Ohana Festival was founded by Vedder in 2106 and has boasted performances from the likes of Pearl Jam, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Strokes, Mumford & Sons, Stevie Nicks, and more over the years. Last year, Variety called the event “the best-curated boutique festival in America.”
A portion of the proceeds from the event benefits the Doheny State Beach Foundation and the San Onofre Parks Foundation, plus participating charities like Surfrider Foundation – South OC Chapter, WSL PURE, Unidos South OC, Los Cerritos Wetlands Land Trust, Rob Machado Foundation, Everytown Gun Control, Music Preserves, Sea Legacy, and more.
As well as the music line-up, this year’s edition of the festival will feature the one-of-a-kind area within the festival dubbed The Cove, which combines the power of music and activism and will host thought-provoking panel discussions from leading conservationists, environmentalists, researchers, and professional surfers on the Storyteller’s Stage. The area is also home to an art gallery curated by Charles R. Adler, where an expansive collection of unique pieces around music, surf, skate, and activism will be showcased.
Alongside Ohana Festival 2023, Foo Fighters has also confirmed details of six new headline shows to take place on either side of the festival. The band, who will return to the stage in May for the first time since drummer Taylor Hawkins’ death, have added stops in Spokane, WA, Salt Lake City, UT, Stateline, NV, Virginia Beach, VA, Phoenix, AZ, and El Paso, TX, between August and October.
