On the Fourth of July, Terranea Resort will come alive with sound during the fifth 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, Chief Strategy Officer & EVP Revenue at Terranea Resort. “Music is an integral sensory experience for our guests and is woven into the resort offerings through our Terranea Sound 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 Fourth of July, it is sure to be a day to remember, especially with headliner Al Jardine of the Beach Boys.
Music legend Al Jardine brings a storytellers-style performance to the stage in what must be the first show of its kind by any member of the Beach Boys. “Postcard” brings the epic tale of America’s band alive from their earliest days recording their very first song, “Surfin’” up on through “Surfin Safari,” “Help Me Rhonda,” “Sloop John B” and that magical year of 1966, right through to today and his debut solo release, “A Postcard From California”. Al is joined by his son Matt, known for his breathtaking falsettos on Brian Wilson’s most recent “Pet Sounds” 50th Anniversary tour, and Jeff Ross from the Peter Asher band. In an intimate acoustic setting Including rare images and video, Mr. Jardine takes us back into a history so improbable that it must have been meant to be! From meeting Elvis Presley to making “Pet Sounds”, here are the songs, stories and harmonies that moved generations in one unforgettable evening.
Ambrosia, the band known and loved by a multitude of fans since the 1970s, is now more alive and compelling than ever. This 5-time Grammy Nominated ensemble is exploring new musical territory and bringing an exceptional musical performance to stages everywhere. Always exploring the possibilities of progressive, classical, and world influences – with tangled roots of soul, rhythm, and blues – Ambrosia is continuing to entertain their original fans while still engaging newer audiences.
Rounding out the bill is Jeremy Buck, a songwriter pure and true who is constantly on a mission to create a life with meaning and music worth hearing. During a show you will see Jeremy play drums, keys, guitars, synths, loops, vocoders, and live samples to create a unique and stimulating blend of electronic and organic sounds. He is a born entertainer, with an abundance of talent. As a one man band he utilizes a looping pedal to mix multiple instruments together to produce a full band sound.
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, fresh eggs from newly welcomed chickens, 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 locally 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.”

General admission tickets are available for $65, while early bird VIP tickets are available for $125 including concert admission with VIP access and seating, artist meet & greet, and complimentary lunch with two drink tickets.
