Yesterday LP played The Ohana Fest – special 3-day event supporting the efforts of maintaining the California Coastline with the lineup assembled by Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder. Ohana (meaning ‘family’ in Hawaiian), donates a portion of the proceeds to San Onofre Parks Foundation and The Doheny State Beach Interpretive Association.
These organizations are California non-profits that cooperatively work with the California State Parks to develop, preserve and enhance the recreation and experience of Southern California’s unique and beautiful coastal parks. That festival was known to me, as Lauren Ruth Ward played it last year. It was great to see that LP was included in this year’s line up, and on top of that she performed on the main stage!
We learnt about LP’s involvement in this event from the interview for KTLA 5, before her sold out show at The Wiltern back in March. In the interview LP chatted about her next SoCal gig and being hand-selected by Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder to play “Ohana Festival.” For video of that interview, click here.
As for the festival, so many familiar faces in the crowd, and so many beautiful quotes about LP’s show. @amartadventures: “What another absolutely spellbinding performance by LP at Ohana Fest! Fun fact, I actually bought my passes for Ohana while waiting in line for doors to open for her show back in my March when my amazing friends 76th Street opened for her.”
