The event is being organized by the owner of Hermosa Beach's Saint Rocke and his business partner.

The BeachLife Festival, L.A.'s first-ever coastal music festival, will take place May 3-5 at the Seaside Lagoon in Redondo Beach.

This year's headliners are former Beach Boys frontman Brian Wilson, Grateful Dead veteran Bob Weir and country music icon Willie Nelson. The three pioneer headliners will be joined on the bill by Ziggy Marley, Violent Femmes, Steel Pulse, Grace Potter and more. A complete lineup is available below.

“We’ve painstakingly curated this lineup to capture what we believe is the unique spirit of BeachLife,” reads a statement from co-founders Allen Sanford and Rob Lissner. Sanford is the owner of the popular Saint Rock nightclub in Hermosa Beach, and Sanford and Lissner are the brains behind LiveList, a tech platform to stream live music performances around the world.

The festival will also feature an innovative 50-seat, pop-up restaurant on the main stage with reservations starting at $150, available to be booked March 1. Organizers say the Side Stage concept will "give festival-goers access to an unprecedented upscale dining experience "just feet from headliner performances." The festival will also feature a Beyond Side Stage area with a curated wine village, a massive craft beer bar focused on LA breweries and food by celebrity chef David LeFevre.

Three-day passes are on sale now with general admission passes starting at $249 and VIP passes at $795. The Captain’s Pass, which includes backstage access, complimentary alcoholic beverages and valet parking is $2,000 and a porttion of ticket sales will be donated to local charities. More at
