While many 2012 festivals have yet to name a single performer, Southern California’s Doheny Blues Festival identifies three headliners ready to rock the Doheny State Beach in Dana Point. Happening May 19-20, the 15th annual festival will host Buddy Guy, Johnny Winter and Tab Benoit.
For the first time, the Doheny Blues Festival will work with the EventBand System which is based on “smart” wristbands functioning as tickets and electronic wallets. While wristbands were needed at previous Doheny Blues Festivals, 2012 will mark the first year organizers ship the bands to ticket purchasers during the weeks leading up to the big event.
Discounted early bird weekend passes for Doheny are available now through Dec. 31. Visit OmegaEvents.com for details.
