This year marks the debut of Ye Scallywag!, a day-long music, craft beer, wine and food festival in San Diego, CA.
Produced by premier music festival production company Synergy Global Entertainment (SGE), Orange County, California’s most successful and respected craft beer festival producer Brew Ha Ha Productions, San Diego’s leading alternative radio station 91X, and California’s top rock radio station KFM-BFM, the festival will feature over 100 craft breweries and artisan wineries, along with a full day of music led by NOFX and Bad Religion.
91X‘s Halloran adds, “Ye Scallywag! will be the perfect San Diego event to make one truly grateful for this wondrous California lifestyle. The craftiness of the beer, wine, food and bands will prove that indeed, San Diego has the best. I am looking forward to an amazing day.”
Fat Mike of musical headliner NOFX says, “When I started NOFX in 1983 I dreamed of being a scallywag one day, at least by the time I was 50. Well, not only am I a scallywag, but I’m also playing the Scallywag festival! P.S. What’s a scallywag? Is that like being a pirate?”
We think it is definitely like being a pirate, and pirates happen to be one of our favorite things over here at The Indie. It is always exciting when a new music festival can make Southern California its home, but what is doubly impressive about Ye Scallywag! is the attention to foodie detail and the emphasize on a music sub culture that has definitely found a special place in the heart of the Southern California music scene.
