Goldenvoice is really decided to use this beautiful green hilly field at Brookside at the Rose Bowl that they have acquired a few years ago. It is already the site for one-day festivals like Just Like Heaven and Cruel World in May but there are so many spring and summer days, especially in Los Angeles. The location is perfect for a mini Coachella-like festival, especially because it is much closer to the city.
There’s a new series of concerts announced at the Brookside at the Rose Bowland it’s called Re:SET. This time, it’s a bit different because it’s smaller. Music festivals can be overwhelming and exhausting: you either move from one stage to the next one all day long or wait for hours standing on the rail to see your favorite bands up close and personal. To be front row for the Cure at Cruel World in 2019, I stood in the same spot for 8-9 hours. I was also interested in the other bands that played the entire day, but it’s not always the case.
So if you are tired of big festivals, Re:SET may be for you because it will feature a series of small lineups across three nights, available either individually or as a three-day ticket. You will be able to see Steve Lacy, Boygenius, and LCD Soundsystem on three separate nights, with a limited number of acts supporting them. Each headliner has curated the lineup for their respective day. For example, Boygenius will be bringing along indie standouts Clairo, Dijon, and Bartees Strange, while LCD Soundsystem booked one-third of The xx, Jamie xx, the explosive UK rock band IDLES, bounce music pioneer Big Freedia, and experimental multi-instrumentalist L’Rain. Steve Lacy will keep a focus on genre-bending artists with James Blake, Toro y Moi, and Fousheé.
Here are the respective dates for Re:SET: On Friday, June 2: Steve Lacy, James Blake, Toro y Moi, and Fousheé. On Saturday, June 3, Boygenius (Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers, and Lucy Dacus), Clairo, Dijon, and Bartees Strange. And on Sunday, June 4, LCD Soundsystem, Jamie xx, Idles, and Big Freedia. It’s reasonable, just like the prices as tickets start at $99.50 for an individual show ($275 for VIP), while a three-day pass starts at $250 (VIP $650). You can already register for easy access, and the presale will begin on Tuesday, February 7 at 10 am.
Of course, the formula is too good to be a one-time thing and the series will tour across the US. Here are all the dates:
June 2-4 – Brookside at the Rose Bowl, Los Angeles, CA
