It’s been several years since 104.3 The Shark invaded the air waves of South Florida and by the looks of how many artists have made their way down south, they are definitely staying true to their goal of bringing in the biggest rock musicians to one of the most forgotten parts of the country. After spending much of the week dropping hints on their social media accounts in the form of stitching art, South Florida’s only rock radio station announced their much-anticipated lineup for the 2018 incarnation of their annual Sharkwrecked at the Riptide Music Festival.
On Friday (Sept. 7), during their morning show “The Big Mistake,” hosts Ashley O. and Spanish unveiled the complete list of artists who will descend on South Florida during the first week of December for the festival. Day one will primarily feature artists who are currently finding homes on the rock and alternative radio charts.
Headlining the first day of the event will Panic! at the Disco, who earlier this summer unleashed not only their sixth studio Pray for the Wicked by also hit the touring circuit for a massive North American tour. Also taking the stage during the first night of the two-day event will be Sublime with Rome, Young the Giant, Blue October, Cold War Kids, lovelytheband, and Shipwrecked alums the Dirty Heads and Robert DeLong.
While day one’s lineup primarily focuses on artists who are currently appealing to the general masses, day two will feature a more throwback-centric lineup with acts like 311, LIVE, Third Eye Blind, Collective Soul, Sugar Ray, Everclear, and newly added Matt and Kim.
Pre-sale tickets for members of the station’s Chum Club will go on sale beginning next Wednesday, Sept. 12, at 10 a.m. local time and conclude on Thursday, Sept. 13, at 10 p.m. local time. After that, general ticket sales will begin.
Earlier in the month, the radio station revealed that the one-day event geared towards the younger rock fans had expanded to two days.
Sharkwrecked at the Riptide Music Festival will return to its home of Fort Lauderdale Beach in Fort Lauderdale, Florida during the weekend of Dec. 1-2.
