" P.O.D. (Payable on Death) formed in San Diego, CA, in 1992, and have since charted their own course with worldwide sales exceeding 10 million, hugely successful international tours, and a series of chart-topping radio hits. Over the span of two decades they have released eight studio albums of original songs – including the triple-platinum Satellite – seen chart success with more than a dozen Rock radio hits, including “Southtown,” “Alive,” “Youth of the Nation,” and “Boom,” the Active Rock hit “Beautiful” and their No. 1 single, “Lost In Forever,” received three GRAMMY Award® nominations, and racked up four No. 1 music videos. The band has also contributed songs to numerous major motion picture soundtracks. P.O.D. is Sonny Sandoval (vocals), Marcos Curiel (guitar), Traa Daniels (bass) and Wuv Bernardo (drums). The members of P.O.D. are also active members of a tight-knit music community, collaborating on their own records as well as others’, including Katy Perry, H.R. (Bad Brains), Mike Muir (Suicidal Tendencies), Sen Dog (Cypress Hill), and more. P.O.D. released their ninth studio album, The Awakening (T-Boy/UMe), on August 21, 2015."
"Since their formation in the mid-90s, Lit has paved a unique path to success that continues on today. The hit records A Place in the Sun (1999) and Atomic (2001 ) spawned mega-singles “My Own Worst Enemy," "Zip-Lock," "Miserable," and “Lipstick and Bruises”... as well as a decade of sold-out crowds, major label deals and world tours. An 11-week No.1 single, platinum records, all fueled by a dedicated and active fanbase. In 2008, however, the rollercoaster ride to the top of rockdom halted abruptly when the band’s beloved drummer Allen Shellenberger was diagnosed with a brain tumor that took his life a year later. Since Shellenberger’s death and dedicating their fifth studio record The View From The Bottom (2012) to him, Lit has been actively touring, writing, recording, and switching lanes over to Country."
Alien Ant Farm
"Since the formation of Alien Ant Farm in 1995, the quartet has enjoyed worldwide success. Over the course of their four studio albums, cumulative sales surpass five million units a Grammy nomination and 4 top 10 singles. The band built a massive following on the road early in their career via high profile 2001 runs with Linkin Park, Papa Roach, Warped, and as the headliner on an MTV presented Fall Tour. In 2002, fame spread across the world, bringing Alien Ant Farm to the major European festivals, Australia's Big Day Out and a headline run in Japan. The following year they returned to Europe with Metallica, and to this day the band has steadily delivered audiences in territories across the globe. "
These three bands will perform with support from local rockers like Bobaflex, Strange Daze, Sleep Signals, ANTISTAR, Meridian Incident & DIVIDE THE FALL.
