Kendrick Lamar

MTV's 2013 No. 1 Hottest MC in the Game, and HipHop DX's 2012 "Emcee of the Year", Compton native Kendrick Lamar has turned heads since his 2010 release of Overly Dedicated. However, the critically acclaimed Rapper has reached new levels of success in 2012 and 2013 with his certified gold album good kid, m.A.A.d city.

Dada Life

Known for mixing their pop-leaning electro with an over the top sense of humor, bananas, and a kinetic live show, Swedish electro-house duo Dada Life have blown through the DJ charts since 2010. Frequently headlining both Electric Daisy Carnival and Ultra Music Festival along the way, the artists have made a reputation for themselves- after all, "This is Dada Land. Get Ready to arrive beautiful and leave ugly."

J Boog

Samoan descended Reggae Artist J Boog brought his unique fusion of authentic island music and Reggae to Hawaiian independent record label Wash House Music in 2007, with his debut album "Hear Me Roar." His authentic fusion of the genres has lead to the categorization of his sound as, "Jawaiian", and J Boog has shown no signs of slowing down since then, continuing his rise with his second #1 single, "Let’s Do it Again."

The Growlers

Costa Mesa's The Growlers are known for their distinctive mix of Californian 60's surf rock with a wide variety of effects and genres from country to hip-hop, all mixed in together with a heavy use of psychedelic influences. The result is the groovy, lo-fi sound the Growlers have self-titled as "Beach Goth", and which has quickly made them a staple in the California surf rock scene.

Alpha Phunk

Winners of this year's Battle of the Bands contest, Alpha Phunk has earned the coveted opening spot at Extravaganza.

  2. I am a UCSB student, faculty, or staff member. How do I obtain a UCSB Access ID?
    UCSB students, faculty, and staff can get an Access card at the UCEN Access Desk located on the 2nd floor of the UCen, above The Hub.

Black and white cards are free only for first time cards to Transfers, Graduates, and EAP students only.

  8. Why is free entry to the event closed to the general public this year?
    Festival-goers at previous Extravaganzas were subjected to long lines and overcrowding, as Harder Stadium proved unable to accommodate UCSB students, all their guests, and all other visitors. After considering many different options, we have decided to make Extravaganza 2013 open only to UCSB students, faculty, and staff.
