Nothing says summer like a picnic on the grass, grooving to live music. Here in Southern California, you can hear music almost every night of the week at a variety of locations. Two of the best are in Pasadena and MacArthur Park.

Over the next two months, Levitt Pavilion will host 100 free, family friendly concerts at Memorial Park in Old Pasadena and MacArthur Park in Los Angeles featuring an eclectic array of musical acts from around the world – as well as a few local favorites. Artistic Director Eddie Cota is here to give us a taste of the summer sounds to come.

A sampling of the groups coming to Levitt Pavilion this summer:
