Surf City Blitz to hit Huntington Beach

If your life is a cross between punk music and motorcycles, boy do we have a festival for you. Introducing Huntington Beach's first Surf City Blitz: two full days of drag racing and hardcore hits from hometown faves like The Offspring, Social Distortion and more this upcoming October 27th and 28th – all on the sandy shores of Huntington State Beach. For the first time ever, racing meets raging festival weekend with SCB's Moto Beach Classic, a full-on drag race built on a dirt flat track in the sand presented by Roland Classic. Last year, the Moto Beach Classic was launched at Bolsa Chica State Beach to 5,000 drag racing enthusiasts; this year, the Indian Motorcycle's Super Hooligan Championship will take place right next to the water and the Main Stage, with SCB attendees able to view the action in a custom-built sand stadium. But, one race isn't all the bikes you get! Sprint racing will also be going down throughout the weekend, courtesy of BMW Motorcycles, as well as a mini road race Grand Prix in the parking lot, an art and bike show put on by Architects of Inspiration and an overwhelming amount of moto vendors around the arena. Once inside, you simply can't escape the stoke.

If the thrill of being surrounded by bikes isn't entertaining enough, let's talk lineup. As mentioned above, headlining Saturday and Sunday will be The Offspring and Social Distortion, but joining those two heavy hitters will be Pennywise, Rancid, Suicidal Tendencies, Bad Religion, Fear, Black Rebel Motorcycle Cub, Mad Caddies, TSOL, Snuff, Voodoo Glow Skulls, The Interrupters, The Wrecks, Aaron Lee Tasjan and many more. Blending the biggest and baddest names in ska and punk together into one massive event cannot go wrong. Plus, if you haven't heard the latest ska jam by The Interrupters, now is the time to do so.

On top of music and motocross, vegan and veggie-friendly food will be served, craft beer and cocktails will be flowing and various beach games will be scattered around the grounds with prizes for winners including VIP upgrades! Speaking of upgrades, weekend passes for this event start as low as $59.50 for general admission and $139.50 for weekend VIP. It's almost worth it to splurge, since VIP lands you at the most premium viewing spots for everything going down. Surf City Blitz is also an all ages fest, with children under 10 admitted free with a paid adult. For more information or to get your tickets now, visit
