Time Out says

Built on top of the Arroyo Seco dry riverbed, this 90,000-seat stadium has been used for World Cup finals, auditions of American Idol, a yearly fireworks show every Fourth of July and massive summer tours like U2, BTS and Beyoncé and Jay-Z. It is also, of course, home to the UCLA Bruins football team and the annual New Year’s Day NCAA Tournament of Roses game, which is preceded by the spectacular Tournament of Roses parade. On the second Sunday of each month, the bowl is home to the world’s largest flea market.

What’s on

Masters of Taste

  • Festivals

Luxury food fest Masters of Taste is back for another year at the Rose Bowl with some of L.A.’s finest bars, restaurants and dessert shops. Chefs Bret Thompson and Lucy Thompson-Ramirez of Pez Cantina host the 2024 event, with about 100 vendors to be announced. All proceeds benefit Union Station Homeless Services.

Cruel World Festival

  • Rock and indie

Cake on the eyeliner, cry it off and then dance away the tears at the return of this 1980s-to-aughts goth, new wave and punk fest with Duran Duran, Interpol, Blondie, Simple Minds, Placebo, Soft Cell, Adam Ant, Gary Numan and more. The one-day-only event features dozens of alt obsessions on the golf course next to the Rose Bowl, where it once again returns.

Just Like Heaven

  • Music festivals

The aughts indie nostalgia shows no signs of stopping, so its no surprise that Just Like Heaven—a music fest that’s featured basically every beloved 2000s indie band—is coming back for its fourth edition. The fest will take over the golf course next to the Rose Bowl on May 18, 2024 with a lineup that’s pulled straight from your old iPod: The Postal Service, Phoenix, Death Cab for Cutie and the War on Drugs top this year’s lineup, with additional sets from Miike Snow, Gossip, Passion Pit, Tegan and Sara, Washed Out, Alvvays, Phantogram, Broken Social Scene and more. Tickets go on sale Friday, January 26 at 11am. Tickets cost between $187 and $227, or $411 for VIP.
