Concerts, like dimly lit chandeliers, are more impressive outdoors and are more enchanting when adorned with strategically placed strobe lights. Take a breath of fresh music with today's GrouponLive deal: for $75, you get one VIP ticket to the Pacific Festival at Oak Canyon Ranch in Silverado on Saturday, August 13, from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. (a $150 value).

The Pacific Festival, a one-day celebration of the best in indie rock, hip-hop, and DJ sets, fills five sound stages with more than 50 performers at Oak Canyon Ranch, an outdoor venue offering up scenic views of Orange County's rolling hillsides. One VIP ticket grants ticketholders a skeleton key to the best things the festival has to offer.

The day's festivities are punctuated by a diverse lineup of musical acts. Dance-punk act !!!

Cavort fashionably to Posso, a female DJ duo whose remixes and avant-garde accessories have impressed the likes of Victoria Beckham, Rihanna, and Katy Perry. Headlining the festival are Cut Copy and the superlative Snoop Dogg, the Grammy nominee known for izzle-ing suffixes, influencing the West Coast hip-hop scene, and penning a hit series of children's books about a British boy wizard.
