There are also tons of delicious food options and intriguing cocktails, with contemporary art and late-night dance parties.
Ohana Music Festival will return for the third year to the sandy shores of Doheny State Beach in Dana Point on September 28-30. This year headliners include Eric Church, Eddie Vedder, Mumford & Sons, Norah Jones, Beck and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Other notable acts include Switchfoot, Young the Giant, Liz Phair, Johnny Marr, Amos Lee, Nikki Lane, and others.
This three-day event offers single day or weekend passes and a limited number of VIP passes are still available, which offer lounge seating, hammocks, complimentary food and drinks, and private restrooms.

In addition to a full weekend of diverse music, Ohana is donating a portion of the proceeds to the San Onofre Foundation, a non-profit organization who works with the California State Parks to develop, preserve, and enhance California coastal parks.
