With 20 years of live, open-air blues performances under its belt in Dana Point, the 2018 Doheny Blues Festival takes place on May 19-20 at a new location: Sea Terrace Park above Salt Creek Beach (between the Ritz Carlton Hotel & The Monarch Beach Resort).

Rick Sherman, Founder of the Doheny Blues Festival: “Together, we have all built the Doheny Blues Festival into an event that celebrates an American art form, Blues music, and speaking on behalf of the entire team — we couldn’t have done it without you! Doheny Blues is more than one weekend of music, it represents two decades of memories, friendships and killer musical performances. And we’re just getting started!”
