Fly Into The Blue: Airshow Viewing Experience 2023

The three-day Pacific Airshow in Huntington Beach showcases the world's best display teams who perform spectacular stunts – flying right over the Pacific Ocean. The weekend affair delivers an action-packed lineup of events featuring the world’s best aviators, an exhilarating boat race around Catalina Island, live music on the beach, and so much more. During the airshow, Paséa will have multiple viewing areas for locals and guests including: - The expansive Ocean Lawn which offers unhindered views of the ocean & sky – great for families and large groups. - Treehouse Lounge (21+) where visitors can enjoy a bird’s eye view of the airshow with rooftop seating and cocktails in hand. 


Although they haven't released a new album since 2021’s Music of the Spheres, Chris Martin and Coldplay continue to pack venues and draw crowds. The band has been successful for more than two decades now and is known for their politics as much as their music. Coldplay famously supports environmental causes and does their best to make concerts sustainable while minimizing waste. There are even bikes the audience can pedal to generate electricity. Tickets are on sale
