Same Same but Different Festival Comes to Lake Perris State Park

Utilize Our Platform

The weekend-long seaside Same Same But Different Music & Arts Festival is unlike any other music festival you’ve ever attended. It involves camping, art, and a getaway from the ordinary, and it all takes place in Southern California. The Festival will be from September 9 to September 11, 2022, at Lake Perris State Park, California.Β Β 

We Covered this in our Weekly Wire Roundup

Same Same but Different Festival 

Same Same but Different is California’s first camping, music, and arts event. The event will take place from September 9 to September 11, 2022. Same Same But Different is a multi-genre, four-stage music and arts event in picturesque Lake Perris, California, and was created to highlight what makes us all different and distinctive. In addition to tightening security measures, Same Same But Different will restrict attendance to 2,500 people and demand that visitors present evidence of immunization or proof of a negative COVID-19 test. 

The carefully chosen musical schedule, which includes folk/Americana, funk, reggae, techno, and other genres, is intended to push festival visitors outside their musical comfort zones.

The charming Lake Perris Recreational Campgrounds, approximately an hour east of Los Angeles and 90 minutes north of San Diego, will host the return of Same Same But Different. One of Southern California’s most stunning campgrounds, covering 3.5 million square feet, will be open for attendees to explore. They may swim in the lake, go boating, participate in yoga and meditation sessions, stroll the park’s trails, and, of course, take in the world-class talent on display. The event will include two Floatopia Day Parties on the beach, a beachfront bar, live painters, arts and crafts workshops, and great food trucks.

Same Same but Different Festival – 2021 Overlook

Floatopia Beach Party

From 11 a.m. on Friday through Sunday at The Coconut Club. Get your floaties ready because there is a party on the beach. From sunrise to sunset, refreshments will be served in the water at Floatopia, with upbeat music. You won’t want to miss it since it’s an experience you’ll never forget.


At SSBD, you may attend weekend programs to help you reach your potential and spark your spirit. These workshops will include topics like yoga, breathwork, meditation, dance, painting, crafting, intentional movement, and knowledge classes from professionals in their fields. All workshops are open to the public and cost nothing.

Great Meals All Weekend

Although bringing your food is welcome and encouraged, there will be more than ten delectable food trucks and sellers on-site the weekend to help you get through the Festival if you forget. There will be vegan, gluten-free, and food allergy options for sale. Before the Festival, a complete list of food trucks will be made accessible.

Rent a ShiftPod campsite

It is better to reserve a ShiftPod Camp-Site at the event if you’re flying in from out of town, don’t want to fuss with setting up your tent, or want some A/C when you sleep.

We set up a wholly enclosed, private space during the event for you and your visitors. You can stay cool over the weekend with the air-conditioned ShiftPod advanced shelter system. Each unit has a power strip for charging devices, lockable tent doors, updated restrooms nearby, round-the-clock security, and the option of beds or merely a tent.

  • You may only park in designated parking places; driving off paved roads is not authorized.
  • Your car must be no longer than 22 feet. 

2022 Car-Camping Parking Pass – $185
