    Default Pacific Festival 2012: The Dunes




    Pacific Festival is back! The date is set, Dawn Patrol pre-sale tickets are on-sale now for Pacific Festival: The Dunes, Sunday, September 2, 2012. We're excited to host this new event at an amazing venue, the Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort and Marina, located on the water's edge of the Pacific Ocean.

    Pacific Festival: The Dunes will showcase our favorite live music acts, the best local foods and lots of other surprises that we'll be announcing as we get closer to this year's event on Labor Day Weekend.

    Ok... we're not good with surprises. Here's your first hint: Bring your beach towel and SWIMming suits!

    Stay tuned to our official Facebook Page as we roll-out the rest of the details.

    Celebrate summer in style at Pacific Festival: The Dunes.

    The Dunes



    The right hand side of the lagoon where that large mound(well not right there, more towards that green patch of grass and nearby sand) is is now a summer camp, though, with minimal infrastructure, so that area probably will not be utilized. the top portion is an rv resort, it ain't moving. guessing it will be in the parking lot/beach area to the left of the lagoon. there is also a boat ramp below that area, no way that is closed off labor day weekend.

    will be nice to ride a bike by to check it out since we live in the neighborhood in the top right of that picture also up in that area? the high school steve aoki went to. my sis even made out with him once back then. eww.

    ehhhhh..... same weekend as FYF and a not so cool new venue in newport. Going to take some seriously big names to get me there this year. Lets hope that recent photo of Aoki and Azari & III pans out to something worth while.

    it makes absolutely no sense.... last year they had it the same weekend as Outside Lands, but that was Nor Cal vs So Cal. This is just plain stupid. Especially when a single day for 16 acts will end up being almost the same price as a 2 day for FYF.

    I just figured it was Poolside, since they are already doing the pre-party.

    I'm guessing they lost money, based on the evidence of different, smaller venue and last year's 50% off tix, and the addition of Snoop closer to the festival start.

    Wonder if this will end up in the SoCal festival graveyard with Epicenter?

    No DJs? I figured poolside would play...and steve aoki. And no more than 16 bands? Last year there were 50+. I dont know why I assumed they did well last year in sales.

    I bought my ticket. Depending on the lineup, I'll have to end up selling this or FYF Sunday. I was really hoping for another Lakeside Stage like last year at Oak Canyon, but it doesn't look like there will be one.

    ^^^ exactly. Unless a 'live band' is put together in some shape or form there will be no bro-step this year, no DJs whatsoever. This whole festival has disaster written all over it. Unless this 'Seaside' stage is something different than the main.
