- SOCAL'S LARGEST FREE CONCERT SERIES
Twilight Concerts are back! The ultimate summer concert series is returning for eight unforgettable shows at the Santa Monica Pier. Starting on June 22nd through August 17th (skipping July 6th).
Known as one of the premier free concert series throughout the U.S., the annual genre-crossing line-up offers musical exploration to guests at one of the most iconic beaches in America.
Each week, THE TWILIGHT CONCERT SERIES will include two acts and nod to a specific musical genre.

Additionally getting to THE TWILIGHT CONCERT SERIES this year will be easier than ever with the opening of the new Expo train line running from Union Station through West Los Angeles to Santa Monica, making travel to the venue a seamless experience. The city has become closer, enabling music fans easier access to THE TWILIGHT CONCERT SERIES for the first time ever on public rail. Beyond the rail line, Breeze (the City of Santa Monica's public bike share program), a variety of ride share services and public lots throughout Santa Monica, offer a choice of options for those planning to attend the series.
