The Strokes, Eddie Vedder + Red Hot Chili Peppers Headlining 2019 Ohana Festival
Eddie Vedder, The Strokes and Red Hot Chili Peppers are among the artists headlining the fourth annual Ohana Festival. The three-day event will take place September 27-29, 2019 at Doheny State Beach in Dana Point, Calif.
The fest is curated by Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder and has become known for its unexpected collaborations. In the 2018 edition, Vedder performed with Johnny Marr, Mumford and Sons and Liz Phair. Back in 2017, he joined Social Distortion for a memorable rendition of "Ball and Chain."
Prior to last year’s event, Vedder shared his thoughts on curating a music festival. “It’s been a true honor to work with the community and organizers to create a stimulating vibe and uplifting atmosphere for the great crowds and incredible musicians who come out to play in the park,” he said. Vedder also shared that having artists like the Pixies, X, Mudhoney, Jack Johnson play the festival has been “so satisfying” and “far beyond our initial vision for it all.”
The 2019 Ohana Festival will feature more than 25 artists including Incubus, Nathanial Rateliff & the Night Sweats, Lukas Nelson & The Promises of The Real, Mudhoney, Laura Jane Grace and the Devouring Mothers, Glen Hansard, Jenny Lewis, Devendra Banhart, Donavon Frankenreiter and more.
The Strokes will headline opening night on Sept. 27, playing alongside Tash Sultana, LP, Devendra Banhart, White Reaper, Sunflower Bean, Dustin Kensrue, Jesse Jo Stark, L.A. Witch and Fontaines D.C.
Vedder closes out the Saturday bill (Sept. 28), with Incubus, Glen Hansard, Mudhoney, Donovan Frankenreiter, Benjamin Booker, Laura Jane Grace and the Devouring Mothers, the Messthetics, Madison Ryann Ward, Ryan Cauthen, Erin Rae and Jonny Roundhouse also set to play.
