EDM darling Kaskade back for annual shoreline invasion; expands to two days

Long Beach will once again welcome EDM and house master Kaskade as he invades the shores of our city on July 13 and 14.

Once again named SunSoaked, ticket information is set to be announced in the coming days.

The inaugural SunSoaked event in 2017 drew over 13,000 people to the western edge of the shore just east of Shoreline Drive for a massive concert that included opening acts Bynon, Ravell b2b Lipless, SNBRN and Gryffin. Last year’s event? 31,000 people attended, prompting this year’s expansion.

This isn’t the first time Kaskade has visited Long Beach, even outside of last year’s massive event; he set sail with the EDM-based Groove Cruise out of the Port of Long Beach back in 2013.
