While many music festivals get landlocked at some remote inland location, the city of Dana Point makes the exception every time with many musical events through out the year. Get ready for a weekend of live music on the picturesque coastline of Doheny Beach in Dana Point. Omega Events is bringing back the Doheny Days Music Festival, the same weekend that the city is hosting the Tall Ships Festival: September 8th and 9th of 2012. The event will be held at Doheny Beach - and will include many top musicians and bands on three different stages, eco exhibits, works from local artists with a huge vendor village, and many booths with food and beverages for purchase.
Headlining the 2012 festival on Saturday, September 8, will be legendary alt-rock group, Jane's Addiction. The band has written the rule book for alternative music and culture through a combination of genre-defying classic songs and a cinematic live experience. Their songs serve as the Ten Commandments for alt-rock, inspiring an entire generation of bands such as Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Pearl Jam and Tool. When the Los Angeles quartet came along, they merged alternative and rock like no one before, becoming the first alternative rock band, creating a new sound and attitude.

Doheny Days is produced by Omega Events, which has successfully operated 26 festivals at Doheny State Beach, including 9 years of Doheny Days (1997-2004 and 2011) and fifteen consecutive years of the internationally recognized Doheny Blues Festival.
Reggae, lots of green space to have a picnic or lay out in the sun, hanging out w/ friends, and being right next to the beach makes this event a must!
