On June 23 and 24, 2018 the Arroyo Seco Weekend festival will take place on the grounds of the Brookside golf course outside the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California. This will be the second annual festival, after the successful inaugural event sold out last June. With world class music, food offered by top area chefs and bars offering premium beer, wine and soft drinks, the event is expected to sell out quickly once again.
This year’s lineup of major artists scheduled to perform will appeal to music lovers of all ages. Goldenvoice, the festival’s organizer and producer has gathered together a diverse list of artists. We are particularly excited about:
Saturday: Neil Young + Promise of the Real, Jack White, The Pretenders, Kamasi Washington and North Mississippi Allstars
Sunday: Kings of Leon, Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters, Gary Clark, Jr., Third Eye Blind, Violent Femmes, The Bangles, Trampled By Turtles, Aaron Neville and Los Lobos
Additional details about the weekend are on the festival website.
