After a successful first year in 2016, Driftwood at Doheny State Beach expands to two days for Veterans Day Weekend 2017 in Orange County, CA. Driftwood will feature country music, California-focused craft beer, and top notch BBQ at the scenic Doheny State Beach in Dana Point, CA on Saturday, November 11 and Sunday, November 12, with performances from Chase Rice, Kip Moore, Frankie Ballard, Dan + Shay, Maddie and Tae and more.

Produced by premier music festival production company Synergy Global Entertainment (SGE) and Orange County, California’s most successful and respected craft beer festival producer Brew Ha Ha Productions, Driftwood at Doheny State Beach will feature over 100 craft beers and some of the best BBQ in the region, along with music from top country music artists.

Chase Rice explains, “We love sharing the new music with our fans at festivals like Driftwood because the energy [of the crowd while on stage] is exactly why we got into music in the first place. A lot of the creativity that went into this new album was inspired by our fans and moments like those we have on stage…we can’t wait to share that experience with such an incredible setting. Craft beer and Country music, it doesn’t get any better.”
