Ohana Festival announces its 2023 dates in Dana Point
The three-day Eddie Vedder-curated fest will return for its seventh year at Doheny State Beach.
Taking place at Dana Point, California, Ohana Festival thrives off pairing good music with good vibes. Half of the proceeds earned at Ohana each year benefit a local non-profit that aims to preserve and maintain the magic of California’s coastal parks. Keeping in tune with Ohana’s premise, the lineup showcases the best of indie, surfer rock, and alternative music.
Festival producers Live Nation announced that the Eddie Vedder-curated Ohana Festival will return in 2023, once again taking over Doheny State Beach in Dana Point for the three-day event Sept. 29-Oct. 1. Though a lineup has yet to be revealed, fans can sign up for advance notice of the bill and ticket information at ohanafest.com.
Since 2016, Ohana has featured a variety of musicians and performers, artists, surfers, ocean conservationists and more. Last year, the event included headlining performances by Stevie Nicks, Vedder and Pink along with sets from Jack White, Billy Strings, Brittany Howard, Manchester Orchestra, St. Vincent, Grouplove and many more.
Since its inception, Ohana has had a sharp focus on ocean and beach conservation and sustainability with carefully curated programming on the festival’s Storytellers Stage. The area includes an ever-growing collection of exhibits, panel discussions with conservationists, environmentalists, researchers and professional surfers happening throughout the festival. There’s also multiple organizations with booths set up providing information, hands-on education, collecting donations and signing up volunteers for local beach cleanups and more.
