Arroyo Seco Weekend, a new festival that will take place June 24 and 25 at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif., not only will bring an extremely impressive lineup including Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Mumford & Sons, Weezer, The Shins and many more, but it will also give festival-goers amazing food options.
Food lineups at festivals have become almost as exciting as the musical talent itself. Arroyo Seco Weekend will be no different—and with the organizers behind Coachella and Stagecoach putting together this festival as well, there of course, are going to be impeccable food options.
According to a press release from the organizers, “The selection offers a wide range of cuisine, from classic Italian dishes, authentic Mexican, to Korean BBQ and gluten-free and vegan options celebrating Los Angeles' melting pot of a food scene.”
While of course there will be greasy, food truck hot dogs and fries, Arroyo Seco will also provide some healthier food options for those who choose not to overindulge and pretend their diets and health don’t matter for the weekend. As part of their campaign to bring awareness about heart disease, AMGEN’s Breakaway From Heart Disease campaign encourages people to make healthier choices in their diet, whether at home or at a music festival. Here are three food options at Arroyo Seco that will provide a delicious meal while helping you maintain your healthy lifestyle.
LocoL - While their restaurant is considered “fast food,” LocoL is anything but that. LocoL’s food, which has four locations scattered around California including a food truck is freshly made from scratch in their restaurants, so you know it’s never been frozen or processed.
Sawyer - Based out of Silver Lake, Los Angeles, Sawyer will also be posted up at Arroyo Seco, and their menu has a whole section called “light fare.” Items on this part of the menu include salads, soups, quinoa and kale with a twist so you will still experience that festival food experience without feeling guilty after.
TiKiFish - Another great, lighter food option at the festival will be TiKiFish, where the ever-so-popular poke bowls will live. There is nothing like some refreshing ingredients on a hot summer California day, and poke bowls will make sure you’re eating light, but still feeling satisfied after.
Take a look below at the full food lineup, as well as some of the featured chefs at the festival.
