Arroyo Seco Weekend Announces 2018 Festival Lineup

Arroyo Seco Weekend 2018 PosterWe have exciting news! Following a hugely successful, sold out inaugural year in 2017, Goldenvoice has unveiled its lineup for this summer’s Arroyo Seco Weekend. Coming June 23rd and 24th, Arroyo Seco Weekend will return to Brookside Golf Course in Pasadena with three stages of live music. Headliners this year include Neil Young + Promise of the Real, Jack White, Kings of Leon and Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters.

Weekend and single day GA and VIP passes go on sale Friday March 9th at 10am PT on their website New to this year is the Weekend Clubhouse VIP pass option, featuring incredible amenities, exclusive access to intimate upfront guest viewing areas at both main stages, and lots more. Also new this year, CID Entertainment will provide Hotel Packages that bundle event admission with hotel accommodations, merchandise, and shuttle transportation.

Keep in mind, Arroyo Seco Weekend isn’t just about the music. It is truly a food lover’s paradise. You won’t find typical greasy festival fare here. Instead, there will be a plethora of local delicacies from Los Angeles’ and Pasadena’s favorite and award-winning restaurants and chefs. Indulge in the many unique dishes from classic Italian fare and authentic Mexican, to Korean BBQ and gluten-free and vegan options celebrating Los Angeles’ melting pot of a food scene. Examples include Jon & Vinny’s, Hatchet Hall, Sage Plant Based Bistro, Bourbon Steak, Kogi, and many more. And if you’re more of a liquid-calories-person, fear not: Arroyo Seco Weekend will treat you to an extensive list of craft beers by Beer Belly as well as an incredible raw and natural wine selection.

Want to bring the whole family? Why not. This is a family-friendly festival encouraging you to bring your kids along. Children 10 and under are free with a ticketed adult. To keep the little ones entertained, Kidspace Children’s Museum will again feature a tent of kid-friendly activities. Or pick a book from one of the many little libraries onsite.

Although the festival offers free day parking, there will also be a Weekend Preferred Parking pass available for $65.
