Over the past few years Orange County’s favorite surf rock studs The Growlers host one of the biggest 3-day parties on the West Coast. Beach Goth has been one of the most eclectic and fresh festivals to date. In a market saturated by a seemingly unending menagerie of new festivals popping up Beach Goth is able to set itself apart by getting together some of the most in demand and up and coming artists from across the globe all in once place. This year is no exception as the bill from top to bottom is simply superb.


For starters we have Justice and Gucci Mane both making huge comebacks this year. Old hip-hop favorites like 2 live crew, TLC, and The Pharcyde will be taking the stage before or after rock legends like Joy Division and The Faint. Just take a look at this line-up and tell us you’re not impressed. I hope you are excited as we are for all this talent to be in once place as Beach Goth is simply about the music and keeps it that way.




Sebastian – H.A.L.


King Krule – Octopus


RL Grime – Aurora


Violent Femmes – Blister in the Sun

Music as smooth and awakening as his name. Hailing from South Africa, Nkosinathi Innocent Maphumulo (that’s right his middle name is “Innocent”), better known as Black Coffee has been putting out his brand of eclectic beats and productions since 1995. With 5 albums under his belt, Black Coffee is arguably the biggest electronic producer to ever come out of the cradle of civilization.


His African heritage can be heard throughout most of his productions as he uses many loops and drum patterns rooted in the rhythms of his roots. Black Coffee really shines in his excellent use of female vocalists that meld perfectly over his multifarious beats. Songs like “Superman” featuring Bucie and Gratitude with Rebecca Murray perfectly weave each vocalist’s stylings throughout each layer and texture of the rhythmic backdrops. It is this sonic marriage that gives Black Coffee’s tracks more depth and distinction over the next guy.


Black Coffee – Monkey See Monkey Do

Black Coffee Feat. Bucie – Turn Me On

What if the new season of American Horror Story took place in a haunted Studio 54? Well, headlining opening night would be Dolls. Nikki Milovanovic, formerly the lead singer of Canadian synth pop band The Royal Society, moved to London in 2013 to begin her solo career under her new moniker: Dolls. Part new wave, part gothic, all avant-garde Dolls is poised for a killer 2016.


Dolls’ sophomore album, Eat It Up (dropping May 20th), is a combined effort with UK producer Fauxplay and we cannot wait for it to come out in all its synthy goodness.


Dolls – Just Stop

Dolls – Pedestal (Sneak Peak)
