The OohLaLa Festival serves to highlight the best of the French pop music scene, and West Coasters should take note – the festival is returning to Los Angeles for the second year in a row this fall.
The festival, which “curates its acts to span genres and selects artists who embrace France’s rich musical history and simultaneously reflect fresh sounds,” will highlight Gotan Project, General Elektriks, El Hijo de la Cumbia and more.
The three-day festival, taking place from September 30 to October 2 (and October 3 in San Francisco), will be presented and executive produced by Goldenvoice and presented by KCRW. It’s sponsored by the Consulate General of France in Los Angeles and the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the US. Ticket information can be found here.
