Arroyo Seco Announces Its 2018 Line Up, Changes To Festival Grounds

Arroyo Seco Weekend is back for its second year with an even stronger lineup and logistical upgrades.

Three stages will be set up at the Rose Bowl-adjacent Brookside Park on June 23 and 24. Neil Young and Jack White headline Saturday, with Kings of Leon and Robert Plant topping Sunday’s bill. Belle and Sebastian, Alanis Morissette, Third Eye Blind, Pretenders, The Specials Kamasi Washington, Seu Jorge, Violent Femmes, Gary Clark Jr. are also slated to appear.

Arroyo Seco Weekend is also food lover’s haven, featuring the most sought-after dishes and award-winning restaurants the Los Angeles and Pasadena communities have to offer. The festival’s vast selection will satisfy any craving, from classic Italian dishes and authentic Mexican, to Korean BBQ and gluten-free and vegan options celebrating Los Angeles’ melting pot of a food scene.

Tickets to the general public go on sale Friday, March 9 at 10 am, with an American Express presale period beginning on March 7 at 10 am. A single day ticket costs $149 while a weekend pass is $249. VIP admission starts at $349 for a single day and $449 for the weekend.

To make things easier this year, concert organizers have changed the layout of the event. Chairs and blankets are banned from areas directly in front of the main stages, and the stage positions have swapped with the VIP area on just one end of the grounds. The bridges linking the two sides of the festival grounds will now also be on the same side as on the same side as shuttle and rideshare in hopes of avoiding bottlenecked areas.
