After the past two years of learning we must be flexible when it comes to live events, a bummer announcement was released regarding the Afterburner Festival.
Afterburner Music Festival organizers posted on their social media:
“Last year’s inaugural Afterburner Music Festival was a huge success bringing music back to Huntington City beach for the first time in nearly a decade. It was an incredible addition to Pacific Airshow weekend that delivered a much needed (post-covid) boost to our local small businesses, including our great restaurants, hotels and beyond. We’d like to thank everyone who came out to support this inaugural event!
Unfortunately, delays in obtaining the required approvals have resulted in our decision to postpone the next edition of Afterburner until 2023.”
The remainder of the announcement included their intentions to return in 2023, and reminded fans they can still attend the airshow: “We look forward to seeing you in Huntington Beach Sept. 30 – Oct. 2, 2022 for what will be another incredible edition of Pacific Airshow!”
This year’s event was slated to have live performances from Sammy Hagar & the Circle, Umphrey’s McGee, Sam Hunt, X-Ambassadors, and Cassadee Pope.
Hagar is still on track for his other shows, including the Crazy Times Tour with George Thorogood on September 10th at FivePoint Amphitheatre.
