The Beach Goth Festival Returns With Its Least Beach-y, Goth-y Lineup Yet
Bon Iver will headline Beach Goth V.
Orange County rockers The Growlers have announced the lineup for the fifth installment of Beach Goth, and it's clear that they remain committed to expanding the sounds of their ever-growing festival far beyond the punk, garage and psych-rock that filled out most of the lineup in its early days.
After scoring such diverse headliners last year as Grimes, Die Antwoord, Mac DeMarco and Juicy J, The Growlers have once again upped the ante and the eclecticism with this year's headliners, who include ethereal folk-rocker Bon Iver, French electro-house titans Justice, moody electronic crooner James Blake and rapper Gucci Mane. The Growlers themselves will co-headline, as usual, as will RL Grime, King Krule, Future Islands, Violent Femmes and TLC.
Beach Goth also moves to a new venue this year: Oak Canyon Park, also home of the new Day N Night Festival, produced by Beach Goth's former home base, the Observatory. Dates are Oct. 22 and 23 and tickets will go on sale Friday, July 15, at 10 a.m. at beachgothfest.com.
