Dirty Heads

In this its fifth incarnation, the BeachLife Festival, May 3 to 5, brought a splendid mingling of ocean vibes, colorful people and unique, multi-genre mélange of music to the Seaside Lagoon at Redondo Beach, Calif.

Southern California alternative rock outfit DIRTY HEADS spent the summer touring across the U.S. on the headlining “Island Glow” tour and are excited to share a new live- recorded version of their hit single “John Linen” which features rapper Yelawolf who was featured as an opening act on the first leg of the tour. The single is out today across all digital platforms via Better Noise Music HERE along with a new music video featuring performance footage from the tour.


Day four of Cali Roots wrapped up the weekend in a style befitting its own legacy. In a statement on the theme of the Reggae festival, it was the only day of the weekend not to feature a pure Hip Hop artist on any of its stages. The focus on the roots of the festival made for a lowkey pace at the tail end of a weekend that had been so fulfilling and so energy-consuming.

In covering Monterey’s Cali Roots for so many years, Grateful Web has had the opportunity to meet many artists whose names have shined brightly on the lineup, but in this time, the SoCal powerhouse Dirty Heads have found a way to weave themselves into the very fabric of the modern reggae movement itself.

Since 2001, Dirty Heads have mixed hip-hop, reggae, and rock to create a unique sound that both fully embodies their Southern California roots and resonates with audiences around the globe.

Dirty Heads are currently out streaming some of the biggest alternative acts in the U.S., with over 1.29 MILLION digital track sales and 2.7 BILLION on-demand streams since 2018. Dirty Heads also have over 3.1 million unique monthly listeners on Spotify.
