Save the date: The Los Angeles Philharmonic is throwing a huge open-streets festival on September 30—and the entire city is invited.
The supersized block party will feature concerts, art installations, and food trucks at six “hubs” along an 8-mile route that will stretch from the Walt Disney Concert Hall to the Hollywood Bowl.
The route—which will pass through Downtown, MacArthur Park, Koreatown, and Hollywood—will be closed to cars and dedicated to people on foot, bikes, scooters, skates, and wheelchairs. (All forms of non-motorized transportation are welcome.)
The entertainment line-up is extensive, with some 1,800 performers slated to croon and dance. Among them are a slew of Los Angeles musicians, including Dustbowl Revival, D?M-FunK, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Las Cafeteras, Phoebe Bridgers, and Wayne White.
Co-hosted by CicLAvia, the event is a celebration of the philharmonic’s 100th anniversary and will culminate in a free concert at the bowl. Ticketing information for that show will be announced August 30.
Start making your plans now to join this 8-mile street party from the Walt Disney Concert Hall to the Hollywood Bowl. I am thrilled to celebrate the LA Philharmonic’s 100th birthday with car-free streets filled with art and music!
