The Summer Soundtrack

Terranea offers “Music on the Meadows” to start off the season.

California is not a stranger to a summer soundtrack. The Beach Boys, Stan Getz, the Eagles, Katy Perry and many other California artists play on heavy rotation during this blissful season. It’s fitting that one of the most beautiful bluffs on the Pacific will once again host a concert celebrating summer’s start with a new program of live music.

On June 18, Terranea Resort will come alive with sound during the fourth annual Music on the Meadows event, when both local favorites and a few impressive out-of-towners share their talents in this quintessential California setting.

“Music on the Meadows is a celebration of life, music, food and community,” says Agnelo Fernandes, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Sales at Terranea Resort. “Music is an integral sensory experience for our guests and is woven into the resort offerings through our Summer Celebration music series at Nelson’s, live DJs and artists at cielo point, nightly live music each weekend in the Lobby Bar along with special events such as Music on the Meadows throughout the year.”

This year’s event is no exception, with an eclectic lineup that’s sure to thrill an enthusiastic audience. With the concert coinciding with Father’s Day weekend, it’s likely many dads will be familiar with Big Bad Voodoo Daddy.

Originally formed in the early nineties in Ventura, California, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy returns to Southern California for a seaside performance. Celebrating 24 years on the music scene, the band promises guests a high energy performance blending the classic sounds of jazz, swing, and dixieland.

Rounding out the bill is local eclectic band Venice, known for their distinctive vocal sound and harmonies, and Downey natives The Blasters performing classic American rock ‘n’ roll.

Visitors who appreciate aesthetics as much as audio will find Terranea to be an ideal spot to enjoy the summer sun of the afternoon and a warm, breezy twilight. “The concert takes place on Terranea’s sprawling oceanfront grass lawn, overlooking Catalina Island and the Pacific Ocean,” shares Agnelo, of the panoramic views behind the stage. “It is ideal for outdoor concerts and we host a variety of signature events here throughout the year.”

If the music and atmosphere weren’t tempting enough, there’s the award-winning food to look forward to. Terranea prides itself on a culinary philosophy that focuses on local and sustainable ingredients, used in dishes at all of the resort’s restaurants.

Both Terranea and nearby farms boast herb and vegetable gardens, lemon groves, beehives and the resort has its own Sea Salt Conservatory, all harvested regularly to enhance the guests’ dining experience. Agnelo adds, “Guests will also get to experience Farm-to-Terranea BBQ-inspired dishes, local breweries, signature cocktails and more.”

Though a wonderful early summer diversion for all, Music on the Meadows also aims to be something bigger than just an evening of entertainment and quality dining. Agnelo expresses a hope that each special event held at Terranea brings a deeper connection between the resort and greater Palos Verdes community.

“We aspire to make Terranea and Palos Verdes a destination for guests and our community to connect with nature and enjoy signature musical events and offerings,” he says. “Our goal is to create an atmosphere and setting open to guests and the community.”

This year’s event is planned to be bigger and brighter than the last. Not only has the concert lineup and duration expanded but so have the guest perks—like an accommodations special for guests to enjoy a one-night stay and receive two general admission tickets and complimentary valet parking.

Music on the Meadows will take place from noon to 7 p.m. on Sunday, June 18, of Father’s Day Weekend. General admission tickets are available for $65 or $85 with parking, while VIP tickets are available for $125 including concert admission with VIP access, complimentary lunch with three drink tickets, picnic blanket and valet parking.

Should you want to enjoy the show in an even more exclusive and private experience, VIP Cabana Lounges are also available by request. For guests looking to stay the night with discounted accommodation, use promo code: MUSIC17.
