A Festival Like No Other:

SSBD began in 2018, started by a few friends, with a couple hundred attendees and since then, well, you know what happens next! The festival has GROWN and has grown exponentially each year. The festival is known for its unique community and the care put into every aspect, SSBD offers far more than just music. It’s a beautiful and glorious place full of connection, wonder, and creativity. The festival is on the beach of Lake Perris and the landscape helps to create an enchanting environment full of all kinds of surprises! Connect with other attendees to create the ultimate experience.

Spectacular Lineup:

Have you seen this lineup? Headliners for this year include the dynamic sounds of Big Gigantic, the visionary LSDream, and the bass-heavy Ganja White Night. Attendees will also enjoy performances by a diverse range of artists such as Andy Frasco and The U.N., Daily Bread, a Desert Hearts beach takeover, Eggy, Justin Jay, Wreckno, Zingara, and many more. The genres span Bass, Electronic, House, Jam, Funk, and Rock, ensuring there’s something for everyone. Love the diversity so EVERYONE can have a good time!

More Than Music:

There’s something special about festivals that include more than just music and SSBD is a full-fledged adventure! There will be over 75 workshops, 3 floatopia beach parties, 40+ interactive art installations, late-night beach parties, hidden stages and performances, team games, and activities plus so much more. You can’t go wrong with a festival like this! In addition, if you’re ready for a grand time, explore the VIP Wellness Lounge, The Family Garden Kid Zone, and The Creation Station arts and crafts zone during the day. And this year, SSBD will be introducing a new, multi-faceted area that will be announced soon, sure to be the festival’s biggest hit yet.

For the Community:

The community is one of the most important aspects of the festival. This vibrant and close-knit community will host only 7,500 people, so you had best grab those tickets ASAP! The festival primarily attracts the hippie and Burning Man crowd, fostering a space for like-minded individuals to connect and celebrate.

Tickets and Accessibility:

Tickets start at $220 for a 2-day General Admission pass. SSBD is fully ADA compliant, ensuring an inclusive experience for all. More information can be found at

Sustainable and Responsible:

SSBD is committed to sustainability with a “zero waste by 2029” initiative. This is great for the environment! Attendees can expect a robust waste sorting program, a tree planting initiative, and a strict “pack it in, pack it out” policy. Our dedication to environmental responsibility is a core principle of the festival.

Partnerships and Highlights:

This year, SSBD is thrilled to partner with MonsterCat for a special stage takeover and to welcome back the Desert Hearts crew for a late-night beach takeover. Ready for some EPIC tunes?
