Ohana Festival //
Doheny State Beach – Dana Point, CA
September 29th-October 1st, 2023 //

It’s that time again, Ohana fam.

The three-day festival founded by Eddie Vedder returns to Doheny State Beach for its seventh edition after making a splash last year with Stevie Nicks, Eddie Vedder, Jack White and P!nk headlining, and unlike previous installments, 2023 will boast a pair of headliners each day for the very first time as the calendar shifts from September to October.

Riding into Day 1 will be The Killers and HAIM, who were booked for the fest’s 2022 “Encore” session until it was canceled, plus a stellar undercard featuring Father John Misty, Japanese Breakfast, Franc Moody, Glen Hansard, Hermanos Gutiérrez and Amos Lee on Friday.

Saturday once again sees Vedder leadding the way, but this time he will have some solid help from The Chicks as the country stars make their debut appearance at Ohana Festival. And for those who want to rock out beforehand, you definitely won’t want to miss noteworthy sets by Grammy winners The War on Drugs and jam-band favorites Goose.

Putting a bow on the weekend, meanwhile, will be Foo Fighters and Pretenders at the top of Sunday’s bill following performances by Rainbow Kitten Surprise, The Backseat Lovers, Suki Waterhouse, Thee Sacred Souls and more earlier in the day. See the poster above for the rest of the artists scheduled to take the stage in Dana Point.

Tickets can be purchased starting this Thursday, April 13th at 10 a.m. PT during the festival’s presale, but you must sign up here to receive a presale code if you want to reserve your spot! Both three-day and single-day GA passes will go for $479 and $169, respectively, with three-day and single-day VIP admission available for $1,499 and $549. Of course, there’s also the three-day Ultimate VIP option if you and a friend (it’s a two-person package) have a cool $9,950 in your festival budget to shell out.

Ohana Festival - updated 2023 lineup

UPDATE (May 23rd): Ohana has announced that Rainbow Kitten Surprise will no longer be performing in 2023 and have been replaced on Sunday by Deaf Charlie featuring Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament and former Fitz and the Tantrums drummer John Wicks. Peep the updated poster above for the latest lineup.

SF Show of the Week // GO4FREE to Hot Chip (DJ set) at Mezzanine 11/22 (WED)

Hot Chip feat. Felix Martin, Joe Goddard//
Mezzanine – San Francisco

Since forming in 2000 and releasing their debut EP Mexico, Hot Chip have remained one of today’s most distinctive and innovative bands with the way they combine indie and dance music in a refreshing manner. In addition to being known for their exciting, upbeat DJ sets and one-of-a-kind live performances, the London outfit has put out six studio albums, two mixed LPs, and both national and international radio mixes.

While Mexico launched the septet to stardom, frontman Alexis Taylor’s dreamy falsettos and Joe Goddard’s gruff vocals, plinky pianos and hypnotic, pulse-like techno beats have drawn more and more fans in worldwide. Each and every Hot Chip show feels unique, as the band’s members reinvent their original studio compositions and form an intense live improvisation that creates an energetic atmosphere.

Over the last 17 years, Hot Chip have performed in front of thousands at major music festivals like Coachella, Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits. The group has also received its fair share of accolades and recognition, including a Mercury Prize nomination for The Warning in 2006, a Grammy nomination for “Ready for the Floor” in 2009 and most recently, two Virgin Media Music award nominations in 2010.

Hot Chip released their sixth and most recent LP Why Make Sense? in 2015, reuniteing them with In Our Heads producer Mark Ralph as they explored a variety of sounds, from 90’s R&B to disco to post-punk.

This Wednesday, celebrate Thanksgiving one day early with a special extended DJ set from Felix Martin and Joe Goddard of Hot Chip. Tickets are available for $20, or you could win a pair of tickets by submitting your full name and email below.
