What to expect?
For the last 20 years, the Doheny Blues Festival has created a festival environment like none other! Three alternating stages of blues, rock and soul music, legendary artists, a beachfront venue, microbrews, overnight camping, an eclectic vendor village and 20,000 music fans throughout the weekend! The nationally-recognized festival has welcomed a mix of music legends and rock headliners, and the 2017 lineup will not disappoint!
The layout of the festival offers something for everyone, as two main stages are placed at opposite ends of a large grass field, both within 100 yards of the Pacific Ocean. An intimate, third stage, known as The Backporch, is a great venue to get up-close to your favorite artists. There is also an International Food Court, Microbrew tastings and large Vendor Village. The grass field at the north end of the park (where the festival is held) includes 170 picnic tables, volleyball courts and ample parking.
Doheny State Beach, a 62-acre state park in scenic Dana Point Harbor, features one mile of whitewashed sandy beach. The City of Dana Point is named after Richard Henry Dana Jr. (1815-1882), a Harvard-trained lawyer, seaman, and author of the notable sea journal, “Two Years Before the Mast” (1840). In his journal, Dana documents his voyage from Boston to California on the merchant ship, Pilgrim, describing the area once known as Capistrano Bay as “the most romantic spot on the California coast.”
