront Park. This year’s BeerX brings Slightly Stoopid‘s “School’s Out For Summer Tour” to their hometown. The 2018 BeerX music lineup features Slightly Stoopid, Stick Figure, Pepper, Fishbone (original lineup), Ethan Tucker Band and Marujah. BeerX will offer complimentary craft beer tastings for those 21 and up, with an extensive craft beer lineup highlighting some of Southern California’s top breweries, as well as local food selections.
Tickets for 91X Presents BeerX go on sale Friday, April 6 at 10:00 AM PT at www.BeerXSanDiego.com
Note: All tickets for those 21+ include craft beer tasting until 4:00 PM and access to live music.
Slightly Stoopid kick off their School’s Out For Summer 2018 Tour (with special guests Stick Figure and Pepper) in June and are excited to headline 91X Presents BeerX.
Slightly Stoopid’s Miles Doughty said, “Stoked to be playing 91X’s BeerX this year! School’s out for Summer, so bring on the music, good beers and blue skies at Waterfront Park. Hometown hangout, butawatchout!“
“There’s no such thing as a bad beer, just some taste better than others, ha! Can’t wait to taste ‘em all and rock with our SD Ohana,” said Pepper’s Yesod Williams.
Norwood Fisher, bass player and founding member of Fishbone, said, “I’m filled with gratitude that life’s course has brought us to the reunification of the classic Fishbone lineup! We all recognize that there was a time when it seemed so unlikely that we’d reach this point, and that fuels a personal excitement when we’re hitting the stage. It’s ultra-appropriate that we’re reconnecting with our friends at 91X. 91X was there for us at the earliest stages of our career, and it’s bad ass that we can party with them now! Now, add to that the fact that the good homies Slightly Stoopid are topping the bill!?!? Sounds like some hell-raising is in order for sure!”
91X Program Director Garett Michaels said, “Last year’s BeerX was so great, I wasn’t sure we’d be able to come up with an artist lineup that would compare. But, I think we may have topped it, and I couldn’t be more stoked about what we’ve curated. There’s nothing better than a summer day next to San Diego Bay, with great music, tasty food, and an incredible group of participating breweries. I can’t wait for June 23rd to arrive. See you at Waterfront Park!”
Festival co-producer Cameron Collins of Brew Ha Ha Productions said, “BeerX took San Diego by storm last year with an amazing lineup of bands and an impressive list of breweries from San Diego and beyond! This year, we have assembled even more incredible breweries who will be showcasing their absolute BEST at BeerX! San Diego is famous around the world for its beer and this festival is a perfect representation of what San Diego and Southern California have to offer!”
