Hurley presents the tunes the next night with Grouplove headlining and supported by White Arrows and Hindu Pirates.
Presented by Nike, TV On The Radio perform Aug. 3 along with opener Toro Y Moi.
“For years my brothers and I have been going to the U.S. Open to watch the competition, so to perform and hang with the best surfers in the world is such an honor to me,” said Grouplove’s Andrew Wessen.
And just like the surf and skate competitions, all concerts are free and open to the public.
In addition to the music, surfing and skateboarding, the U.S. Open of Surfing promises “one-of-a-kind retail and brand experiences, public skate courses, movie premieres, 100 interactive exhibits, autograph signings, DJs and giveaways.”
