Goldenvoice Announces This Ain’t No Picnic Festival For August 27-28 2022

This Ain’t No Picnic
This Ain’t No Picnic lineup

Goldenvoice did it again! After the announcement of two one-day festivals (Cruel World and Just Like Heaven in May 2022) at Brookside at the Rose Bowl, the same location will host another festival a few months later: This Ain’t No Picnic on August 27 and 28.

The team behind Coachella and Stagecoach (talent buying team Stacy Vee, Jenn Yacoubian, and Rene Contreras) has an unrivaled talent for crafting eclectic line-ups and unique destination festivals, and the magic continues with this brand new one located in the same shady oaks and parkland of Brookside.

This new festival is a large-scale event with six stages of artists from the past, present, and future, spanning cutting-edge indie, hip-hop, dance, underground, and everything in-between.

if The Strokes and LCD Soundsystem are headlining, there are probably acts for everybody in the rest of the lineup: Le Tigre, who are reuniting for their first performance in 12 years, Phoebe Bridgers who seems to be everywhere these days, IDLES, Courtney Barnett, Caroline Polachek, Honey Dijon, Four Tet x Floating Points in a rare combined DJ set, Yves Tumor, Descendents, Wet Leg, Genesis Owusu, Turnstile, Hana Vu, and many more, plus a sixth “stage” for Despacio, a custom-built disco sound system designed by James Murphy and team.

Goldenvoice promises This Ain’t No Picnic to offer “a unique setting for both icons and new discoveries, bridging multiple genres, and mirroring the wide but discerning tastes of Los Angeles music fans.” I see what they mean, they brought together sure values and iconic bands (LCD Soundsystem, The Strokes) with a super long list of names tapping in all genres in order to be sure anyone can find something to like.

Meanwhile, the name is a nod to one of Goldenvoice’s earliest festivals, launched in Irvine, California in 1999, the same year as Coachella. Ad looking at the number of acts playing, this could look like a mini Coachella in a much more convenient location, as Pasadena is just minutes away from Los Angeles.

So if you want to celebrate some of the artists you love across one glorious weekend, register for early access to tickets here as sales start December 9 at 10:00 am PT: 2-Day GA tickets start at $299 + fees and 2-Day VIP are $799 + fees.
