Tickets on Sale for West Beach Music & Arts Festival

The event will return for its third year Sept. 18-20

September on the West Coast not only marks the time of year UCSB rolls back into session; it also heralds the return of the West Beach Music & Arts Festival.

Event producers Twiin Productions has announced that one of America’s only beach festivals will return for its third year Sept. 18-20. Tickets go on sale Saturday.

The three-day gathering for music fans, families and beachgoers will feature nonstop performances by rock, reggae and jam bands G. Love & Special Sauce, Steel Pulse, Pepper, Rebelution, Iration, Ozomatli, Soja, Shwayze, The Aggrolites, Still Time, Tomorrows Bad Seeds, Sashamon, Dirty Heads, The Kicks, Sunshine Brothers, Pacific Dub, Through the Roots and One Drop. More musical talent will be unveiled at a later date.

Located seaside just west of Santa Barbara’s Stearns Wharf, the all-ages festival also will feature arts and crafts vendors, activities for children and The OASIS, a lush tropical inspired-area surrounded by palm trees in the heart of the festival.

“It’s amazing how much growth the festival experienced this past year, from 1,500 attendees in its first year to more than 20,000 attendees in its second year, but it’s not stopping there,” Twiin Productions’ Jeremy Pemberton said. “This year, the collaborations we have made with other organizations within the community have really set us up for an even stronger festival this year.”

“We are being strategic in our promotions and partnerships to allow maximum benefits for our community,” Twiin Productions partner Joshua Pemberton said. “It’s our goal to drive tourism and consumer spending throughout our local businesses and hotels. We are very excited that this is only the beginning of our announcements. We have many more surprises to share in the near future.”

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
