Rancid Headline Inaugural The Bash Music + Craft Beer Traveling Festival
Rancid can throw a bash like no one, so they make perfect sense to headline the inaugural run of The Bash music and craft beer traveling festival. The punk icons will be hitting the road for the seven-stop festival, which will take place during May and June.
Rancid have teamed up with SGE and craft beer event production powerhouse Brew Ha Ha Productions to launch the tour which will feature a core lineup of Rancid, Pennywise (excluding Phoenix), Suicidal Tendencies and L7, along with The Mighty Mighty Bosstones (Phoenix only), H20, Madball, Noi!se and Sharp Shock on select dates.
Meanwhile, there will be tastings at the shows, taking care of the craft beer portion of the festival stops, with over 100 different craft beers available to those attending. Rancid will debut their own craft beer, Ska Brewing's Brewstomper Golden Ale, during the run.
Tim Armstrong of Rancid says, “I’m looking forward to playing with some of my favorite bands in the world. Pennywise, Suicidal Tendencies, L7, and more. We look forward to seeing everyone out at The Bash!”
John Reese, CEO of Synergy Global Entertainment and co-producer of The Bash adds, “I am a massive fan of these bands, and the chance to launch this event with Rancid is really exciting for SGE. The band has been so engaged in developing this special series of shows, and it shows how much they care about their fans.”
The tour launches May 11 in Phoenix and concludes June 16 in Sacramento, with all of the dates listed below. Tickets will go on sale this Friday (Feb. 22) at 10AM local time in each market. Head to The Bash festival website for ticketing, lineup and craft beer participants at each stop.
