The line-up for the second annual Arroyo Seco Weekend has just been announced and it is incredible. This year's festival will once again take place near the Rose Bowl in beautiful Pasadena, Calif., June 23-24. Gracing the three stages this year will be a host of must-see artists, and in between sets a carefully curated culinary experience like none other will be on hand for hungry festival lovers.
Headlining the festival on June 23 will be blues rocker Jack White, who is just returning to touring after taking a three year hiatus. He is absolutely one of the most electrifying performers to ever grace a stage, and his presence alone is reason enough to pick up tickets for the weekend. Neil Young + Promise of the Real along with the Pretenders will also lend a hand that day.
On June 24 the Kings of Leon and former Led Zeppelin lead singer Robert Plant will be there with the Sensational Shape Shifters to thrill fans. Third Eye Blind will also play that Sunday night. If fans have never seen this band live, they are missing out. They kill it every time with their energy and love for the crowd (just check out this performance at Life is Beautiful).
A variety of music genres will be represented throughout the two-day festival. Other artists include Jeff Goldblum (yes, that Jeff Goldblum from "Thor: Ragnarok"; and if you have any doubt, he absolutely killed it last year...one of the stand-out performances of the weekend) performing with the Mildred Snitzer Orchestra, jazz saxophonist Kamasi Washington, country singer Margo Price, Brazilian guitarist Seu Jorge, blues guitarist-singer Gary Clark Jr., Alanis Morissette, Prince’s backing band The Revolution and many more.
