July 18th, 2018 (Lake Perris, CA) - Say hello to Southern California’s newest music festival, Same Same But Different (SSBD), coming September 22nd and 23rd, 2018.

This inaugural two-day music & arts festival will celebrate the end of summer in a jaw-dropping setting and feature a diverse range of multi-genre musical acts that build in energy throughout the day. On Saturday, performances from Lettuce, Boombox, Through The Roots, The Family Crest, and more will take place across the festival’s two stages. Then on Sunday, headliners The Floozies, will be joined by KNOWER, Moon Hooch, Dirtwire, Capyac, and more. Performances will alternate across the two stages allowing attendees to experience each artist on the lineup without having to choose between overlapping set-times.

Same Same But Different is as much about the music and arts as it is about the location. SSBD will take place at the picturesque Lake Perris Recreational Campgrounds, located just outside of Los Angeles and San Diego. Recognized as one of Southern California’s most beautiful campgrounds, Lake Perris Campground sits above it’s namesake lake and offers a variety of water recreation including swimming, fishing (shore, pier, and boat), boating, sailing, waterskiing, and scuba diving. Attendees will also be able to explore the location’s natural wonders along dedicated hiking, biking, and equestrian trails within the park, as well as enjoy festival yoga and mediation courses. This perfect weekend getaway will even feature an art-zone where guests can participate in one-of-a-kind art classes and live art installations.

Festival organizers Peter Eichar and Brad Sweet explain, “we wanted to create an intimate music festival that we would personally want to attend; something to fill the gap between huge mega-festivals Southern California is home to, and smaller niche festivals that are usually genre specific." Eichar continues, "We know what it’s like to spend an entire paycheck on a festival weekend only to get there and be stuck in the back of a massive crowd. We want to provide an alternative to that experience without sacrificing the quality of music and the overall vibe.”

Two-day General Admission tickets are now on sale and can be purchased for $125. GA tickets include camping, however, car camping and RV upgrades are also available for purchase.
