We’re back to work, gearing up for this years festival at Lake Perris. This year we’re going to be holding the festival ON the sand at Perris Beach! Perris Beach is just down the way from Moreno Beach (last year’s location). The new location opens up a lot more possibilities for the festival like…- Camping ON the beach! Plop that tent, yurt or upside down canoe…
As we get closer to the kickoff year of SSBD Fest the questions have been rolling in about what to bring, what to expect, when to get there, etc. We thought we’d shed some light on the plans for the festival and let you know everything we can tell you so you’re fully aware of what to expect when you get to Same Same But Different. We want to still keep some things a surprise though :)
We’re very excited to announce a partnership with The Social Garden. The Social Garden is a non-profit organization and their goal is to build and create awareness of local organic food farms through the curation of social gatherings including farm fresh foods, live music, art, dance and educational workshops.
Volunteering at a festival of any kind can be a very rewarding experience. It's a way to experience the magic of a music festival without the hefty price-tag that can come with weekend passes and camping passes. It's also a way to get a behind-the-scenes look at the operations of the festival, it's a chance to meet really cool people, and be part of the team that makes the magic happen.
We heard from lots of people that they wanted a different way to be on the property at SSBD Fest that wasn't just camping. Some just didn't enjoy camping but still wanted to be on-site, others were traveling from other parts of the country and didn't want to buy a tent/supplies just to throw it all away right after. Whatever the reason, if this is you we got you covered...
Same Same But Different Festival isn’t just for the adults, the festival is kid-friendly as well so you can bring the whole family for a weekend getaway. We put together a list of some things you can do while at the festival that are more “kid-friendly”.
A lot of people have asked us why we chose to set up our festival with two stages, rotating back and forth, with music going on only one stage at a time. Many have asked, understandably, why we don't want to have music going on both stages at the same time like many other festivals.
