Today, Eddie Vedder’s Ohana Festival announced Ohana Encore, the second weekend of Vedder’s one-of-a-kind festival experience at the beautiful and picturesque Doheny State Beach overlooking the Pacific Ocean of Southern California’s Dana Point. Ohana Encore will take place Saturday, October 8th – Sunday, October 9th and will be headlined by legendary and iconic artists Eddie Vedder, The Black Keys, Alanis Morissette, and Haim. The eclectic and diverse lineup for Ohana Encore also includes Band of Horses, The Roots, Rainbow Kitten Surprise, Julieta Venegas, Afghan Whigs, The Front Bottoms, Amos Lee, Amyl & The Sniffers, Marcus King, Iceage, Painted Shield, Pluralone, Hamilton Leithauser, Charlotte Lawrence, Illuminati Hotties, Trousdale, Seratones, Jaime Wyatt, and Jonny Roundhouse.

Established in 2016 by Vedder, Ohana has quickly become one of the most unique and magical festival experiences in recent years. As Variety declared after last year’s festival, “Not only did Ohana roar back to life with two headlining sets by Vedder and another by Pearl Jam, it actually grew into a second “encore” weekend headlined by Pearl Jam, setting the stage for further expansion in the future.” Beyond Ohana continuing its expansion, it is defining its future with its diverse and inclusive lineups, with over one third of the lineup featuring incredible female artists and musicians this year, including Alanis Morissette, Haim and Julieta Venegas during Ohana Encore to the legendary Stevie Nicks and P!nk, plus Brittany Howard, St. Vincent and more during the festival’s first weekend.
