Summertime in the LBC 2018 Preview


Making its way to back to Long Beach’s Queen Mary Park this Saturday with yet another decked out lineup is the one and only Summertime in the LBC festival. Last year’s lineup featured some of hip-hop and Long Beach’s best who will indeed be returning for another round of the festival this weekend. Those names including the likes of Warren G, DJ Quik and Suga Free, as well as Tha Dogg Pound.

This year’s lineup also features an added appearance from a number of influential artists like The Game, The Isley Brothers, and untouchable OG’s, Snoop Dogg and Ice Cube. As a result of last year’s festival, the influence of the names that comprise a lineup such as Summertime in the LBC is apparent from the moment one steps within the festival gates. From the faces in the crowd, down to the way that they carry themselves, the visual representation of the breeding of pure hip-hop music is ever-present.

As always, the preservation of hip-hop culture is important, and Summertime in the LBC does nothing short of that.

 Tips for Survival 
  • Know who you want to see in advance

  • Arrive early to avoid the parking fiasco

  • Dress for the weather (it will be warm, but you will be near/on the ocean)



  • Bring ear plugs (if you need them)

  • Pack a small bag

  • Wear sunscreen! Overcast still causes sunburn
  • Bring Chapstick

  • Wear comfortable shoes

  • Have a portable charger handy

  • If you don’t want to spend much, eat a decent amount of food before.

  • Come ready to have a good time!
