Taken from the Hawaiian word for extended family, Ohana will be hosted at Dohney State Beach in Dana Point with performances that also include Band of Horses, X, Cat Power, Mudhoney and Corinne Bailey Rae, among others.
The festival will donate a portion of its proceeds to the San Onofre Parks Foundation, a California non-profit that works towards the preservation for state parks. There will also be a fundraising luau on the eve of the opening day hosted by Jeff Ross and with music by the John Doe Experience.
“Ohana brings together a very unique collection of music and culture in a setting that could not be any more beautiful,” said Rich Best, Live Nations’ president of booking for Los Angeles, in the Los Angeles Times. “It’s something very different than anything happening in today’s festivals.”
Organizers also said that the festival is designed with a celebration in surf culture and ocean themes. More information on featured attractions will be coming soon.
