We love free summer concerts!
The 2011 Nike US Open of Surfing has a soundtrack and it will play live on the beach before tens of thousands of fans. The event, owned and produced by IMG, the global leader in sports and entertainment, is taking a cue from its action sports roots, and set to deliver the largest free concert series of the summer.

"It's fun bringing some of the best musicians in the world to the US Open of Surfing," says Hurley's Director of Music and Entertainment Marketing Greg Teal. "It doesn't get much better than hearing your favorite band perform live on the beach."
This year's musical line-up is a representation of today's youth culture featuring headlining sets by pysch-pop rockers MGMT, platinum-selling rockers Jimmy Eat World and Swedish electro/rock sensations The Sounds. The series will also include sets by the most buzzed about names emerging on the music scene this year: Surfer Blood and Dead Country. "We're pretty excited to come to Huntington Beach for the US Open of Surfing. Our advice to everyone: Drop out with MGMT, drop by for MGMT, but just don't drop in on MGMT," said MGMT's Andrew VanWyngarden.
Known as the world's largest youth culture and action sports festival, the Nike US Open of Surfing will feature daily concerts Thursday through Saturday, August 4th through 6th, at the conclusion of the surfing competition. All concerts are free and open to the public.
Thursday, August 4 4:30-6:30pm - The Sounds featured with Walk The Walk
