If you were ever referred to as a scallywag as a kid, and loved it, there might be a way for you to continue to be one as an adult. On Monday (Aug. 29), Synergy Global Energy, Brew Ha Ha Productions, and radio stations 91X and KFM-BFM announced the first ever Ye Scallywag! festival. The one-day, California-based event will feature performances by NOFX, Against Me!, and Bad Religion while also giving attendees a large array of craft beer, wine, and food.
“Scallywag! will be unlike any legitimate craft beer or wine event ever produced,” explains 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!”
“Ye Scallywag! will be the perfect San Diego event to make one truly grateful for this wondrous California lifestyle,” adds 91X’s Halloran. “The craftiness of the beer, wine, food, and bands will prove that indeed, San Diego has the best. I am looking forward to an amazing day.”
Mirroring their sentiments, Fat Mike of NOFX adds: “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?”
Ye Scallywag! is set to take place on Saturday, Oct. 22, at Waterfront Park in San Diego, CA. The event will feature over 100 craft breweries and artisan wineries while the music portion of the event will kick off at noon. All tickets include beer and wine tasting and access to the BMW of Escondido Main Stage for live music.
Pre-sales for the event will begin on Tuesday, Aug. 30 and will end on Thursday, Sept. 1. General ticket sales will then begin on Friday, Sept. 2 at 10 a.m. PST. As noted on the website, the one-day music festival is for those who are 21 and over. For more information about Ye Scallywag!, head on over to their website here.
