Darker Waves Festival, An Upcoming New Wave Fest On The Beach This Fall

Darker Waves Festival
New Order, one of the headliners of the Darker Waves Festival


The success of festivals like Cruel World or Just Like Heaven may be the inspiration behind another upcoming music fest, Darker Waves Festival, featuring a lot of Goth and New Wave rock bands. Just like Cruel World, this new festival will be a single-day concert event, but, this time, it will take place at Huntington City Beach on Saturday, November 18. It’s a gamble since mid-November weather can be uncertain in Los Angeles, especially on the beach, but let’s hope for a California endless summer.

Darker Waves Festival will feature over 30 acts performing across three stages, so be prepared for a very packed day, with two headliners: Tears For Fears and New Order. The inaugural lineup will also include The B-52s, Echo & the Bunnymen, The Human League, OMD, Violent Femmes, She Wants Revenge, Devo, Soft Cell, The Psychedelic Furs, The Cardigans, Molchat Doma, X, The English Beat, Crosses, T.S.O.L., Kavinsky, Death in Vegas, The Chameleons, Clan of Xymox, London After Midnight, Cold Cave, Blossoms, Drab Majesty, Mareux, Twin Tribes, Depresión Sonora, 45 Grave, Christian Death, Glass Spells, Skeletal Family, Urban Heat… you will recognize acts that were already playing Cruel World last month (Echo & the Bunnymen, The Human League), or even last year! This looks like a mix of Cruel World and Just Like Heaven which proves that the appeal for New Wave and beyond is still well alive.

Registration for the festival SMS list is now open at if you want to receive an access code for pre-sale access that will begin at 10 a.m. on Friday, June 23 at

The remaining tickets following the pre-sale will be available to the general public at 2 p.m. on Friday, June 23. Tickets will have a layaway payment plan starting at $19.99 down for general admission and VIP options.

See you on the beach in November!
