The Beach Ball Bash, the annual festival by KRBZ (96.5FM), aka the Buzz, featured twenty hours of music over the course of two days from 24 unique artists: Cage the Elephant, X Ambassadors, Alabama Shakes, Glass Animals, Portugal. The Man, The Head and the Heart, Fitz & the Tantrums, Bleachers, Eagles of Death Metal, Violent Femmes, J. Roddy Walston & The Business, Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear, The Strumbellas, KALEO, Kitten, The Moth & The Flame, Hembree, Bleached, Lewis Del Mar, and Run River North. The event was filled with sizzling sun rays and scorching heat, but the dehydration didn’t change the minds of the 29,000 thirsty fans.
