Neil Young, Jack White and Robert Plant will play Arroyo Seco Weekend, the popular Pasadena fest where Tom Petty played last year. Dates are June 23-24.
Goldenvoice is the promoter of Arroyo Seco, which appeared to establish a successful local following from all appearances last year. Estimates put the crowds at upwards of 30,000 in 2017.
This year, Neil Young, The Pretenders, Alanis Morisette
Last year, Dawes, Jeff Goldblum, Alabama Shakes and Charles Bradley supported headliner Petty. Petty and Bradley made what were considered among their last public appearances at the 2017 Arroyo Seco Weekend.
Weekend festivals help generate revenue for the local economy. The Pasadena area can claim an increase in local spending to the tune of of thousands of dollars, anecdotally speaking.
