Now that summer is in full swing, we can look forward to what is maybe the summeriest festival of them all, in a place where it's pretty much summer all the time anyway. The 2012 Nike US Open of Surfing is coming up, presenting three nights of music and full days of surf and skate competition. Specifically, the festival will run from August 1 to August 3 on Huntington Beach, with all events being free and open to the public. If you can’t be there, all the festivities can be viewed live daily at www.usopenofsurfing.com. This year, aside from the obvious draw of top surf and skate athletes, here’s the musical lineup that’s been confirmed so far for each day:
Thursday: BestNewBand.com favorites Grouplove will headline with what is sure to be a raucous show, preceded by the psychotropic stylings of White Arrows and Hindu Pirates, who will add some garage to the surf...rock.
Music starts at 4:30pm each day. Follow along on Twitter and Facebook for the most recent news updates and music additions
