Eddie Vedder brings his solo project to the Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival at Park At Harlinsdale Farm in Franklin, Tenn., Sept. 24.
Southern California festival Ohana shared the lineup for its fourth annual edition on Monday.
The Strokes, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Eddie Vedder — who curates Ohana — will headline the event, slated to take place from Sept. 27 to Sept. 29 at Doheny Beach in Dana Point, Calif.
Other announced acts include Tash Sultana, LP, Incubus, Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats, Devendra Banhart, White Reaper, Glen Hansard, Mudhoney, Jenny Lewis, Jacob Banks, Sunflower Bean, Benjamin Booker, Laura Jane Grace & the Devouring Mothers and Lukas Nelson & The Promise of the Real.
Although Vedder is booked as Ohana’s Saturday headliner, other appearances seem likely. In 2018, the charismatic Pearl Jam frontman took the stage with Mumford & Sons, Johnny Marr and John Doe Folk Trio over the course of the festival.

The Strokes, Eddie Vedder and Red Hot Chili Peppers will headline the 2019 Ohana Festival.
“Doheny was the spot where I caught my first waves as a kid,” Vedder said in a 2018 interview when discussing the festival’s location, which lies about halfway between Los Angeles and San Diego. “I had carried so many indelible memories of being nine and ten years old out there. […] It really came flooding back to me the day before the first show. My first time back since all those years ago. Looked just the same. Except we had some bleachers set up on the sand and a great sound system that you could hear while paddling in the line up.”
Last year’s Ohana lineup included Eric Church, Norah Jones, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Mumford & Sons and Beck. Although data for Ohana’s 2018 installment is unavailable, the festival’s first two years were successful, grossing $2.27 million and $2.80 million in 2016 and 2017, respectively.
In 2017, the Chili Peppers headlined festivals including Bonnaroo and Austin City Limits, but the beloved alt-rockers stayed off the festival circuit last year. The band played two Los Angeles gigs in January — and performed with Post Malone at the Grammys last month — but otherwise, their Ohana appearance is their only announced North American date for 2019.
The Strokes, meanwhile, add Ohana to a small list of shows representing their return from a two-year live hiatus this summer. They’ll also play London’s All Points East in May, New York’s Governors Ball in June and Spain’s Bilbao BBK Live in July.
Tickets for Ohana go on sale on March 8 at 10 a.m. PT.
