The two day music festival, powered by Gringo Bandito hot sauce, will also bring craft beer, mouthwatering tacos from all around Southern California, and exciting live entertainment to the oceanfront locale.

Headliners for Sabroso Fest include some of the most influential rock and punk bands to ever come out of SoCal including The Offspring, Bad Religion, Flogging Molly, The Descendents, Black Flag, Face to Face, Lagwagon and more!
