Here are our suggestions of things to do in Los Angeles this weekend…
Make Music Pasadena
Every June, Pasadena’s walkable downtown streets host Make Music Pasadena. The free, all-ages summer music festival manages to squeeze more than 150 concerts into a single day. While the lineup mostly features local up-and-coming talent, Make Music Pasadena always manages to nab a few indie darlings on the verge of hitting it big; past headliners include Best Coast, Cults, Grimes, Surfer Blood and Yacht. Before you make your way to the San Gabriel Valley, here’s everything you need to know about Make Music Pasadena 2016.
