This year marks the debut of Ye Scallywag!, a day-long music, craft beer, wine and food festival, to take place on Saturday, October 22 at Waterfront Park in San Diego, CA. Produced by premier music festival production company Synergy Global Energy (SGE), Orange County, California’s most successful and respected craft beer producer Brew Ha Ha Productions, San Diego’s leading alternative radio station 91X, and California’s top rock radio station KFM-BFM, the festival will feature over 100 craft breweries and artisan wineries, along with a full day of music lead by NOFX and Bad Religion.
“Scallywag! will be unlike any legitimate craft beer or wine event ever produced,” says Ye Scallywag! co-producer Cameron Collins of Brew Ha Ha Productions. “We are bringing in some of the most sought after and award winning breweries in the country as well as some incredible wineries from Paso Robles, the Napa Valley, Central Coast and beyond all set to the music of artists like Bad Religion. We’ve really got something special here!”
91X’s Halloran adds, “Ye Scallywag! will be the perfect San Diego event to make one truly grateful for this wondrous California lifestyle. The craftiness of the beer, wine, food and bands will prove that indeed, San Diego has the best. I am looking forward to an amazing day.”
Fat Mike of musical headliner NOFX says, “When I started NOFX in 1983 I dreamed of being a scallywag one day, at least by the time I was 50. Well, not only am I a scallywag, but I’m also playing the scallywag festival! Ps. What’s a scallywag? Is that like being a pirate?”
During early entry tastings (from 11:00 AM – 4:00 PM), and general admission tastings (from 12:00 PM – 4:00 PM), Ye Scallywag! attendees will enjoy complimentary craft beer and wine samples from top California breweries and wineries at Ye Scallywag!. Local artisan food trucks and pop-up restaurants will also be on site selling a variety of delicious and unique food options throughout the day and evening. After 4:00 PM, several Ye Scallywag! brewers and wineries will offer drinks for purchase, with music continuing until 7:00 PM.
Live music will be on the BMW of Escondido Main Stage, with performances by NOFX, Bad Religion, Goldfinger, Against Me!, Reel Big Fish, and Wakrat. Music kicks off right around 12:00 PM.
