Bob Weir, Willie Nelson, Brian Wilson Headline 3-Day LA Music Extravaganza
When Saint Rocke owner Allen Sanford said he would like to bring a different kind of music festival to the Los Angeles South Bay Beach Cities, he was not kidding.
When the lineup for the inaugural BeachLife Festival was announced, it was a rub-the-eyes, check-what-I’m-drinking moment. That is because the three-day event is bringing in legendary acts to Seaside Lagoon the weekend of May 3-5. Among the artists are Bob Weir, Willie Nelson and Brian Wilson.
And that’s just the headliners. In all, there are 35 bands on three stages
This is something never before seen in the area and at a level never before experienced, either. This is – with the bands and ticket prices – the Beach Cities equivalent of Coachella. Or really, considering the bands, more along the lines of Stagecoach.
Here’s the complete lineup of the bands.
Friday, May 3
Bob Weir & Wolf Brothers
As The Crow Flies
Bruce Hornsby & The Noise Makers
Roots Of Creation
Clayton Joseph Scott
Saturday, May 4
Brian Wilson w/Al Jardine & Blondie Chaplin
His Eyes Have Fangs
Sunday, May 5
Willie Nelson & Family
Colin Hay (Of Men At Work)
Keller Williams Grateful Grass
The Hollow Legs
The event will feature three stages, food trucks and, of particular interest to those in the South Bay, bars with spirits, beers and wines.
A three-day ticket is $249. The two-day tickets sold out even before the full lineup was announced in January. The three-day VIP is $795 and a Captain’s Pass is $2,000. There are no single-day tickets. That is something else new with South Bay music festivals.
