Live at Descanso Beach bringing concerts to Catalina

live at descanso beach

Between the Catalina Summer Concert Series and the great bands at local bars, Catalina nightlife regularly includes live music. This summer that reputation will be further assured, thanks to the Live @ Descanso Beach Club series of concerts.

Sponsored by Catalina Island Vacation Rentals and Island Express Helicopters, Live @ Descanso Beach Club kicks off May 28 with Smash Mouth. Smash Mouth, known for songs like Walkin’ on the Sun and All Star, is the just the first of four concerts spread over the summer. On July 8, Live @Descanso Beach Club will welcome Rusted Root and Toad the Wet Sprocket; Coleman Hell takes the Descanso Stage on Aug. 12; and on Sept. 3, reggae icons The Wailers complete the series line-up.

Advance tickets can be found purchased here. CIVR guests, friends and family can utilize an exclusive discount code when purchasing at any ticket booth (discount not available for online purchase): promo code “SMCIVR”.   Tickets are available at Santa Catalina Island Company ticket booths, including on the green pier, tour plaza boat terminals, zip-line and at the Cabrillo Mole. VIP seating and cabana rentals are also available.

The recent Renaissance at Descanso Beach has brought the destination further acclaim. Located between the Catalina Casino and Hamilton Cove, the Catalina attraction includes a wide range of activities, including dining, kayaking and the famous Catalina zipline as well as massages, snorkeling and cocktail service on the sand.
