From a press release:

KX 93.5 presents its second annual Festival of Music, featuring legendary
Southern California band The Beach Boys at Irvine Bowl (Pageant of the 
Masters) at 7 p.m. Sept. 27.

The Irvine Bowl Policy Committee, including members of City Council, approved 
the venue’s first use for a major concert in more than 10 years.

“We’re thrilled that the city has the confidence in us to make history by bringing 
a band as iconic as The Beach Boys to Irvine Bowl,” said KX 93.5 Founder and 
Program Director Tyler Russell. “There’s no band with better Southern California 
roots to bring multiple generations of Lagunans together in what should be a truly memorable night.” 

Supporting acts will include Say Say, a Los Angeles indie/electronic duo, and 
133, a local “super-group” featuring Steve Wood, Beth Wood, Jason Feddy, Nick 
Hernandez, Poul Pederson, Bob Hawkins, Drew Hester and Alan Deremo. 
Presenting sponsors include Tuttle Click Automotive, Wilson Automotive and 
133 FILMusic Group.

All proceeds will support non-profits KX 93.5, Tony Hawk 
Foundation, SchoolPower, Mauli Ola Foundation and Surfrider Foundation. 

Doors to the festival area open at 5:30 p.m. and the grounds will feature tasty 
dinner choices with food trucks, beverages and beach-themed cocktails. Beach 
Boys merchandise and sponsor activities will be offered at sponsor booths. 

The Beach Boys are led by Mike Love and Bruce Johnston, who along with 
Christian Love, Randell Kirsch, Tim Bonhomme, John Cowsill and Scott Totten 
continue the legacy of the iconic American band. 

Love’s role as the band’s front man sometimes overshadows his stature as one 
of rock’s foremost songwriters. “Surfin’,” The Beach Boys’ first hit came from his 
pen. With his cousin, Brian Wilson, Love wrote the classics “Fun, Fun, Fun,” “I 
Get Around,” “Help Me Rhonda,” “California Girls” and the Grammy-nominated 
“Good Vibrations.” Years later, he showed he still had the lyrical chops by co-writing the irresistible and chart-topping “Kokomo.”

Tickets start at $45. Special ticket packages that include the “KX 93.5 ‘Five 
Summer Stories’ VIP Pre-Party” with complimentary food and drinks, as well
as an up-close screening of MacGillivray/Freeman's 1972 surf classic "Five 
Summer Stories.” There are also a limited number of passes available for a “Club 
Kokomo” Meet ‘n’ Greet with Mike Love and The Beach Boys.
