Union Station Launches First Ever Free Summer Concert Series
Forget cramming into some crowded, sweaty bar—come July, you can spend Saturday nights under the stars, hearing up-and-coming bands and DJs in the stately gardens of L.A.'s Union Station. The landmark 1939 station announced their first ever evening summer concert series, which will begin July 2 and run Saturday nights through Labor Day weekend. The free(!) concert series will be hosted by KROQ and Live Nation, and each show will feature two emerging bands and a DJ set. There will also be food trucks on hand, obvi."This is an important step for Union Station in that it introduces folks to this extraordinary public space and the beauty of one of Los Angeles' most iconic architectural properties while encouraging Angelenos to take the light rail, subways, Metrolink, Amtrak and Metro buses to the station and experience the ease and comfort of our growing mass transit system,” Ken Pratt, Metro's Director of Union Station Property Management said. We agree!
There are few places in the city more glorious than our gorgeous, historic station, so this new series sounds pretty exciting.
According to a press release, Michael Leier, Bloodboy, Figs Vision, and DJ Grant Owens will headline the opening night on July 2, performing in the station's verdant South Patio Garden.
Other artists slated to perform include:
July 9th: DYAN, The Brinks
August 6th: Sam Fischer
August 13th: Salt Petal
August 20th: Lauv, Pretty Sister
