Willie Nelson, Brian Wilson and More to Play SoCal Festival in Celebration of Beach Culture
More than 40 musical acts will perform on three stages for new weekend-long event this spring.
The BeachLife Festival announced its 2019 music lineup for a first-of-its-kind coastal event in Los Angeles happening May 3-5 at Redondo Beach’s Seaside Lagoon. The three-day immersive experience celebrating Southern California beach culture will feature iconic headliners Brian Wilson, Bob Weir and Willie Nelson performing oceanside, along with artists who are synonymous with SoCal “beach life” including Ziggy Marley, Violent Femmes, Steel Pulse, Grace Potter, Bruce Hornsby, Everclear, Chevy Metal, Sugar Ray, Donavon Frankenreiter and many more.
“We’ve painstakingly curated this lineup to capture what we believe is the unique spirit of BeachLife, bringing together a mix of legendary icons, headlining touring bands and emerging artists who all in some way represent our Southern California beach lifestyle,” says Allen Sanford, co-founder of The BeachLife Festival, with co-founder Rob Lissner, who also founded LiveList, a Venice-based tech platform that streams live music performances around the world.
Designed to embrace SoCal’s coastal essence where live music is synonymous with sand in your toes and a cold drink in hand, The BeachLife Festival will feature California culinary stars and multiple surf and skateboarding components in addition to the 40 musical acts.
Three-day passes are on sale now on the BeachLife website. General admission passes are currently $249 and VIP passes are $795. The Captain’s Pass, which includes additional perks like backstage access, complimentary alcoholic beverages, and valet parking is $2,000.
