With country superstar Eric Church closing out day one with an impressive all-acoustic set, to Eddie Vedder’s iconic collaborative music showcase Saturday night with Johnny Marr and Liz Phair, to Switchfoot having a moment of grace and calling all to show love and light as the San Diego natives felt at home in Orange County’s beautiful beach town, the Ohana Fest really felt like a true family.
