The LA Phil is going big for their centennial celebration, calling it Celebrate LA.
A free one-day festival will take place across an eight-mile route in Los Angeles on Sunday, September 30. The festival begins at 9 AM. It’ll feature hundreds of musicians, artists, dancers at six different hubs (all accessible by nearby Metro stops), culminating in a free show at the Hollywood Bowl where the LA Philharmonic will be joined by Herbie Hancock, Kali Uchis, Youth Orchestra Los Angeles, as well as special guests.
The hub performances will feature acts like Phoebe Bridgers, Dustbowl Revival, Dengue Fever, Dam-Funk (DJ set), Ozomatli, and more. The free show at the Hollywood Bowl will be a ticketed event, and you should RSVP to the LA Phil in order to get updates on when the ticket lottery opens August 20.
The hub locations include Walt Disney Concert Hall (Grand Ave. between 1st and 3rd), MacArthur Park (Park View St. b/w Wilshire and 6th in the park), Koreatown (Liberty Park at Wilshire b/w Serrano and Oxford), Melrose (Melrose Ave. at N. Windsor Blvd.), Hollywood (Vine between Hollywood and Yucca), and the Hollywood Bowl (Kagan Patio). View the full map below.
