The summer season is on with 14 weeks of concerts! Here’s the lineup…
We have been pining for those balmy summer nights with good food and good music at the Hollywood Bowl for a whole year now. Thankfully, the 2021 summer season is going ahead with 14 weeks of concerts starting in July. The news came earlier this year, following a fluster of reopenings across the city and Governor Gavin Newsom’s announcement of a full reopening of the state on June 15.
But before the season kicks off, there will be four free concerts in May and June for healthcare workers, first responders, and essential workers as a gesture of gratitude for the incredible work they’ve done for the city during the pandemic. Three of the concerts have been created in partnership Kaiser Permanente and will feature performances by LA Phil Music and Artistic Director Gustavo Dudamel.
The lineup includes Christina Aguilera, Gustavo Dudamel, Kool & the Gang, Ziggy Marley, H.E.R., James Blake and more. You can find the full season calendar online here. For the final free concert, local artists Thundercat and Flying Lotus will take the stage on June 12, which marks their first performance since winning a Grammy this year.
Capacity is limited in accordance with state and county guidance which will allow for an audience of roughly 4,000 people but is likely to increase further into the summer as the situation continues to improve.
As expected, there will be health and safety measures in place which will be guided by officials at the LA County Department of Public Health and Kaiser Permanente. Mor information about what to expect will be released at a later stage.
On May 27, personalized concert packages will become available for music fans and general public tickets go on sale on June 1. Any credit can be used against tickets throughout the year or carried over to 2022. More information can be found here.
