On April 20, news broke that Sublime With Rome and Dirty Heads would be teaming up to put together the inaugural High & Mighty Festival, taking place Saturday, Aug. 5 and Sunday, Aug. 6, in Orange County at Oak Canyon Park in Silverado. Presented by KROQ, the two-day weekend extravaganza will showcase a range of performances by Sublime With Rome, SOJA, Stick Figure, Method Man & Redman, Magic!, Ghostface Killah, King Lil G, Custom, Landon McNamara, Iya Terra, Dirty Heads, Jurassic 5, Tribal Seeds, Tech N9ne, Chief Keef, Murs, Ballyhoo!, Katastro, Pacific Dub and Know-Madik (with more to be announced).

In honor of the occasion, SeaLegs At The Beach hosted a super intimate private event on Thursday, with special acoustic performances by freestyle artist Know-Madik, reggae musicians Pacific Dub and California’s own Sublime With Rome. The Huntington Beach location provided the perfect vibe to usher in the good news. AXS was there for the special announcement and got to speak with Know-Madik about all the excitement.

“Tonight was awesome,” the hip hop artist said post-performance. “I’ve lived all over Southern California and doing a show on the beach with my homies, Sublime With Rome and Pacific Dub, was a dream come true.” As far as the upcoming summer event goes; “It’s one of the dopest lineups I’ve ever seen,” he said. “It’s THE one festival of the year. It would be stupid to miss.”

And thankfully, you won’t have to miss it, because tickets go on sale today. Single-day options start at $65 (plus parking and fees). There are also a limited number of Saturday/Sunday VIP packages available, including Meet & Greets with both Dirty Heads and Sublime With Rome. You can head to HighandMightyFest.com for details.

Be sure to keep it on AXS for more on the inaugural festival.
