Planning Your Visit

To kick off the reopening, in May and June, we will present 4 free limited-capacity and socially distanced concerts for invited healthcare workers, first responders, and essential workers as a gesture of thanks for all they have done for Los Angeles throughout the pandemic. Beginning in July, we will present 14 weeks of concerts featuring a mixture of programming. The lineup of artists, dates and ticketing details will be announced on May 11.
