Echo Park Rising 2016

Back for another run in East Los Angeles, Echo Park Rising returns August 18 – 21 in Echo Park. What started as a small pop-up festival directly after Sunset Junction called it quits, has now grown into a massive four-day event spanning local venues and businesses across Echo Park. As always, all of Echo Park Rising is FREE!

For Angelinos, it’s a neighborhood event to see many of our friends and favorite local bands take the stage in a city we call home. For those visiting Los Angeles, it’s the best way to experience the Los Angeles local and underground music community. Echo Park Rising is a true and authentic music experience that should not be missed.

Echo Park Rising 2016 Lineup is Looking Good

Echo Park Rising 2016 will feature dozens of Los Angeles bands. Some of our favorites include: Chicano Batman, La Luz, the Weirdos, The Frights, Meatbodies, Mind Meld, Birth Defects, Feels, Sex, Stains, Jesus Sons, and a lot more. View the entire Echo Park Rising 2016 lineup here.

New this year, Echo Park Rising will feature a family stage for kids. Organizers have also worked towards putting “Girls To The Front.” Sadly, many music festivals don’t feature enough female-fronted acts, let alone bands with women in them, but this year’s Echo Park Rising is trying to change that.

“In addition to adding a family stage for kids, I felt that it was time that a festival genuinely puts ‘Girls to The Front’ with women-fronted bands, La Luz, Dorothy, Feels, Sex Stains, Shannon Lay and Jaime Wyatt. It’s rare that any festival showcases female musicians and DJ’s so this year I wanted to take this opportunity to highlight the talented women who rock the music industry and Echo Park Rising,” says Elizabeth Garo VP of Talent for Spaceland Presents.

While an abundance of music will be happening just about everywhere in Echo Park, festival-goers can also look forward to the outdoor main stage at the intersection of Liberty and Reservoir which will act as street festival destination. From viewing areas to craft beer gardens, vendors and food trucks— this is where a lot of the action goes down at Echo Park Rising. Additionally, this year’s Echo Park Rising introduces two new performance venues, The Semi-Tropic and The Whisperer.
