The Ohana festival will be hosting an online stream this weekend in lieu of its usual in-person event, which was canceled this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The two-day virtual show will feature archival sets by various artists from previous Ohana events, incuding the festival’s founder Pearl Jam‘s Eddie Vedder. You can watch it for free starting this Saturday, September 26, at 8 p.m. ET via the Ohana YouTube channel.

Among the other artists that will be featured delivering archival performances are Social Distortion, Incubus, The Strokes and Mudhoney.

In addition, the streaming event will offer a number of new performances, including one by Deaf Charlie — a group featuring Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament and Fitz & the Tantrums drummer John Wicks.

Ohana hopes to return in person to its usual site of Dana Point, California, in September 2021 with a lineup headlined by Vedder, Pearl Jam and Kings of Leon.
