On Saturday, May 13 Palm Tree Music Festival popped up at Doheny State Beach in Dana Point, CA for its first-ever beachside experience – bringing the brand’s signature tropical lifestyle to the palm tree capital itself.  The festival was headlined by Palm Tree Crew Co-Founder Kygo and international pop star Ellie Goulding, with additional performances from Tove Lo, The Midnight, The Knocks, Two Feet and Forester. 

Kygo closed out the festival weekend with a high-energy set filled with some of his most beloved hits, and brought Parson James out to share their collaborative track “Stole The Show” with the crowd. The night ended with a soulful rendition of Kygo’s chart-topper “Firestone” which featured a live string quartet, vocals by Justin Jesso and piano played by the DJ himself. 

Palm Tree Music Festival Dana Point marks the first festival of its kind at the state beach.  From an open-air corridor of uniquely immersive activations, to elevated table service offerings and premium VIP spaces for attendees to experience the Palm Tree Crew lifestyle IRL, Palm Tree Music Festival Dana Point transformed this natural space into a vibrant, oceanside playground for over 13,000 guests.  


Tequila Don Julio also returned to Palm Tree Music Festival Dana Point as a presenting sponsor to serve up signature craft cocktails and a luxury drinks experience. With summer-inspired sips available throughout the festival and one-of-a-kind bottle service for VIP ticket holders featuring the new Tequila Don Julio Rosado and iconic Tequila Don Julio 1942, attendees toasted to an incredible weekend with delicious premium tequila. 

Serving up Essential Energy and good vibes all weekend, CELSIUS® Essential Energy was the official energy drink partner of Palm Tree Music Festival Dana Point. Festival-goers had the opportunity to enjoy CELSIUS’ most popular flavors as they soaked in the beachside views.  

PUMA Golf and Palm Tree Crew have done it again, boldly combining the worlds of Golf and Music culture to bring the sand traps to Dana Point’s sandy beaches with a collaborative lifestyle collection and immersive on-site driving range experience. Designed to turn every occasion into a vacation, PGA Tour trend-setter Rickie Fowler and Palm Tree Crew Co-Founder Kygo joined forces to produce the latest PUMA Golf x Palm Tree Crew Collection, offering a versatile selection of retro-tropical polos, hoodies, shorts, caps, shoes, and more.
