By Scott Bernstein Apr 5, 2021 1:00 pm PDT

Big Gigantic, STS9, CloZee and The Polish Ambassador top the initial lineup for Same Same But Different 2021. The limited-capacity music festival will be held at Lake Perris State Recreational Area in Perris, California September 9 – 12.

LSDream, BoomBox, The Motet, Dirtwire, J. Worra, Gene Farris and Red Giant Project featuring Karl Denson are just a few of the additional acts set to play Same Same But Different 2021 this September. Capacity will be limited to 2,500 guests with attendees required to show proof of vaccination or proof of a negative COVID-19 test (taken within the previous seven days) when arriving at the festival and before entering the festival gates. Head here for the festival’s COVID-19 safety plan.

“It’s been a long time coming, but we’re so excited to finally offer our attendees the best Same Same But Different experience yet,” explained Brad Sweet, Co-Producer with Same Same But Different. “We have an amazing lineup this year! We’re excited we can host talent like Big Gigantic in Southern California after they had to postpone their Los Angeles show in 2020 due to the pandemic. This year’s Same Same But Different will be an amazing opportunity for festival goers to enjoy the outdoors, listen to talented musicians perform live and spend time with friends – all things that have been missing for over a year now.”

Same Same But Different, now in its third year, takes place at the scenic Lake Perris Recreational Campgrounds. The site is located a mere hour east of Los Angeles and 90 minutes northeast of San Diego. In addition to the music, festivalgoers can explore the massive campground, go swimming, hike and participate in yoga and meditation workshops.

Tickets go on sale this Friday, April 9 at 1 p.m. ET. Organizers will plant five trees for every ticket purchased as part of the Eden Reforestation Project.
