Driftwood Festival

Country Music Washes Ashore

Saturday, November 12 marks the debut of Driftwood at Doheny State Beach, an afternoon of music, craft beer, artisan wine and top-notch BBQ at the scenic Doheny State Beach in Dana Point. Festival attendees will roam throughout the lush grass areas of Doheny State Beach, right off the shore of the Pacific Ocean. 

Produced by premier music festival production company Synergy Global Entertainment (SGE), Orange partners Brew Ha Ha Productions, and California’s new country KFRG-FM (K-Frog), Driftwood at Doheny State Beach will feature tastings from over 100 craft beers and wines, some of the best BBQ in the region, as well as a full day of music with performances from Nashville hitmaker Jerrod Niemann, along with Rodney Atkins, Thompson Square, Parmalee, The White Buffalo, and Mariachi El Bronx.

Driftwood at Doheny State Beach kicks off at 12 p.m. Saturday for early entry guests. General admission to the festival starts at 1 p.m., with music lasting until 8 p.m. Festival attendees 21 and over will enjoy complimentary adult beverage tastings from 1 to 4 p.m. Tastings are included with the price of admission. VIP tickets and artist Meet & Greets are also available on a limited basis.

A portion of the festival’s proceeds will be donated to the San Onofre Parks Foundation — a California non-profit that partners with the California State Parks to develop, preserve and enhance the recreation and experience of California’s unique and beautiful coastal parks — and the Doheny State Beach Interpretive Association (DSBIA), the non-profit cooperating association of Doheny State Beach, dedicated to the protection of the park’s beaches, facilities, marine refuge and its historical, cultural and social stories.

The festival will also debut the Country Strong veteran appreciation area for non-profits that support and create awareness for veterans causes.  For more information, visit
