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.

The full lineup for the 2019 Sabroso Craft Beer, Taco & Music Festival can be found below.

Godsmack, Taking Back Sunday, Five Finger Death Punch, and Shinedown are just some of the acts who will head to Ohio this summer for the second annual INKCARCERATION Music and Tattoo Festival. On Tuesday (Jan. 15), festival organizers unveiled the rock-centric roster for this year’s event.

Joining the aforementioned acts on the bill are +LIVE+, Seether, Skillet, I Prevail, Starset, Motionless in White, Red Sun Rising, Fozzy, Buckcherry, POD, Andrew W.K., the Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, and more. In total, over 30 bands will take over one of two stages throughout the weekend-long festivities.

In addition to the rocking lineup, the music festival will also include over 70 booths of local and regional tattoo artists. The list of tattoo artists who will be attending this year’s event can be found here. For those who are interested in getting a tattoo during the three-day event, all you need to do is select the artist you would like to work with and schedule an appointment. Simple as that.

If music and tattoos weren’t enough to get you excited, organizers also revealed that attendees can experience Escape From Blood Prison, the annual Halloween haunted house attraction hosted at the Ohio State Reformatory during the months of September, October, and November. This year, the attraction will give attendees the opportunity to experience the frights and sights in early July.

“It’s an honor to be able to open the doors of Blood Prison a couple of months early and give the guests of INKCARCERATION a few scares in July! The warden, his family and the Blood Prison inmates are all excited to meet the fans at INKCARCERATION,” says Vic Amesquita, manager of Blood Prison.

But music, tattoos, and haunted houses are not the only chilling attractions INKCARCERATION will offer this year. Organizers also revealed that attendees can take part in self-guided tours of the historic Ohio State Reformatory, home of the “Shawshank Prison,” during the music festival. According to the festival’s website, the complete, immersive tour should take roughly an hour and a half, so it may be wise to plan accordingly.

“Building off such a strong inaugural year, we are so stoked to give our fans even more in year two,” begins a press statement from the music festival’s promoters.

“With Billboard chart-topping bands such as Shinedown, Godsmack and Five Finger Death Punch leading the way, tattoo artists from around the globe, and the historic backdrop of the haunted Shawshank Prison, INKCARCERATION 2019 will be the don’t miss rock event of the summer in the Midwest!”

INKCARCERATION 2019 will take place at the Ohio State Reformatory in Mansfield, Ohio during the weekend of July 12-14. Tickets for the music festival are currently available here.
