Pearl Jam has confirmed its first U.S. performance of 2021, which will take place at frontman Eddie Vedder’s fifth annual Ohana Festival at Doheny State Beach in Dana Point, Calif. Vedder will also perform solo at the event, scheduled for Sept. 24-26. Kings Of Leon, My Morning Jacket, Maggie Rogers, Brandi Carlile, Black Pumas, the Frames and Sharon Van Etten are also on the bill.

The 2020 edition of Ohana was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Tickets for the 2021 event are on sale now at Ohanafest.com, with a portion of the proceeds set to benefit the San Onofre Parks Foundation and the Doheny State Beach Foundation.

Additional performers include Spoon, Yola, Mac DeMarco, Cold War Kids, Real Estate, Jade Bird, Durand Jones and the Indications, CAAMP and the Gaslight Anthem’s Brian Fallon. Beyond music, the festival will feature a Storytellers Cove with conversations on sustainability, wellness and other issues.

“Ohana comes down to the generosity of the man himself,” the Frames’ frontman, Glen Hansard, tells Variety. “Everybody on the bill, Ed chose. One of the things I love about Ed, and I feel similarly about the way I operate, is that you’d be surprised what music a guy in a worldwide successful rock band listens to. It wouldn’t necessarily be the music you think. Going along to Ohana illustrated how broad Ed’s taste is, and the cross-section of music that he was picking out of the sky. It was great for me to be involved. I felt very welcomed. And I feel welcomed by Pearl Jam fans, which I don’t take for granted. It isn’t lost on me.”

Pearl Jam has not performed live since Sept. 4, 2018 at Boston’s Fenway Park. The band’s 2020 tour in support of its latest album, “Gigaton,” was scuttled by the pandemic, with its 2020 European tour dates having been rescheduled for 2022. Pearl Jam’s website still lists a performance the weekend of Sept. 18 at the Sea Hear Now festival in Asbury Park, N.J., but no official announcement has yet been made if that event is still happening.

Last week, Pearl Jam released 186 official live bootlegs to streaming services for the first time in tandem with a new concert-focused microsite dubbed Deep.
