Summer Ends Music Festival will feature live performances by The Replacements, Foster the People, Capital Cities, Descendents, Violent Femmes, Fitz & the Tantrums and more than 20 other popular acts. The inaugural three-day festival will take place September 26-28 at Tempe Beach Park.  Tickets are on sale now: three-day passes for $250 and single-day passes for $65.

Through September 24, The Spec will be publishing interviews with bands on the lineup and giving away tickets to the event.

Phoenix‘s Fayuca has been delivering a hearty blend of Latin, reggae and rock music since 2005. The band, who lists Slightly Stoopid, Sublime and Manu Chao among its favored artists, made its Fervor Records debut last year with the May release of Barrio Sideshow. The album, which was produced by Ralph Patlan, is the fourth on Fayuca’s discography. Fans can catch the five piece at the KWSS 93.9 local stage on day two of the festival.
