About Pacific Festival: OC
Pacific Festival: OC was successfully launched last year by transforming Orange County's Costa Mesa community landmark Triangle Square into a two-day music festival that played host to capacity crowds and featuring 50+ acts, including business partner Steve Aoki, The Sounds, Rebelution, Miami Horror, The Aggrolites, Alan Braxe, Classixx, Lifelike, Rob Roy and Chiddy Bang. Last year's launch was supported by Skullcandy, Red Bull, Vitamin Water, OC Weekly, Firestone Beer, and Ty Ku. In addition, Governor Schwarzenegger endorsed DEEJAY DC's successful Guinness Book of World Records attempt at Pacific Festival: OC for the world longest DJ set—spanning 121 consecutive hours. "This is a quite an endeavor you're about to undertake, one that could not happen without your determined efforts and skills. As a former professional athlete, I know the tremendous amount of preparation it takes to become a winner, and I applaud your dedication to making your goals a reality," wrote Governor Schwarzenegger in a letter of support written to Deejay DC.
Pacific Festival Entertainment is the vision of two groups of longtime friends with a combined 40 years of experience in music and event production. Steve Aoki, world-renowned DJ and founder of Dim Mak Records, and Mike Tunney, founder of Collaborative Media, have been friends for over 25 years, growing up together in Newport Beach. As their first business venture, Aoki and Tunney wanted to create a new music and arts festival for Southern California. With a keen vision to produce first-class live entertainment experiences, the two friends joined forces to create Pacific Festival Entertainment alongside Kelson Berkus and So Cal-native Justin Ruiz.
"The idea was to produce an event that connects culture with community; art with music; and entertainment with philanthropy in our backyard of Orange County," says Steve Aoki, one of the festival's founding partners. "We wanted to establish a premium music and arts festival, and have organized a large collective of seasoned event producers, artists, friends and musicians."
