Eddie Vedder, Social Distortion Lead Second Annual Ohana Festival
After a successful first year, the Ohana Festival returns to Dana Point, Calif. this September for a second year. Eddie Vedder, who headlined last year's festival, will return in one of the headline spots, as the festival moves to a three-day event. Social Distortion and Jack Johnson will headline the other two dates.
The festival takes place at the Doheny State Beach in Dana Point, Calif. on Sept. 8-10 and like last year's event, a portion of the proceeds from the festival will aid 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.
Speaking at last year's event, Vedder stated, "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."
Social Distortion will headline the opening day on Friday, Sept. 8 with support from Pixies, TV on the Radio, the Orwells, Simon Townsend, Jade Jackson and Corey Harper. Eddie Vedder will headline on Saturday, Sept. 9 with support from Ray Lamontagne, Fiona Apple, Glen Hansard, The Frights, Liam Finn, Ella Vos, Conner Youngblood and Missio. The festival closes on Sunday, Sept. 10 with Jack Johnson playing after Haim, The Naked and Famous, Dr. Dog, Verite, Cameron Avery, Timmy Curran and The Mattson 2.
Tickets for the festival will go on sale this Friday (March 17) at 10AM PT at the Ohana Festival website. General admission single day tickets start at $99.50, while weekend passes are going for $275. There are also VIP passes available, so be sure to check the Ohana Festival website for details.
