ALL MY FRIENDS, the new major music festival coming to downtown Los Angeles this summer, has announced set times for the two-day event.
39 of the coolest and most current acts in hip-hop, R&B and dance music will perform across three stages: The AMFAMFAMF stage will highlight the fest’s ‘Big Six’ headliners RL GRIME, GUCCI MANE and JHENE AIKO (Saturday, August 18) and M.I.A., JAMIE XX and ARMAND VAN HELDEN (Sunday, August 19); Space Yacht, Hollywood clubland’s hottest night, will present the Friendzone stage with acts like CLAPTONE, CHRIS LAKE, DESTRUCTO, ANNA LUNOE and more; And the BFF stage will showcase the best of L.A. with CUT CHEMIST, DJ NU-MARK, GODDOLLARS (A Club Called Rhonda) and THEE MIKE B.
ALL MY FRIENDS’ inaugural festival will be situated on the edge of Downtown Los Angeles’ Arts District at ROW DTLA, a creative space and shopping destination. Its three stages will be immersed in the industrial backdrop of one of Los Angeles’ major produce markets and former home of American Apparel (whose slogan ‘Made In Downtown LA’ still is prominently displayed on one of ROW DTLA’s main buildings). The revitalized historic setting makes a unique location for LA’s only major music event happening in the city this summer.
The ALL MY FRIENDS line-up highlights hip-hop acts Yo Gotti, Smokepurpp and Sheck Wes, R&B artists Ravyn Lenae andDarkwave Duchess Abra, cutting-edge producers Soul Clap, Jubilee, Monte Booker and Grandson, and LA favorites Jason Bentley and LA Leakers just to name a few.
Festival curator Gary Richards (aka DESTRUCTO) told Hilary Hughes of Billboard (5/18), “It isn’t on ’10’ the whole time. People can come and relax; they’re not wound up from beginning to end.”
He adds, “All the cool people in my life, I know through music… ‘All My Friends’ really has a deep-rooted meaning.”
Outside festival grounds, fans can take in shopping, restaurants and incredible murals painted by local artists throughout the complex. More information can be found here.
