    As much as I like to see Eddie solo, if this show happens, I agree and would prefer two nights of PJ. Actually really excited to see KOL as well, like their new album alot

    Best airport to fly into and out of the Point?  LAX or San Diego, both show about equi-distant but for some reason it seems to think the at LA will be quicker ride by nearly a half hour than SD.

    Thoughts anyone?

    Orange County (SNA) is closer if you can find direct flights - that’s what I’m doing from Chicago

    Long Beach is a great airport (Southwest and Jetblue fly there). It is like 10 gates, so super easy in and out. Orange County would be closer, though.

    Nah. This is Eddie's festival and Saturday night is his. I'd be happy to see the guys from the band come out for some guest spots though. It could make for some unique versions.

    I’m more excited to see Eddie on Saturday night than PJ on Sunday.

    The Saturday seems like the night to skip, IMHO. I don't know who Maggie Rogers or anyone else is on that night.

    The Frames is Glen Hansard's band. Saturday will be fantastic.

  • matt84matt84 Posts: 135
    I’ve never been to Ohana before which is why Eddie on the Saturday is more essential to me than PJ on Sunday. Maggie Rogers is excellent and The Frames will be fantastic.

    EV solo is the second best show one can see, second only to PJ.

    Definitely fly into Orange County if you are able. So easy and close. We flew in there one of the years for Ohana from Eugene after dropping our kid off at college and had a blast. The drive from LAX down blows unless you get lucky with light traffic. Doubt that will be the case on a gorgeous weekend in late September when the Southland is hopefully somewhat back to normal. Good luck!

    That’s a crazy thought and I only like it because I’ve seen Eddie like five times since last seeing PJ in 2014. Can’t believe it’s been that long. Horrible! I “Guarantee “ Eddie will have Mike out and Matt out for a song or two. Would love to see Masters of War with just Ed and Mike like all those years ago when they did it. He could bring the whole band out for Hard Sun or RITFW Sat night. I’m getting chills thinking about it. Now let’s make it happen!!!

    We are flying to LGB (Coming in from Salt Lake City). Its about a 30 minute Uber from LGB to Dana Point. Not sure if this is helpful for you or not!

    Orange County(SNA) is your best option. San Diego is a much nicer drive than driving from LA...also if there are flights into Ontario Airport, that is about the same distance as LA, but a little less hassle than LAX
    I live in San Diego. Flights to SNA will be more expensive. Drive from SD to south OC is about 1 hr at most. 
    I've been to every Ohana and I always drive up on Saturday morning, find a free parking place nearby, have breakfast/brunch, then walk over to Doheney.

    We are coming from SLC as well!!  Live in Riverton.  However, as another option, we are flying direct into Orange County (John Wayne Airport, SNA) on Thursday.  It is also about a 30 min drive to Dana Point (although we are staying in San Clemente).

    Now you have me intrigued....what is this "find a free parking place nearby" that you speak of?  I haven't been before and figured that parking would be a sh!t show....the potential of free parking changes my hotel requirements significantly....any insight would be helpful

    Not sure I’ve seen the free parking either.  All I saw were lots of “don’t even think about parking here if you don’t want your car towed”.

    I emailed the festival organizers re: Sunday endtime....they said it ends on Sunday between 10-10:30pm.
