The announcement of the two-day festival follows The Growlers leaving behind their five-year association with SoCal festival Beach Goth. The name Growlers Six appears to make reference to this being the sixth festival the group has thrown, but now under a different name. Last year the festival’s venue, Santa Ana’s The Observatory, sued The Growlers for copyright infringement after Beach Goth faced a disastrous year with an oversold crowd and heavy rain. The Observatory is suing The Growlers over the name Beach Goth, which the band had been using since 2006. The venue, however, had been putting on and promoting The Growlers headlined Beach Goth festival since 2012.

Tickets for Growlers Six go on sale Aug. 11 at 10 a.m. PST. Head to The Growlers website for more details.
