The BeachLife Festival, Los Angeles’ first oceanfront multi-day music event, will hit the seaside community of Redondo Beach from May 3 – 5th.

The inaugural beach fest will feature headliners Willie Nelson & the Family Band, former Beach Boys frontman Brian Wilson, and Bob Weir and the Wolf Bros.  Curated by Jim Lindberg, lead singer of punk band Pennywise, the three-day event will see performances from over 40 acts including Ziggy Marley, Violent Femmes, X, As the Crow Flies featuring Chris Robinson, Jason Mraz, Slightly Stoopid, and Grace Potter. 


As a “content-first festival,” BeachLife will stream three days of live music while highlighting surf and skate culture and Southern California culinary delicacies from regional chefs.  “Side Stage,” a pop-up restaurant adjacent to the main stage, will serve artist-inspired menus. Yum, or YEW!

The antithesis of the Fyre festival, BeachLife will inhabit an 8.6-acre site that encompasses Seaside Lagoon (in Redondo) and an adjacent parking lot.  With the sun on your back, the ocean breeze on your face, sand beneath your feet, and a beautiful sunset on the horizon, there is no better setting for a weekend of live music in L.A., brah.
