Ohana Festival Announces 2023 Lineup

The three-day Eddie Vedder-curated music and art festival returns to Dana Point’s Doheny State Beach from September 29th – Oct 1st,  2023 for its seventh year.

Every fall for the past seven years, Doheny State Beach is where music lovers unite for the highly-anticipated Ohana Festival. The annual event is set to take place from September 29th to October 1st in the picturesque town of Dana Point, California, and this year’s lineup is one for the books. Foo Fighters, The Killers, and Eddie Vedder himself are set to headline. The Chicks, Haim, Father John Misty, Japanese Breakfast, Suki Waterhouse, The War On Drugs, and many more are set to hit the stage at the festival this fall. 

Also returning will be The Cove, an area within the festival where festival-goers can relax, enjoy, and learn. An area that combines music with activism, featuring panel discussions from leading conservationists, environmentalists, researchers, and professional surfers. The Cove also features a Charles R. Adler-curated art gallery that showcases a collection of pieces themed around music, surf, skate, and activism.

The daily lineup is solid. Friday brings The Killers to headline the festival, along with Haim, Father John Misty, and Japanese Breakfast. Saturday has Eddie Vedder and his all-star band, The Chicks, and The War On Drugs. Sunday sees the welcomed and highly-anticipated return of Foo Fighters to Southern California along with Pretenders, Rainbow Kitten Surprise, and The Back Seat Lovers.

The musical lineup doesn’t stop there. Ohana Festival and Eddie Vedder have curated an impressive array of supporting acts that will be performing throughout the three-day festival.

In addition to the live music performances, the festival will also feature a variety of food vendors, craft beer, and wine selections from local establishments, as well as a number of interactive art installations.

With such a diverse and impressive lineup, beautiful beaches, and temperate fall weather, the 2023 Ohana Festival promises to be an unforgettable experience for music fans from all over. Tickets go on sale soon and fans can sign up for a presale code on the festival website. This is a relatively small festival and it creates a high demand, the lineup is strong and tickets usually do not last long. It is a definite highlight on the Southern California concert calendar. Ohana is a weekend of great music, food, and fun in the sun at Doheny State Beach.

Ohana Festival is confident in its ability to draw fans. It is one of the few, if the only festival, that puts its cards on the table for all to see before asking for a commitment for early ticket purchase. A respectable practice and a nod to how much it cares for its fans. 

The 2023 Ohana Festival guarantees an unforgettable experience for music enthusiasts. It features a diverse and impressive lineup amidst beautiful beaches and pleasant fall weather. Fans and those interested should sign up for the presale code on the festival website, as this highly sought-after event is relatively small and tickets sell out quickly. Considered a definitive highlight on the Southern California concert calendar, Ohana is a weekend of music, food, and fun in the sun at Doheny State Beach. It is an extraordinary and unique Southern California Beach experience.
