Festival attendees will choose from over 100 craft beers and wines to taste until 4:00 PM (for those 21 and up), and will have the chance to enjoy the best of California's BBQ.

The initial list of participating breweries includes: Ballast Point (San Diego, CA), Bottle Logic Brewing (Anaheim, CA), Ninkasi (Eugene, OR), Stone Brewing Co. (San Diego, CA) and Sierra Nevada (Chico, CA), with many more to be announced.

Participating wineries include: Liberated, Maggio Winery, Mark West, Rebel Coast, William Hill, and tons more to be announced.

Festival co-producer Cameron Collins of Brew Ha Ha Productions explains, "Driftwood is going to be a really unique and special event! We're bringing in some of the best beer and most sought after wine in the country in addition to some of the world's best BBQ. To top it all off, we're holding it at one of California's most beautiful parks and beaches! There have been plenty of beer and wine festivals, but there has never been one like this!"

Driftwood co-producer John Reese of SGE says, "We are so excited to bring south Orange County its very first all-day country music, craft beer and BBQ festival at the beautiful Doheny State Beach. We're also giving back to the San Onofre Parks Foundation and Doheny State Beach Interpretive Association with every ticket sold. So in addition to throwing a great local event in our own backyard, we are also helping to preserve our beaches, parks and coastlines, which is what it's really all about."

"K-FROG is very excited about presenting the Driftwood festival at Doheny State Beach," says Steve Hay, Director of Live Events & Experiences for 95.1 KFRG-FM. "We've always been California Country, and what's more California than the beach? We're bringing an awesome country lineup from Nashville to perform right on the sand of one of our most beautiful beaches. Great country music with Pacific Coast Highway and a California beach sunset as a backdrop. It's something that's never been done before, and K-FROG is proud to be the station to do it. You don't want to miss this one!"

"Driftwood at Doheny State Beach has been an idea looking for a home for a long time. We refused to launch until we found the perfect place for the country music-loving crowd. Working with California State Parks to bring another star-studded event to Doheny State Beach is a match made in heaven for Driftwood. Craft beer and wine tastings for four hours, the best BBQ that California has to offer, and HUGE country music acts, all day on the beach in the park with your toes in the sand? OK!," co-producer Heather Vantress of SGE adds.

A portion of the proceeds from Driftwood at Doheny State Beach will be donated to the San Onofre Parks Foundation—a California non-profit that cooperatively works with the California State Parks to develop, preserve and enhance the recreation and experience of California's unique and beautiful coastal parks—and the Doheny State Beach Interpretive Association (DSBIA), the non-profit cooperating association of Doheny State Beach, dedicated to the protection of the park's beaches, facilities, marine refuge and its historical, cultural and social stories.

General Admission and VIP tickets will be available for purchase for the following prices. All tickets include beer and wine tasting, and access to view the music stage.
