Originally formed as a duo in Reno, Nev., Nick Rattigan and Jacob Rubeck moved to California, where Surf Curse’s multifaceted sound infused with indie, punk, pop and psych rock influences fit perfectly into the Southern California punk scene. The band’s 2013 single “Freaks” found new life on TikTok in 2020 and has since earned over 650 million worldwide streams and Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) platinum certification. The band has performed at Coachella and on top stages around the world. Presented in conjunction with Live Nation.

Princess Goes is a trio comprised of vocalist, lyricist, musician and Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award-winning actor Michael C. Hall (Dexter, Six Feet Under, Hedwig and the Angry Inch), keyboardist Matt Katz-Bohen (Blondie) and drummer

Peter Yanowitz (The Wallflowers, Morningwood). A theatrical sensibility is part of the trio’s DNA, especially in live shows, since the band members met on Broadway during the production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Princess Goes offers a stripped-down synthesizer-and-drum attack and is informed by a wide range of influences, from the glam, experimental, ambient music of David Bowie and Giorgio Moroder’s ‘70s disco productions for Donna Summer to ‘80s new wave dance music and contemporary electronic dance acts like Justice. Presented in conjunction with Live Nation.
