Eddie Vedder Teams Up With Red Hot Chili Peppers & Mudhoney


Alternative Nation first broke the rumor over the weekend that Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and The Strokes would perform at the Ohana Festival in September in Dana Point, CA, and the news was confirmed today with an official announcement.

The Strokes will headline September 27th, while Eddie Vedder, Incubus, and Mudhoney will play on September 28th, and Red Hot Chili Peppers will close the festival on September 29th with Nathaniel Rateliff and The Night Sweats, Jenny Lewis, Jack Irons, and more.

Last year Vedder, Beck, Mumford and Sons, Eric Church, Norah Jones, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Johnny Mars, Young The Giant, and others played at Ohana. Vedder has run the Ohana festival since 2016, so this will be his fourth straight year headlining the show. Vedder has used the Ohana Festival as a platform to debut some of his only new music since Pearl Jam’s Lightning Bolt in 2013. In 2016 he debuted “Out of Sand” a year before it was officially released on the Twin Peaks soundtrack, and in 2017 he debuted a new song tentatively titled “Share The Light” that has yet to be officially released.

Vedder is also set to tour Europe this summer, and will headline the Innings Festival in Arizona on Sunday night.
