Earlier this month, I went to my first music festival! It was local enough that I didn’t have to figure out a place to stay and it fell during Labor Day weekend meaning I didn’t have to take any days off of work. It was a win-win. Although it was scorching hot (when is it not in SoCal), it was so much fun! I took the Gold Line for the first time and felt more “LA” than ever. Definitely a weekend full of firsts.
The first performance we saw was Capital Cities. I became a HUGE fan after watching their show. They are amazing live! Their awesome set definitely set the tone for the rest of the weekend. Day 2 we decided to stop by Stone Brewery and we ordered pizza from the restaurant next door before getting to the venue. One of the best decisions that weekend. I’m a sucker for stouts and it was my first time trying one from Stone. Their Milk Coffee Stout is on point.
We saw a bit of DVBBS, Kendrick Lamar, Imagine Dragons, Weezer (!!!), Sublime with Rome, Steve Aoki and John Meyer. Made in America closed with Kanye.
Experiencing the music in the heart of Downtown LA, is definitely indescribable. It was a great weekend with great people and awesome music…even though I paid $14 for a Strawberita – I know, I still can’t believe either. Can’t wait for the next one!
