After a successful launch in 2016 with more than 22,000 attendees, an array of impromptu pairings from the festival’s artists and perfect beachside weather, OHANA DANA POINT will return to Doheny State Beach in Dana Point, CA September 8-10. The line-up for the expanded three-day second annual event will include performances from Social Distortion, Eddie Vedder, Jack Johnson, Pixies, Haim, Ray LaMontagne, Fiona Apple, Glen Hansard, The Naked And Famous, TV On The Radio and more than 25 acts (full 2017 line-up is below).
Eddie Vedder captured the essence of the event, saying from the stage: “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.” And initial media response to the inaugural OHANA applauded the creation of a festival with strong support from the acts on the bill, many of whom spent the day at the festival and joined their contemporaries onstage.
The DOHENY DANA POINT 2017 line-up is as follows: Social Distortion, Eddie Vedder, Jack Johnson, Pixies, Ray Lamontagne, Haim, Fiona Apple, Glen Hansard, The Naked and Famous, TV On The Radio, Dr. Dog, The Orwells, The Frights, Vérité, Cameron Avery, Conner Youngblood, Simon Townshend, Missio, Ella Vos, The Mattson 2, Liam Finn, Timmy Curran, Jade Jackson and Corey Harper.
