The Pacific Festival is back, and the date is set for Sunday, September 2nd, 2012! This year, expect a new cool venue… The Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort and Marina, which is located on the water’s edge of the Pacific Ocean, and promises to bring a whole new vibe!
Last year’s event was held at Oak Canyon Ranch near Irvine Lake. Snoop Dogg was the official festival headliner and was joined with over 50 of independent music’s most talented live acts and DJs from around the world. Five stages housed the likes of: Cut Copy, Black Lips, The Twelves, Fred Falke, Adam Salter, and special dueling decks set by Calvin Harris and Steve Aoki himself. This year’s line-up is still to be announced.
Like last year, The Dunes will showcase favorite live music acts, mix of genres, not covering just dance music or just indie rock. There will also be the best local foods and lots of other surprises that organizers will be announcing closer to this year’s event on Labor Day Weekend.
Pacific Festival Entertainment is the vision of two groups of longtime friends with a combined 40 years of experience in music and event production. Steve Aoki, world-renowned DJ and founder of Dim Mak Records, and Mike Tunney, founder of Collaborative Media, have been friends for over 25 years, growing up together in Newport Beach. As their first business venture, Aoki and Tunney wanted to create a new music and arts festival for the Orange County community that connects culture with community; art with music; and entertainment with philanthropy, thus successfully launching the festival just last year.
Dawn Patrol pre-sale tickets are on-sale now for Pacific Festival. Organizers are releasing a limited batch of discounted General Admission tickets at $40 for loyal friends and fans. This year’s event will have 1 main stage and support entertainment areas. Tickets to this year’s event are limited and will be priced at $55-$75. 18+ age for admission.
