“X-Fest is a highlight of the summer here in San Diego, and it’s exciting to finally reveal this year’s incredible lineup of artists,” said 91X promotions director Garrett Capone. “My first day at 91X years ago was actually at an X-Fest, so the event holds a special place in my heart as well. Simply cannot wait for Saturday, July 16!”
The first X-Fest was held in 1983 at San Diego Jack Murphy Stadium, which has since been renamed Qualcomm Stadium. It featured Stray Cats, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Ramones, Bow Wow Wow, Modern English and The Flirts. The festival has since continued to pack its lineup with popular acts—in 2008 the lineup included The Offspring, Pennywise, Jimmy Eat World, MGMT, Ludo, My American Heart, The Material, Weatherbox, The Burning of Rome, The Sess and Shark Attack. Last year, the festival boasted the talents of 311, The Offspring, Cake, Unwritten Law, Pepper, Authority Zero, Neon Trees, Paper Tongues, Circa Survive and Civil Twilight.
Incubus is an alternative band from Calabasas, Cali. It released its new album “If Not Now, When?” earlier this year. The band has had four No. 1 hits in its lifetime, including “Drive,” “Megalomaniac,” “Anna Molly” and “Love Hurts.”
Bush is a rock band from London. The group released its first album in 10 years this year, titled “Everything Always Now.” Bush has also been Grammy nominated and has won an American Music Award.
