Luxury tropical lifestyle experience comes to SoCal

Palm Tree Crew is bringing its tropical-inspired festival series to the sands of Doheny State Beach in Dana Point, CA to kick off the summer season. The one-day-only Palm Tree Music Festival will be an intimate experience curated by Kygo and his manager Myles Shear that fuses together an unmatched feeling of summer in paradise with majestic beach vibes and unparalleled performances from global music icons.

On Saturday, May 13th, Palm Tree Music Festival Dana Point will blend one-of-a-kind, luxurious experiences with unmatched summer nostalgia to bring fans from around the world together in celebration of a tropical lifestyle and incredible musical talent. The festival will be headlined by Kygo and Ellie Goulding and will feature additional performances by Tove Lo, The Midnight, The Knocks, Two Feet and Forester.

Putting the tropical in “tropical lifestyle,” Dana Point will be the collective’s first festival hosted on the actual beach that will transform this natural space into a vibrant playground that showcases artists, brands and experiences in an unforgettable backdrop. To continue elevating the moment, the festival will also feature an exclusive VIP lounge and the Palm Tree Beach Club where guests can take in beachside views from shaded cabanas, hammocks and beyond in some of the festival’s most premium spaces.

“We are thrilled to bring the Palm Tree Music Festival experience beachside at Dana Point,” says Palm Tree Crew Co-Founder Kygo. “The tropical lifestyle isn’t just our brand, it’s a way of life, and we couldn’t be more excited to finally hit the sand with our community to start the summer season with good vibes and great music.”
