The Offspring, Flogging Molly, Bad Religion lead Sabroso 2019 lineup

The Offspring, Flogging Molly, and Bad Religion are just some of the bands that will make their way to southern Orange County in early April for this year’s Sabroso Craft Beer, Taco, & Music Festival. On Monday (Jan. 28), festival organizers unveiled a rocking roster for the event’s sixth year.

Joining the aforementioned acts on this year’s list are the Descendents, Good Charlotte, Black Flag, Lagwagon, Strung Out, The Suicide Machines, D.I, Face to Face, Plague Vendor, Red City Radio, and Orange Blossom Special.

“Sabroso is now a WEEKEND of our favorite things: tacos, craft beer, and great bands!” says Dexter Holland of The Offspring in a press statement about this year’s event.

“We couldn’t ask for a more perfect lineup and a more perfect location inside of California State Parks…The Offspring, Flogging Molly, Bad Religion, Descendents, Black Flag, and all of the other great acts we have over the weekend… it really doesn’t get better than this,” says Synergy Global Entertainment and Sabroso co-producer John Reese.

“Between the music, unlimited craft beer tastings, tacos, wrestling and more, Sabroso is a can’t miss weekend!”

Like with past years, attendees will get the opportunity to get their grub on with unlimited tastings of gourmet tacos and over 150 craft beers.

In addition to the rocking bands that are set to perform, attendees will also get to see some real Lucha Libre-style wrestling. Renowned Mexico City luchador Cesar Gonzalez (Silver King) will return to Sabroso this year to defend his 2018 title of “King of the Ring.”

But if bands, food, and wrestling aren’t your thing, then maybe the 9th Annual Gringo Bandito Chronic Tacos Challenge may tickle your fancy. Professional eaters from around the world will compete for cash prizes and the highly coveted title of Chronic Tacos Eating Champion.

If you’re wondering how Sabroso will manage to fit all this excitement into one day, you don’t have to wonder any longer. This year will mark the first time the festival has expanded from one day to two.

Sabroso Craft Beer, Taco & Music Festival will return to its home of Doheny State Beach in Dana Point, California during the weekend of April 6-7.

Tickets go on sale this Friday, Feb. 1, at 10 a.m. PT.

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Doheny State Beach Interpretive Association (DSBIA). The non-profit association, in conjunction with Doheny State Beach, is dedicated to the protection of the park’s beaches, facilities, marine refuge as well as its historical, cultural, and social stories.

In 2017, they came out with ‘Believer,’ ‘Thunder,’ ‘Whatever It Takes’ and ‘Natural.’ We’re glad to have them back,” adds Graham.

In total over 80 acts will take over one of six stages during the three-day event.
