The so-cal fest will also include Roland Sands presenting The Moto Beach Classic. It will include a dirt track on the sand for the first time ever featuring races, custom bikes, art, and drag racing for both days. More activities are to be announced at a later date. Roland Sands of Roland Sands Design, founder, and producer of The Moto Beach Classic says, “The Moto Beach Classic is coming back bigger than ever as the Super Hooligans join the Surf City Blitz this October!” He continues to say “It’s been a dream of mine to build a dirt track on the beach and we are making that happen with berm bleachers next to a massive stage with the sickest OC lineup of all time. The Offspring, Social D, Rancid, Pennywise, Bad Religion, Suicidal Tendencies…the list keeps going. It’s a moto lover’s dream with drag races, mini road race, bike show, moto inspired art and much more. This is the only event you have to be at in 2018!”
The festival will come shortly after the release of Suicidal Tendencies new album, slated to be released in Septemeber. It will be the band’s thirteenth studio album. Ben Weinman, the former guitarist of The Dillinger Escape Plan, will play with Social Distortion for a string of shows this month.
