Freestyle Festival Tickets
Freestyle Festival is an annual festival of '80s music that has been jumping off in the spring of every year in Long Beach. Over the past few years, the festival has been held at the Queen Mary Events Park. In 2018, the festival was held on Cinco de Mayo.
Takin' You Back to the '80s
For 13 years, the Freestyle Festival has turned Long Beach into a time machine where concertgoers are transported back to the '80s to move and groove to all of their favorite music. Since 2005, as many as 8,000 attendees have flocked to Long Beach to experience the Freestyle Festival show. Past festivals have featured many of the superstars of the '80s and a few from the '90s. MC Hammer was a part of the 13th annual show and performed hits like "2 Legit 2 Quit," "Pumps and a Bump" and "U Can't Touch This." Egyptian Lover also showed up with songs such as the hit "Egypt, Egypt." "I'm Too Sexy" was one of the bangers on the festival stage when Right Said Fred appeared in 2018. What would an '80s show be like without the Village People performing "YMCA" on stage? Lisa Lisa has been a regular on the Freestyle Festival stage over the past decade performing hits like "Head to Toe," "I Wonder If I Take You Home" and "Lost in Emotion." Jody Watley has been a featured artist more than once as well with hits like "Lookin' For a New Love" and "Don't You Want Me." The Sugarhill Gang has been a part of the festival many times as well. Who can sit still when hits "Rapper's Delight" and "Jump On It" come boomin' through speakers? Some of the other acts over the past decade include Bell Biv Devoe, Stevie B., Rob Base, House of Pain, Arrested Development, Naughty by Nature, Mark Morrison, Trinere, The English Beat, Salt N Pepa, Sweet Sensation, Debbie Gibson, Slick Rick, Biz Markie, Color Me Badd, Digital Underground, Connie, Nu Shooz, Debbie Deb, Robin S., Pretty Poison, Tiffany, Gucci Crew, Keith Sweat, Expose', Shannone, The Cover Girls and many more. Backup dancers, backdrops and props add to the grand performances from all of your throwback favorites from the '80s.
