Ohana Festival Has Announced Its 2018 Lineup

Mumford & Sons


In Southern California, we have so many festivals, we don’t count them anymore, I certainly don’t, and after Coachella, Stage Coach, Arroyo Seco, the FYF Fest, Desert Daze, Lightning in a Bottle, Hard Summer, The Growlers (Beach Goth), Music Tastes Good, Kaaboo, Cal Jam – and I am ignoring these mini fests that regularly pop up at one of our favorite clubs – we have plenty of opportunities to attend a music festival. Despite this long list, there’s still a special niche for Ohana festival which is happening between September 28th and 30th at Doheny State Beach in Dana Point.

The fest has just announced its 3-day line up, showing a strong indie flavor with some artists we have seen at Arroyo Seco last year (Mumford & Sons are headlining Sunday night) or at the Growlers 6 (Yeah Yeah Yeah are playing on Saturday night) but over all it demonstrates an independent personality. If Coachella was hip hop at 60% (at the top of my head), you will not see this genre very represented in Ohana’s line up, which gives a large place to country, alt country and folk as Eric Church headlines Friday night, after Nikki Lane, Amos Lee, John Doe and the White Buffalo.

Of course, alt-rock is the piece de resistance at Ohana with Eddie Vedder headlining Saturday night (the Pearl Jam frontman launched the festival with pro surfer Kelly Slater in 2016), Beck playing before Mumford & Sons on Sunday, and many other interesting acts including Liz Phair, Johnny Marr, Bahamas, Norah Jones, Young the Giant, and a few local favorites such as Nombe, Lauren Ruth Ward and Plague Vendor.

This year, the Festival has made a move to the end of September, and tickets go on sale Friday, May 4 at 10:00 AM (PT) at Single day GA passes start at $99.75, weekend GA passes are $275, single day VIP passes are $499.00, and VIP weekend passes are $1,200, with fees added to all prices.

However, like the previous years, a portion of the proceeds benefit the San Onofre Parks Foundation, a California non-profit that works with the California State Parks to develop, preserve and enhance parks around the state. Look at the complete Ohana festival line up below:
