BeachLife Festival

An eclectic beach-focused lineup of more than 55 top music artists across the spectrum of rock, indie, jam, reggae, and more has been announced for the 3rd edition of BeachLife Festival, Los Angeles County’s only coastal three-day immersive experience uniquely celebrating beach culture. Held May 13-15, 2022, Southern California’s premier live music, art, and culinary experience takes place on the picturesque waterfront in Redondo Beach, CA.

It took 26 months for the second “annual” BeachLife Festival to transpire, September 10-12, but the Covid-19-includes delay only strengthened the shindig’s vision and spirit to deliver a celebratory tip of the cap to the Los Angeles South Bay seaside’s musical and lifestyle identity. The weekend’s music exemplified many genres, but there was a decidedly distinct number of post-punk rock and alt-pop bands who first blazed their ways to glory in the late ‘80s/early ‘90s.

Late-night “Afterparty” performances have been announced for the BeachLife Festival. Among the late-night music purveyors of particular interest to Grateful Web readers include renowned Southern California bands Cubensis and The Higgs. On Saturday, The Higgs, whose mission is “Melting faces. Blowing minds. Cerebral jams for the masses,” will jam out post-fest at Samba By the Sea on the waterfront in the Redondo Beach Marina, just a few steps away from the festival site.

BeachLife Festival is excited to announce their return in 2021. The ‘first of its kind’ coastal event in Los Angeles is happening September 10-12, 2021 on Redondo Beach’s Watefront, after multiple postponements due to the COVID-19 pandemic. BeachLife Festival was created to celebrate the Southern California beach lifestyle, where live music is synonymous with sunshine and toes in the sand.

The BeachLife Festival, a first-of-its-kind event celebrating Southern California’s unique beach lifestyle, has just announced a wave of lineup additions for its second annual event happening May 1-3, 2020. Sublime with Rome, Colbie Caillat, King Yellowman, Long Beach Dub Allstars, Tomorrow’s Bad Seeds, and more will join a previously announced bill stacked with artists who embody California’s iconic beach culture.

The BeachLife Festival has added a new stage to its already packed programming for their second annual event happening this May 1-3, 2020. The Speakeasy Stage presented by Jack Daniels will welcome rock legends and Southern California punk staples alike to perform stripped-down versions from their catalogs for an intimate experience that can only be found at BeachLife.

The BeachLife Festival is proud to announce its return to Redondo Beach, CA’s Seaside Lagoon with another exciting musical lineup featuring artists who embody Southern California’s iconic beach culture. Steve Miller Band, Counting Crows, and Ziggy Marley & Stephen Marley’s Bob Marley Celebration will headline the three-day immersive music, art, and culinary oceanside event happening May 1-3, 2020. Additional artists appearing include UB40 feat.

Illustrious musicians from the vanguard to the nostalgic, some of who began plying their craft in the ‘60s, and others who are poised for big recognition in the 2020s, all shared a distinctive Southern California seaside aesthetic at the inaugural BeachLife Festival May 3 to 5. BeachLife, the biggest fest ever to blast its jukebox along the Santa Monica Bay at Redondo Beach, combined sun, sounds, sand, and surf and passed its acid test with flying colors.

It was a good day. Redondo Beach, California’s, inaugural BeachLife Festival got off to a splendid start on Friday, May 3, with Bob Weir, Chris Robinson, Slightly Stoopid, and Steel Pulse leading the way, and the undercard featuring lots of roots-reggae rock, all of which colorfully defined the SoCal beach vibe. Cool breezes from the adjacent Santa Monica Bay and the Pacific Ocean kept temperatures in the 60s while the early May SoCal sun beamed down on several thousand rosy-faced attendees.

Esteemed headliners Bob Weir and Wolf Brothers, Willie Nelson & Family, and Beach Boys’ Brian Wilson, are among the biggest names to perform at the inaugural BeachLife Festival, set for May 3 to 5 at Seaside Lagoon, Redondo Beach, a city of about 67,000, nestled nicely in the south end of Los Angeles County’s Santa Monica Bay.
