Josh Fischel, founder of Music Tastes Good, dies at 47

Josh Fischel, the founder of last weekend’s inaugural Music Tastes Good Festival in Long Beach, died Thursday afternoon of liver disease, according to festival organizers. He was 47.

The news came as a shock to the Long Beach and Southern California music communities, who just days ago saw Fischel overseeing the culmination of a life’s work in local music.

Fischel is survived by his wife, Abbie.

Though family and festival organizers knew he had been sick, no one knew how rapidly his disease would progress after the festival. Music Tastes Good was a three-day event in downtown Long Beach headlined by the likes of the Specials, Warpaint and the Squeeze, among many others.
