Coastalong Festival

Coastalong Festival Annual Bike-Powered Music and Sustainability Festival at UCLA Coastalong is UCLA’s annual outdoor concert featuring student and local bands and powered 100% by BICYCLES.

Our mission is to educate and inspire UCLA students about unconventional uses of renewable energy while showcasing the link between sustainability, health, music and a wheel-y good time. At the pilot Coastalong on May 24, 2013, eight student groups and a popular local band played for four hours with a sound system powered by the energy of students’ legs for an audience of nearly one thousand. The night was filled not only with pedal-powered music but also bike-powered smoothies and ice cream, a giant sustainability fair, a solar-powered food truck, a yoga class and a sassy bluegrassy moonlit dance/bike party to headliner Dustbowl Revival. This year Coastalong is going virtual! Don't miss out on one the largest annual events at UCLA, save the date: May 22, 2021! We will be featuring student and local bands all while educating students and promoting a sustainable lifestyle. While our festival will not be directly run by our bikes this year, we will still be showcasing our bike power capabilities at our festival and hope to enlighten the UCLA community on the POWER of renewable energy!

A shape-shifting Los Angeles-based duo who Infuse their breezy, west coast electro-pop with elements of hip-hop, indie rock, and psych-pop, Coast Modern is the brainchild of Seattle native Luke Atlas and LA-based Coleman Trapp. The pair met in 2013 as struggling songwriters in the crowded Southern California hitmaking scene. After 2 years of failing to cast their creations into the mainstream, Trapp retreated to Denver, Colorado to get a little perspective, and began writing songs for himself, rather than the latest tastemaker. He would send these noodlings back to Atlas, who would add bits of production, and before long, Atlas was back in the City of Angels and Coast modern was born.

Dark Dazey is an independent, LA-based psych rock band with a flare for genre bending. They are an ambitious and dedicated group of UCLA alumni or current students who have worked together for years to create and share music with communities throughout California. Notable performances include UCLA Spring Sing, Far Out Fest and Coastalong Festival! Their unique sound is broadly a blend of psychedelia, punk, dream-pop, Americana, and Latin music. Dark Dazey draws influence from classic and modern rock experimentalists the likes of Pink Floyd, Santana, Grateful Dead, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Tame Impala, Arctic Monkeys, and Vampire Weekend. They are dynamic and diverse multi-instrumentalists, visual artist, audiophiles, and recording engineers who are dedicated to their craft of creative composition and performance, always exploring new sonic avenues.

Wyatt Sanders is a platinum-selling, triple threat multi-instrumentalist artist, writer, and producer from Tulsa, Oklahoma. After attending Berklee College of Music, Wyatt found himself writing and producing for three years for the likes of Diplo, Trippie Redd, Iann Dior, and more. 

Now, for the first time in a long time, Wyatt has begun writing for himself again and has refocused on crafting his own sound. His new project Wy Wait embodies this transitional time of self-discovery and falling back in love with music. Each song strives to convey unfiltered honesty and vulnerability, honing in on the process of self-acceptance and authenticity. Each song will be released monthly in 2021, slowly piecing together the next chapter of Wyatt.

✨♻️✨ ARTIST HIGHLIGHT ✨♻️✨
.
Reggie Becton is a breath of fresh air, with a hint of something smooth lingering from the past that you truly miss when compared to the trap-infused R&B of today. The MD native discovered the sounds of Marvin Gaye, Prince, Avant, Brandy and Tank at the young age of 17 and since then has worked with and been mentored by musicians who have written for some of the top voices in R&B, allowing him to develop a sound that is a unique fusion of classic R&B and new wave soul. In 2017, Reggie moved to LA with a dollar, a dream, and an air mattress and began to craft his Debut EP, "Phases: A Conceptual EP". Fresh of the release of 'Phases', Reggie is preparing for a groundbreaking year in 2019. When he is not performing or penning tracks for newly signed talent at major record labels. He is hard at work on his new EP, due out later this year. Catch Reggie’s set at #Coastalong2019!

Started by Brian Whipp (vocals and guitar) at Loyola Marymount University, the band currently features Manny Madrigal on the drums and the newest member Cyrus Maleki on bass and keys. The band’s style continues the musical history of American reggae that started with bands like Sublime, goes further back to the Jamaican roots reggae of the 70’s, as well as influences from psychedelic rock, jazz, blues and hip hop. The band’s newest EP release, “Amiga” was recorded at The Dub Room studio in West Hollywood and is available now on iTunes, Spotify and more.

✨♻️✨ ARTIST HIGHLIGHT ✨♻️✨
.
Rising up from the waters of Venice in late October 2018, made from the finest French wines, the freshest Singaporean perfumes, and a pinch of Coachella, the band It’s Romantic is here to ensorcell Coastalong with their blend of jazz, funk, indie, and love. They’ve made a name for themselves in UCLA’s party scene and have continued to expand their horizons, playing in music videos, festivals, and historic venues like the Viper Room. Marcel Burgunder lays the foundation with his soft, soulful Swiss keyboard, while Jorge Castello woos the crowd with his superlative guitar playing and passionate singing. Mikey Schwartz wows with his virtuosic abilities on the sax, and Jonah Nelson lays down that big beat for you to dance to on the drums. Parker plays the tuba. It’s Romantic is eager to share their love of music with you, and we hope you’re excited to share your love of music with them on Saturday! #Coastalong2019

✨♻️✨ ARTIST HIGHLIGHT ✨♻️✨
.
Join Dark Dazey on a sonic journey sliding through the atmosphere. Forged under the influence of psychedelic rock, blues, and jazz, music under direction of Cole Heramb pairs a dazed romantic’s lyrics with juicy, shredding guitar licks. From the narrative album “Goodnight, Black Heart” to his latest single “Swooning Moon Tune” Cole has developed a unique flavor of rock that feels like an existential love-letter melted over soundscapes that leaves listeners high and energized. Let your troubles slip away and get dazey at Coastalong this Saturday ✨
