Tiki Oasis 19: “Catch The New Wave”
The largest and the longest-running Tiki Festival in the world happens this weekend in San Diego!
As always at Tiki Oasis, the event is all about the Tiki lifestyle. And, every year, the event explores a theme which adds dimension or explores a different aspect of Popular Culture tangential to Tiki.
“Catch the New Wave!” is a nod toward Surf music, while “New Wave” is a blast from the early 1980s.
There will be a ton of live music from the likes of:
Agent Orange, Debora Iyall of Romeo Void, Drifting Sand, Tiny Bubbles featuring Gerald Casale of Devo, Jesika von Rabbit , Joey & The Showmen, Jon & the Nightriders, Josie Cotton, Los Freneticos, Los Tiki Phantoms, MongoLounge, Par Avion, The Fleshtones, The Greasy Gills, The Hula Girls, The Insect Surfers, The Intoxicats, The New Waves, The Outta Sites, The Surfrajettes, Tikitronic, Tikiyaki Orchestra, Tim Polecat

ABOUT TIKI OASIS
Tiki Oasis was conceived in 2000 as a fundraiser to support the rehabilitation of the mid-century Palm Springs Caliente Tropics Motel which attracted a small gathering of tikiphiles. The event, which moved to San Diego in 2006 and has grown to include two locations, three hotels, over 15 seminars, 100 vendors, numerous sponsors, a slew of talent which is enjoyed by over 3000 attendees.
That’s a whole lot of tiki!
See you there!
