Legendary punk rock band RANCID have teamed up with premier music event producer/promoter Synergy Global Entertainment, Inc. (SGE) and respected craft beer event production powerhouse Brew Ha Ha Productions to debut The Bash – a brand new music and craft beer festival hitting the U.S. this spring.
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!Tim Armstrong – Rancid
The Bash launches on May 11 in Phoenix, AZ and includes a total of 7 stops in May and June. With a lineup curated by RANCID, all dates of The Bash will feature music from 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. Each date of The Bash will also host craft beer tastings (until 4:00 P.M.) from some of the best breweries in the country. Beer tastings will vary by city according to local alcohol laws and restrictions. Music and brewery lineup details per date can be seen at http://www.TheBashFestival.com.
In addition to a diverse selection of participating beers and breweries, each date will offer Brewstomper Golden Ale – a collaboration between Rancid and Ska Brewing out of Durango, CO. Brewstomper will be available at all dates of The Bash for sampling and at concessions, as well as everywhere that Ska Brewing is sold, in both cans and on draft.
The Bash is going to be absolutely epic. The lineup of bands pair perfectly with the craft beer industry’s spirit of creativity and independence! We’ve brought in some of the most exciting breweries and beers in the nation for The Bash, it’s a MUST attend event!Cameron Collins of Brew Ha Ha Productions
