The festival, which was co-founded by former North County resident Vedder, celebrates its fifth anniversary this year
Pearl Jam lead singer and rhythm guitarist Eddie Vedder will do double-duty at the fifth annual Ohana Festival in Dana Point, where he will perform this fall with the band and on his own.
Kings of Leon are the third headliner for this year’s edition of the three-day festival, which takes place at Doheny State Beach between Sept. 25 and Sept. 27. The festival was co-founded by Vedder, who grew up in nearby in San Diego’s North County.
Kings of Leon will headline on Sept. 25, Vedder on Sept. 26 and Pearl Jam on Sept. 27. For fans in San Diego and Southern California unable to nab tickets to Pearl Jam’s sold-out April 13 Gigaton Tour concert at San Diego State University’s Viejas Arena, Ohana may provide a nearby option.

The other confirmed acts for this year’s festival include Dermot Kennedy, Durand Jones & The Indications, CAAMP, The Frames, EOB (Ed O’Brien of Radiohead), Yola, Mon Laferte, Sharon Van Etten, Gang of Youths, Inhaler, Jade Bird and Cavetown.
