The BeachLife Festival, Los Angeles’ first oceanfront multi-day festival event, just keeps getting better! BeachLife is proud to announce the addition of Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Jason Mraz, Southern California reggae-rock favorites Slightly Stoopid, indie-folk trailblazers Dawes, easy-going jam-rockers Big Head Todd and The Monsters, plus reggae rising stars Tomorrow’s Bad Seeds, and tropical songstress Anuhea, to accompany the already stacked lineup of artists performing the weekend of May 3-5, 2019. The artist additions will join previously announced legendary music headliners Brian Wilson (founding member of the Beach Boys) with guests Al Jardine and Blondie Chaplin, Bob Weir and Wolf Bros., and Willie Nelson and Family along with Ziggy Marley, Violent Femmes, Steel Pulse, Grace Potter, Blues Traveler, Bruce Hornsby, Everclear, Chevy Metal, Sugar Ray, and Donavon Frankenreiter, and many more for an immersive festival experience celebrating the legacy and culture of Southern California’s iconic beach lifestyle. A confirmed lineup of announced artists is below. GA, VIP, and top-level Captain’s passes are available now and open for purchase here.
Slightly Stoopid’s performance at BeachLife comes with great anticipation of their first US Acoustic Roots set. The band, best known for their lively and energetic presence on stage, have planned an exclusive acoustic set for BeachLife attendees. The Ocean Beach-based ensemble will perform stripped-down versions of classics from the Stoopid repertoire, including a collection of songs from their live album release, Acoustic Roots, which the band just debuted at a recent performance in Mexico. “It’s the first time in 20 years since [Acoustic Roots] was released that we did that,” says original member and frontman Miles Doughty. “So if you’d like to hear it, come to The BeachLife Festival.”
Chevy Metal, featuring Taylor Hawkins of the Foo Fighters, has also confirmed an unique set for BeachLife guests. The three-piece cover band, which Hawkins calls “your backyard keg party on steroids”, are recognized for playing lesser-known songs by ZZ Top, Aerosmith, Deep Purple, Queen, Black Sabbath, and other hard rock pioneers. They will be performing an entire set of Van Halen tracks in honor of the California-based glam metal ensemble exclusively for BeachLife.
BeachLife is currently in production of exclusive content highlighting its connection to, and passion for, California’s acclaimed beach culture. As a “content-first festival,” BeachLife and its participants are committed to capturing and providing fans behind-the-scenes interviews and performances leading up to the festival. During the event, The BeachLife Festival will broadcast three days of West Coast drenched live music; plus, highlights of California culinary delicacies from regional chefs including a “Side Stage” pop-up restaurant serving artist-inspired menus; beach lifestyle activities and demonstrations featuring visual art, skateboarding, and surfing components; as well as scenes of an unbeatable coastal location. 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 California lifestyle enjoyment; even if it’s enjoyed from the comfort of your couch.
