Eddie Vedder’s Ohana Festival in Dana Point, CA was evacuated for an hour or so on Friday afternoon due to rare lightening and rain in the area.

“Due to lightening in the area, we are evacuating the venue and pausing the show. We expect to open up fully, shortly as the storm is passing quickly. Please continue to follow social media and we will let you know when it’s safe to re-enter.”

Later, Ohana announced, “We are pleased to announce that it is safe to re-enter the festival grounds. In the spirit of Ohana, please remember to be safe and respectful to your fellow festival goers.

Welcome back!” Vedder is headlining at 10PM, replacing Kings of Leon, who were forced to pull out due to their mother’s illness.

Vedder is also set to headline tomorrow night, while Pearl Jam will headline on Sunday for their first performance in Southern California since fall 2013. Pearl Jam just played their comeback gig at the Sea.Hear.Now. festival in New Jersey, 3 years after their last performances on The Home and Away Shows 2018 North American tour.
