Eddie Vedder performs at Ohana on Sept. 28, 2019. The musician will perform headlining sets solo and with Pearl Jam at this year’s festival.

Ohana Festival will once again rock the shores of Doheny State Beach in Dana Point, Calif., this fall.

The festival will descend on the town, just down the coast from Los Angeles, for its fifth annual edition Sept. 25-27, with a lineup topped by Pearl Jam, Eddie Vedder and Kings Of Leon.

Other artists on the bill include My Morning Jacket, Maggie Rogers, Pretenders, Mac DeMarco (solo), Durand Jones & the Indications, EOB (the side project of Radiohead’s Ed O’Brien), Broken Social Scene, Real Estate and recent Pollstar cover stars Yola and Sharon Van Etten.

Ohana returns to Doheny State Beach this September with Pearl Jam, Eddie Vedder, Kings of Leon and more.

“Doheny was the spot where I caught my first waves as a kid,” Vedder, who curates Ohana, said in a 2018 interview. “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 Vedder, The Strokes, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Incubus and Jenny Lewis. Although data for Ohana’s 2018 and 2019 installments is unavailable, the festival’s first two years were successful, grossing $2.27 million and $2.80 million in 2016 and 2017, respectively.

Ohana 2020 will continue a massive year for Vedder and Pearl Jam. The band hits the road later this month for an arena tour that will take it to major North American arenas, concluding with two shows at Oakland’s Oakland Arena April 18-19. Pearl Jam will head overseas in June and July for several European arena and festival plays.

Amid all that, the band, which was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2017, will release Gigaton, its first album in more than six years, on March 27.

Ohana tickets go on sale on March 13.
