Leucadia’s ‘Summer Fun on the 101’ features bands, brews and beaches


Local musicians recognized around the world will take the stage for “Summer Fun on the 101: Leucadia’s Music Festival” on June 25 and 26. For the seventh straight year the Leucadia 101 Main Street will present the community’s signature music festival. Artists scheduled to appear include Mattson 2, David J., Birdy Bardot and more.

“Festivities begin on Saturday this year and run through Sunday with a music stroll on Highway 101 to close out the event,” according to Leucadia 101 Main Street Board Member and festival founder Michael Schmitt. “The event continues to grow and provide more incredible music free of charge to the community. Throughout the weekend there will be over 20 bands providing free concerts at the Leucadia Roadside Park, Priority Public House, 454 Tattoo, Lou’s Records, Gold Coast Plaza, and Ducky Waddle’s.”

The Leucadia Main Street will also be hosting North County’s only record swap.

Leucadia 101 Main Street Vice President William Morrison adds, “On Saturday morning, June 25 at 10 a.m. Swell Property will lead a beach cleanup at Beacon’s Beach, and those who help clean up will be entered in an awesome raffle!”

Free music starts at noon at the Leucadia Roadside Park and continues until 7: p.m. Performers throughout the weekend include: David J., the Mattson 2, Birdy Bardot, Ocelot and 15 more of San Diego county’s finest musical acts.

Swell Property and The Lost Abbey/Port Brewing Company will be hosting the popular craft beer garden at 914 N. Coast Hwy 101 on Saturday June 25. New this year, there will be a Sunday beer garden on June 26 presented by Swell Property at Priority Public House at 576 N. Coast Hwy 101.

Leucadia’s mom and pop surf shops, Surfy Surfy, Progression Surf Shop and Bing Surfboards welcome festival goers to do the Surf Shop Hop to win prizes. And there will be hula hooping and art activities for kids.

Shmitt says, “This year the Leucadia 101 Main Street Board will be using $1,000 from the event proceeds to benefit local music education. Proceeds from last year’s event were used to create two $500 music scholarships for local students at San Dieguito Academy.”
