Sting, Incubus, Devo, My Morning Jacket Booked for BeachLife Festival

by NEW YORK DIGITAL NEWS


Sting, Incubus, Devo, and My Morning Jacket will shake the sands of Redondo Beach, California’s waterfront, this spring at the fifth installment of the BeachLife Festival. Other performers include Seal, Dirty Heads, Local Natives, Santigold, Trey Anastasio, Fleet Foxes, ZZ Top, and Courtney Barnett. Tickets for the three-day fest, which kicks off May 3, are available now.

The lineup spans a variety of genres, including reggae (Steel Pulse, Pepper), punk (performances by members of the Vandals, All, 7 Seconds), and mambo (Tito Puente Jr.) Additionally, the Samples, Surfer Blood, Chevy Metal, Grace McKagan, and Atlas Genius, among others, are all slated to perform.

In addition to the concert, the festival features art installations, sustainable initiatives, and, most unusually, onstage dining. The fest’s promoters promise “a team of award-winning chefs providing foodies the opportunity to be served a four-course meal while watching their favorite musicians perform, it’s truly a one-of-a-kind rock star dining experience.” The chefs will be announced at a later date.

Devo’s performance will come a few months after the premiere of a long-promised authorized documentary about the energy-domed band. The film is getting its premiere at Sundance this month. “Devo was a huge influence on me,” said filmmaker Chris Smith, whose credits include American Movie and Fyre, when announcing the film. “Their approach to music, film, video, and art was something I had never seen before and was one of the truly formative artistic influences that showed me there were entirely new ways to look at things.” After Sundance, the film could get a wider release in the foreseeable future.
