It’s OFFICIAL, 2021 is coming and the outlook is very bright! Or, at least it looks better than 2020. With the election behind us and a vaccine in the near horizon, the Summer of Bummer may be nearing its end.
Earlier today it was announced that the 4th ANNUAL SOCAL HOEDOWN will be happening.
With all the challenges in 2020, this news couldn’t have come at a better time. The event organizer is Sellout Events, and the lineup includes some of our favorites.
Sellout is no stranger to putting on epic shows. Last year’s event continues to be a highlight for SoCal concertgoers.
Last year we got to see an epic show bands like The Dickies, Living End, Dead Kennedys and Suicidal Tendencies. Other standouts from previous years include Rocket from the Crypt, Shooter Jennings, Cadillac Tramps, Jello Biafra, Agent Orange, Lee Rocker, Slim Jim Phantom, Supersuckers, Wanda Jackson and Nekromantix just to name a few.
This year’s event is going to be another epic day in the sun. Coming to SoCal are Punk Rock, Psychobilly and Rockabilly legends who will take over the Port of Los Angeles.
Headliners include New Jersey juggernauts, Bouncing Souls and OC Third-Wave Ska-Punk Kings, Reel Big Fish and punk rock heavyweights, T.S.O.L.
The lineup also features legends that will bring a smile to the faces of all concertgoers.
The day will include performances by Fishbone and The Untouchables. Other local favorites include Throwrag and Sidekick.
We asked Sellout principal Scott Tucker how important was putting on this show? He said, “it’s important for a lot of people, for several reasons. 2020 has been tough on artists, promoters, restaurant owners and of course the fans. To get through this, we need to do what we can, when we can… this is a first step to getting our lives back.”
“We’re hoping things get back to normal soon, but we won’t go back to being normal. We’ll learn from this experience… we’ll be smarter about how we put together shows and it’ll make shows better and safer.”

That’s the thing about local music and promoters, sometimes they are a reflection of our communities. The announcement by Sellout Events reflects a great deal of care they are putting into this show, and it should come as no surprise. They listen and learn, each year their shows get better and better.
The festival will be held Saturday, June 21, 2021 at the Port of Los Angeles | Berth 46.
Doors open at 11am and continues to 11pm. Kids 10 and under are FREE! The festival features three stages, tons of great food trucks, craft beer, full bar, lowbrow art exhibit and lots of retail vendors for shopping.
Since Scott Tucker is involved, be prepared for more announcements adding to the list of great bands. So mark your calendar, polish the creepers, pomp the coif, bring the kids, the wife, the whole family and bring your dancing or skankin’ shoes!
