Last year, Long Beach saw an inaugural music festival take place downtown that went well enough that it’s returned for a second year. The Music Tastes Good 2017 lineup has arrived and it’s building on what made it a success in 2016.
Headlining this year’s festival are two indie rock legends — Ween and Sleater-Kinney. The festival takes place September 30 and October 1.
Other acts on the bill include Ride, Charles Bradley and His Extraordinaires, Alvvays, Los Lobos, of Montreal, Dr. Octagon, !!! (Chk chk chk), Big Freedia, Digable Planets, Kate Tempest (who had to pull out last year), Peaches, Joyce Manor, and many more.
The festival also features a heavy culinary aspect, with local chefs from SoCal and chefs from New Orleans slated to serve high-quality cuisine.
The festival also maeks the one-year anniversary of the unfortunate passing of founder Josh Fischel, who passed just after last year’s festival following a battle with liver disease.
We were at the inaugural year of the festival and enjoyed catching acts like Warpaint, Dr. Dog, and several others in the awesome downtown Long Beach city blocks.
Tickets go on sale Friday, May 12.
