Rock legend Sammy Hagar confirmed the initial lineup and details of his second annual High Tide Beach Party & Car Show on the shores of the Pacific Ocean in Huntington Beach, California. Due to incredible demand for tickets to his inaugural party in 2018 which sold-out in advance, the High Tide Beach Party will return this year as a two-day party, September 28 and September 29, with double the music, cars, food, drinks and more.
Headlining the 2019 party are SAMMY HAGAR & THE CIRCLE (featuring Michael Anthony, Jason Bonham and Vic Johnson) with special guest Richie Sambora, THE BEACH BOYS, Vince Neil of MÖTLEY CRÜE, NIGHT RANGER, BLUE ÖYSTER CULT, EXTREME, STEEL PANTHER, Tony Lewis from THE OUTFIELD, Patty Smyth and SCANDAL, and more.
Tickets go on sale Thursday, May 16 at 7:00 a.m. PDT at HighTideBeachParty.com.
"We knew we were on to something special when we started planning the High Tide Beach Party with Sammy Hagar last year," said event producer John Oakes of Freeze Management. "But we were blown away when it sold out in advance the first year. We learned a lot and this year we're coming back to make the party bigger and better, aimed at enhancing the attendees' experience."
In addition to the stellar lineup, Sammy Hagar's High Tide Beach Party & Car Show will also return with two days of its acclaimed car show, presented by Mickey Thompson Tires And Wheels, and featuring an amazing collection of luxury, exotic, European, custom, classic, movie and hyper cars — curated by MuscleKingz. Some of the automobiles shown will include Sammy Hagar's personal Ferrari BB512i from his "I Can't Drive 55" music video, Viciousstang — the twin-charged "Million Dollar Mustang," as well as one of the legendary "General Lee" 1969 Dodge Chargers used in the original filming of "The Dukes Of Hazzard" TV series, owned by Chrome Cars. The Mickey Thompson Car Show area will feature various invited cars and attendees can submit their cars to be included in the show online at HighTideBeachParty.com. Encore Gas & Supply, Keystone Automotive Operations, Original Parts Group, The Fab School, Gatorwraps, CVRD Canopies, Gibson Guitars and more will have interactive displays onsite throughout the car show.
Fest goers can enjoy several specially curated food and drink offerings including a beachside outpost of Sammy's legendary Cabo Wabo Cantina. The Cabo Wabo grill will serve authentic handmade tacos, delivering big Mexican flavors north of the border. Bars will be located throughout the party with refreshing cocktail pairings including margaritas and specialty drinks featuring Santo Mezquila and Sammy's Beach Bar Rum, as well as beer, wine and other refreshments. In true beach party fashion, fest-goers can enjoy the beautiful sand and sites at Huntington State Beach thanks to California State Parks. The immersive beach experience will also feature classic beach activities including a cornhole tournament, games, specialty photo ops, as well Polynesian, Tahitian and line dancing instruction at the Red Rocker Party Bar.
