Ohana Festival Announces 2024 Lineup

The jewel of California art and music festivals returns to Doheny State Beach in Dana Point, CA for the eighth year this September.  

Surf’s up and the Cali vibes are good! Ohana Festival is returning to Doheny State Beach in Dana Point, CA on September 27-29th. Pearl Jam, Neil Young, and Crazy Horse will be headlining this year’s installment. The lineup guarantees a weekend of iconic rock royalty, alt-rock anthems, and up-and-coming stars.

Pearl Jam, Eddie Vedder’s own grunge legends, will headline both opening and closing nights, ensuring a full dose of their iconic stage shows. But the menu of legends doesn’t stop there. Legendary rocker Neil Young, backed by his longtime band/collaborators Crazy Horse, will take center stage on the Saturday evening. 2024 sees Neil Young and Crazy Horse together for the first time since a handful of shows in 2018.

Beyond the headliners, the Ohana Festival boasts a captivating undercard. Alt-rock goddesses Alanis Morissette, the queen of 90s alt-rock, and Shirley Manson of Garbage, another influential force from that era, will deliver their signature blend of alternative rock and industrial grit.

Carrying on Eddie Vedder’s tradition of eclectic curation and diversity in music, Ohana Festival has something for everyone. For those seeking a dose of classic alternative, The Breeders and Crowded House offer a journey through the formative years of the genre. Meanwhile, Americana enthusiasts won’t want to miss Turnpike Troubadours, while fans of contemporary country music can catch Maren Morris’ blend of country, pop, R&B, and hip-hop.

Looking for a taste of something new? Each year Ohana Festival goes deep beyond established names, offering a platform for exciting discoveries. IDLES, the British post-punk outfit, will bring their raw energy, while Black Pumas blend soul and psychedelia for a truly unique sound. Jenny Lewis and Cat Power (performing a special Dylan tribute set) add further depth to the lineup.

This is just a taste of the incredible lineup Ohana Festival 2024 has in store. With additional acts like Kim Gordon, Glen Hansard, Gabriels, Ibibio Sound Machine, La Lom, and even Dogstar – the band featuring iconic Hollywood actor Keanu Reeves – there’s something for everyone.

Ohana Festival always delivers a weekend of musical exploration where legendary artists share the stage with tomorrow’s stars. The sensory magic is all set against the stunning backdrop of Doheny State Beach, one of the most unique and beautiful environments under the California sun. 

A wide variety of tickets and packages go on pre-sale this Thursday, April 25th at 10 AM PT. Don’t miss your chance to be part of this unforgettable weekend celebrating music, art, storytelling, education, community, and the California dream.
