Summer music festivals near L.A.
Kaaboo is returning to the Del Mar Racetrack and Fairgrounds with another eclectic lineup of adult alternative favorites—including Kings of Leon, Dave Matthews Band, Mumford & Sons and Duran Duran. The “mix-perience” (yep) comes with clean amenities, artisanal cuisine, fashion pop-ups and local artwork. Views of the main music stage can be enjoyed from a variety of vantage points: on a chaise lounge, in a pool, on a volleyball court or inside a premium cabana.
Bask in the glow of the blinking Las Vegas lights during this beautiful mess of a music festival. Eighteen city blocks become a playground for music lovers of all types at the genre-spanning Life is Beautiful. Embrace all of the things that are both wonderful and awful about Vegas trips and you’ll be rewarded with a fantastic lineup; the 2019 iteration includes Post Malone, Chance the Rapper, the Black Keys, Billie Eilish, Vampire Weekend, Zedd, Lil Wayne, Janelle Monae and more.
Eddie Vedder’s Ohana Festival once again lands at Doheny State Beach in Dana Point, with sets from the Strokes, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Tash Sultana, Incubus, Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats and Vedder himself. The fest’s name comes from the Hawaiian concept of family, and as such the beachfront festival will give back to its own community by donating a portion of proceeds to the San Onofre Parks Foundation and the Doheny State Beach Interpretive Association.
