The DOHENY DAYS Music Festival returns to the whitewashed sandy beaches of South Orange County on September 8th & 9th. The festival features an eclectic mix of music and embraces the eco-conscious beach/surf culture of SoCal. Over the weekend, festival goers enjoy 20+ sets of music on three different stages, eco-friendly attractions, tasty food & drink selections, and a huge vendor village.
Headlining the 2012 festival on Saturday, September 8, will be legendary alt-rock group, Jane's Addiction. The band has written the rule book for alternative music and culture through a combination of genre-defying classic songs and a cinematic live experience. Their songs serve as the Ten Commandments for alt-rock, inspiring an entire generation of bands such as Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Pearl Jam and Tool. When the Los Angeles quartet came along, they merged alternative and rock like no one before, becoming the first alternative rock band, creating a new sound and attitude.
Also appearing at Doheny Days will be The Flaming Lips, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Rebelution and Beats Antique. The festival will feature three stages of roots, rock, reggae and funk music with additional acts will be announced in the coming weeks.
Doheny Days is produced by Omega Events, which has successfully operated 26 festivals at Doheny State Beach, including 9 years of Doheny Days (1997-2004 and 2011) and fifteen consecutive years of the internationally recognized Doheny Blues Festival.
