BeachLife Festival’s eclectic beach-focused music lineup features more than 55 top artists across the spectrum of rock, indie, jam, reggae. In addition to the headliners, there will also be performances from a wide range of talent including 311, SHERYL CROW, VANCE JOY, BLACK PUMAS, LORD HURON, STONE TEMPLE PILOTS, UB40 FEAT. ALI CAMPBELL, COLD WAR KIDS and many more.
Hailed as the “best restaurant in the South Bay” by the Orange County Register, The DAOU SideStage Experience is a 90-100 seat sit-down, pop-up restaurant, and the first culinary opportunity of its kind, located on the main stage and serviced by a team of award-winning chefs who create their menus alongside the artists curating their setlists. This is truly a one-of-a-kind rock star dining experience that provides the ultimate “dinner and a show” opportunity.
We believe food and LIVE Music create visceral memories for people. The DAOU SideStage Experience is all about creating these lasting, unforgettable memories. When you pair incredible chefs with amazing artists and fantastic wine, it just doesn’t get any better!Christine Staggs, BeachLife Festival
Handpicked chefs who represent Southern California culture will curate a truly multi-sensory festival experience.

In addition, Marino Monferrato, Vice President of Hospitality Operations at DAOU Family Estates and the beloved Maitre d’ from Hell’s Kitchen since Season 13, will be bringing the DAOU wines to life on the DAOU SideStage Experience.
At DAOU, we believe that a life well lived is created through connection. We seek to curate experiences that celebrate life through the lens of wine. Based in SoCal, an area where we have many DAOU supporters who we hold dear to our hearts, the Beachlife Festival is the perfect expression of art, music, culinary, and wine that speaks to our core values.
