In addition to the bands, the festival will feature beer on ice and food on the barbecue, according to the website.

“This is what a summer concert is all about,” the website says.

Sublime, a ska punk and reggae rock band from southern California, had the hits “What I Got,” which hit No. 1 on the Modern Rock chart in 1996; and “Santaria” and “Wrong Way,” both of which hit No. 3 in 1997.

The group’s 1992 debut “40 oz. to Freedom,” sold double platinum, and its self-titled third album in 1996 sold 5 million copies.

But lead singer Bradley Nowell died of a heroin overdose in 1996 and the group disbanded for more than a dozen years before reforming with new lead singer Rome Ramirez in 2009.

Badfish: A Tribute to Sublime, from Providence, R.I., has toured since 2001.
