SUBLIME WITH ROME's ROME RAMIREZ commented, “The secret is out!! SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA, get ready for HIGH & MIGHTY! This festival is extra special to us not only because it's in our hometown, but because we're partners in the event! We wanted to create something special for the fans that help make this music become as big as it has, and what better way to do that than to team up with KROQ and throw a massive festival in ORANGE COUNTY? So grab tickets and come celebrate with us!"
DIRTY HEADS' JARED WATSON added, "We are excited to be putting on our own festival with artists that have influenced us in the past, artists that are influencing us now, and artists that we have come up with. Not only is the lineup insane, but we get to put on a show in our backyard. We get to show people the community that we've had the pleasure of being a part of and helping to build.”
HIGH & MIGHTY co-producer and SUBLIME WITH ROME/DIRTY HEADS manager MIKE "CHEEZ" BROWN said, "I've been kicking around this idea for a while to do our own thing. With IRVINE MEADOWS closing, we knew OAK CANYON would be the perfect setting for something special for our fans here in ORANGE COUNTY. Come check it out, it's going to be memorable."
