The 2nd Annual Pacific Festival: The Dunes was held in Newport Beach over the weekend. Featuring performances by Miami Horror, Bag Raiders, Sam Sparro, Poolside, Holy Ghost! and many more. Partial proceeds of the music festival are donated to the Surfrider Foundation, benefitting environmental causes. What makes Pacific Festival stick out as a summer music festival are a few things:
1. It's still small so easy to navigate.
2. Literally held on the beach, where you can paddle board in the water, stay in your swim suit all day while drinking and and dancing.
3. It's SoCal, the weather is divine and so is the crowd.
4. Artists are a blend of electronic/ indie bands with DJ's producing an upbeat crowd with upbeat sounds.
5. They give back. I know. I know. We mentioned it earlier and in our previous Q&A with the Pacific Festival team but donating $1 of every ticket sold helps and there's nothing better than that.
We spoke to a long time advocate for the Surfrider Foundation and this is what he had to say. " My experience with Surfrider is that they have a great cause and one of the most difficult battles. Human behaviors of pollution and abuse to the ocean and land has to be recreated in such a way that we all radically alter our relationship with Earth. Surfrider is one if many organizations pushing that cause to the people of Earth."
Overall we had a blast and took some great shots. For more photos look at the links below and stay tuned for next year's Pacific Festival, I know we will!
