Time Out says

Formerly known as the Staples Center, this Downtown arena is best known as the home court for the Lakers (as well as fellow NBA team the Clippers, the NHL’s Kings and WNBA’s Sparks). It’s also one of the city’s go-to spaces for arena-sized concerts. Though it’s plush and modern, the sound quality in the 20,000-capacity arena is surprisingly variable.

What’s on

Club Quarantine Live with D-Nice

  • Rap, hip-hop and R&B

We never thought we’d be in the same club as Michelle Obama and Rihanna until Club Quarantine came along. Alright, technically it was a virtual club streamed on Instagram, but that’s no matter: DJ D-Nice’s hours-long sets from his Downtown L.A. home became life-affirming in a real tough year. Now, he’s bringing those positive vibes IRL for this Arena show with Ne-Yo, Brandy, Nelly, Jadakiss and more.


  • Festivals

If the word Hallyu means anything to you, then pencil this annual K-pop convention into your calendar this summer. For three days, the L.A. Convention Center hosts panels, workshops, signings and more, as well as Arena concerts on Saturday and Sunday stocked with Korean celebs and superstars.

Kendrick Lamar

  • Rap, hip-hop and R&B

After earning a Pulitzer Prize for his 2017 album, DAMN., Kendrick Lamar has finally filled the five-year break with the release of Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers—and a bunch of SoCal tour dates, too. Lamar will play the Honda Center as well as two nights at the Arena, with support from Baby Keem at both. An unparalleled lyricist and easily hip-hop’s most ambitious heir, the Compton native’s no-frills live shows place the spotlight squarely on his talents on the mic; it’s not a show to be missed. For both shows, presale starts Thursday, May 19 at 10am, with general sale the following day on Friday, May 20 at noon.

Post Malone

  • Rap, hip-hop and R&B

Pop-rap phenom of the moment Post Malone rides his wave of inexplicable-yet-oh-so-explicable success right into four nights in L.a.. Say what you will about Posty; you’ll have a tough time finding catchier party tunes.
