Talks to host a music festival at the historic Rose Bowl in Pasadena, CA have existed for several years now, and today those discussions have become reality. The very first Arroyo Seco weekend has been announced, and for a fledgling festival it sure boasts an impressive lineup. Headlining the two-day festival that takes place June 24 + 25 is Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers and Mumford & Sons, with plenty of other eye-catching acts like The Shins, Alabama Shakes, Weezer, Dawes, Broken Social Scene, Andrew Bird, Fitz and the Tantrums and much more.
From top to bottom, the lineup is quite strong, with highlights like David Lindley, a performance by actor Jeff Goldblum with the Mildred Snitzer Orchestra and a jam session with G. Love and others titled Jamtown.
There are several ticketing options available, including single-day general admission, single day VIP, weekend general admission and weekend VIP. Find tickets for the festival here.
The festival will be put on by Goldenvoice at the Rose Bowl, which is located in Brookside Park in the northeast LA County city of Pasadena, CA.
