We first heard word two years ago of a Coachella-like music festival at the Rose Bowl, and now the inaugural Pasadena fest is finally here. Arroyo Seco Weekend will take over Brookside Park for two days of laid-back rock and chef-driven food pop-ups. Before you head into the Arroyo—and attempt to navigate the notoriously difficult traffic bottleneck—here’s everything you need to know about Arroyo Seco Weekend.
When is Arroyo Seco Weekend?
The inaugural music fest takes place June 23 and 24 at Brookside Park, next to the Rose Bowl.
When do tickets go on sale?
Tickets go on sale Friday, March 9 at 10am, with an American Express presale period beginning on March 7 at 10am.
How much do tickets cost?
A single day ticket costs $149 while a weekend pass is $249. VIP admission starts at $349 for a single day and $449 for the weekend.
Neil Young and Jack White headline Saturday of the two-day fest while Kings of Leon and Robert Plant top Sunday’s lineup. The rest of the lineup includes the likes of Belle and Sebastian, Alanis Morissette, Third Eye Blind, Pretenders, Kamasi Washington, Seu Jorge, Violent Femmes, Gary Clark Jr. and more.
What’s parking like?
Each ticket order comes with one complimentary parking pass. However, traffic around the Rose Bowl during events is notoriously difficult; consider taking the Metro to the Memorial Park station and making use of the free shuttle at the Parsons lot. Just a heads up that the shuttle rides back typically get stuck in the same traffic as cars. Consider making use of the on-site bike valet.
