The 8th Annual Make Music Pasadena just announced the lineup for this year's festival which takes place on June 6th, from 11 am until 11 pm.  Make Music Pasadena is one of my favorite festivals of the year, boasting over 150 bands performing on 5 main stages as well as over 30 additional stages and performance venues all over downtown Pasadena.  A free show, which attracts more than 50,000 people a year,  Make Music Pasadena has, in the previous years, featured some the best musical acts in the music industry such as Best Coast, Grimes, Grouplove, Soko, Zola Jesus and The Cults.

This year, Make Music Pasadena will return with another doozy of a lineup that will feature Nick Waterhouse, How to Dress Well,  Kishi Bashi, Sir Sly and Hundred Waters. 

Make Music Pasadena is a 100% non-profit event, generously funded by our sponsors and donations from our supporters. Donating just became easier with a quick link on the website:
