The Entertainment:

SESSION 1: March 23 - 8PM-12AM

The Descendents

the descendents ac beer fest

With that tongue-in-cheek battle cry, the nerdsome foursome declared their war against mediocrity. Fueled by the omni-ambitious doctrine of ALL (not ALL the band...that comes later. ALL the concept based on THE TOTAL EXTENT, the peak of pinnacles) and a series of caffeine binges, the essences of pop and punk were percolated together in a way that has yet to be recreated, though many have died trying. Ranks of sympathetic adolescents, previously excluded from the ferocious world of punk rock, followed the sound. They boldly strapped on their glasses, wiped their noses on their sleeves, and launched into the slam pit chanting the Descendents' refrain "I'M NOT A LOSER" like a mantra.

Since their inception in 1984, The Mighty Mighty BossToneS have been one of rock music’s most prolific touring and recording bands.

SESSION 2: March 24   12pm-4pm

The Mighty Mighty BossToneS

mighty mighty boss tones ac beer fest

The BossToneS are credited as a progenitor of the ska-punk genre, and the creators of its sub-genre ska-core, a form of music which mixes ska with punk and hardcore. Since the release of their 1989 debut album Devil’s Night Out, the band has toured and recorded extensively. They were a key figure in the development of the mid-90’s “Third Wave” ska scene and one of the first bands to popularize the genre in the musical mainstream with their platinum-selling 1997 album Let’s Face It, and its hit single “The Impression That I Get.”

SESSION 3: March 24 - 6pm-10pm


PEPPER - the band

The trio, who formed in 1997 and moved to the mainland from their hometown of Kailua Kona, Hawaii has toured extensively with groups like 311, Slightly Stoopid, Flogging Molly and Sublime With Rome, and spent several summers on Warped Tour – and this live sensibility shows. You can almost feel the sand in your toes and the sun on your back as the album progresses, the musician’s amiable personalities palpable beneath the island rhythms and mellow tones. The band’s music – both live and on their releases – is really about enjoying life and being grateful for each experience, a sensibility that’s very familiar to the three musicians currently in their career. From their 1999 debut Give’n It to their 2006 standout album No Shame, which was recorded with 311’s Nick Hexum, No Doubt’s Tony Kanal and Butthole Surfers’ Paul Leary, Pepper has embodied not only a style of music but a lifestyle, one that’s most easily found on beaches across the world, but also one that’s relatable to anyone anywhere.



YES.  To enter The Atlantic City Beer & Music Festival as a patron, you must be 21 years of age with a valid, state-issued form of identification. This guideline cannot be bent in any way shape or form.  Repeat - YES. ALL ATTENDEES, EVEN DESIGNATED DRIVERS MUST BE 21 YRS OLD AND OVER TO ENTER.

Yes! When you purchase a ticket to The Atlantic City Beer & Music Festival, this grants you access to responsibly enjoy our selection of nearly 1,000 beers made by almost 200 breweries from across the globe. Enjoy!

You're a good friend. No seriously, thank you for doing that. Designated Driver tickets are sold AT the box office only, on the day of the event. You're permitted to enjoy the music, the food, the amusements, and the vendors, just not the beer. You'll also get a complimentary high-five from us for being so awesome.  REPEAT: ALL ATTENDEES MUST BE 21YRS OLD AND OVER TO ENTER THE EVENT!

That's a negative there, friend. Unless you're participating in the Hops Trot and need to head to coat check or bag check with your race bib still attached. Due to state and local alcohol control board guidelines for the safety and security of our patrons, staff, and bands, once a patron exits the festival floor they will not be granted re-entry to the event. This guideline is adhered to strictly and is not able to be negotiated.

We currently have plans to facilitate the needs of people with coats outside of the main entrance under the escalator on the 2nd floor, depending on the weather. This coat check will be operated and administered by The Atlantic City Convention Center, not Good Time Tricycle Productions. 

Please note that the Ticket fee includes the Atlantic City Tax & Fees.
