Last year, Eddie Vedder launched a new music festival that paired an amazing line-up with perfect So-Cal beach weather at Doheny State Beach. With more than 22, 000 attendees, last year’s festival was surely a success, and Mr. Vedder is bringing the relaxed vibes and music back to the Dana Point beaches with another stellar line-up.
2017’s festival has been expanded to 3 days, and boasts and impressive line-up that includes Social Distortion, Eddie Vedder, Jack Johnson, Pixies, Haim, Ray LaMontagne, Fiona Apple, Glen Hansard, The Naked And Famous, TV On The Radio.
Though many publications have already lauded last year’s festival with strong support, the essence of the this festival was probably best summed by my Mr. Vedder himself at last year’s festival:
Being able to hear music (maybe even live music) while you’re on a wave…we did that today…To invent something, that the people who had the very last row have the best seat in the house, ’cause they can see the ocean and see the music…I hope you like it as much as we hoped and thought you would.”
A portion of the proceeds from OHANA will benefit the San Onofre Parks Foundation, a California non-profit that cooperatively works with the California State Parks to develop, preserve and enhance the recreation and experience of California’s unique and beautiful coastal parks. OHANA is produced by Live Nation and Synergy Global Entertainment (SGE).
I think now would be a good time to schedule that vacation you’ve been longing for.
