The managers of the BeachLife Festival have announced the programming of the chefs of its pop-up restaurant SideStage for the second year of the event.
And as at the inaugural festival in 2019, the trio of starred chefs will exhibit their cooking skills alongside the main stage musicians, each chef serving a prix fixe menu of $ 150- $ 250 per person at the pop-up on different event nights from September 10-12 at the Seaside Lagoon in Redondo Beach.
Returning for his second year as SideStage Chef, South Bay Chef David LeFevre – of MB Post, Arthur J and Fishing With Dynamite – will cook on Friday when acts such as Jane’s Addiction and Cage the Elephant hit the spot.
On Saturday, the SideStage will be owned by Brendan Collins, a former Michelin-starred Melisse restaurant in Santa Monica who later opened Waterloo & City in Culver City. He will serve diners as actors such as Counting Crows and Fitz and temper tantrums take the main stage.
And finally, South Bay native Tyler Gugliotta will close SideStage on Sunday night. Ziggy and Stephen Marley end the weekend with a set featuring music from their father. Gugliotta is the former Chef of The Tasting Kitchen Venice and the current Chef / Owner of Baran’s 2239 in Hermosa Beach.
Daily seating for the pop-up restaurant, which is located just off the main stage, will begin around 3:30 p.m. with reservations open this month and available only to BeachLife ticket holders.
This year’s festival features around four dozen acts on the seaside event’s schedule, including The Revivalists, Silversun Pickups, Men at Work, The Wallflowers, The English Beat, Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals, Portugal. The man, Gary Clark Jr., G. Love & Special Sauce and Thievery Corporation.
