Time Out Says

With 32 acres of open space directly adjacent to Chinatown, L.A. State Historic Park boasts an amazing view of Downtown. The park was once home to major events like FYF, Renegade Craft Fair and Hard Summer, but all went quiet with a major multi-year renovation that started in 2014. Upon its completion in spring 2017, the park redesign added drought tolerant landscaping, a scenic overlook bridge, an orange grove and a snack bar, Cargo.

What's On

Smokin’ Grooves

  • Rap, hip-hop and R&B

Though the 420-friendly part of this music fest’s name is likely to grab your attention, the “groove” part is what’ll hold it, with an R&B-heavy lineup that includes Erykah Badu, Nas, the Roots, Jhené Aiko, Miguel, Kamasi Washington, Thundercat and more.

Primavera Sound

  • Music festivals

After having to push off its slated 2020 debut, Primavera Sound is—fingers crossed—bound for L.A. again, with a pretty impressive lineup to boast, too. The fest, which originated in Barcelona, will see Arctic Monkeys, Lorde and Nine Inch Nails atop its 2022 lineup. The three-day event, scheduled for September 16 through 18 at L.A. State Historic State Park, also includes the likes of James Blake, Mitski, Clairo, Darkside, Khruangbin, Arca, Stereolab and Kim Gordon. Festival organizers note that the 59 names announced so far are just the first batch, and that there are still more names to come—with a particular focus on equality. Presale starts Friday, December 10 at 10am. If it doesn’t sell out right away, any remaining tickets will go on sale later that day at 2pm. Courtesy Primavera Sound
