ALL MY FRIENDS’ inaugural festival will be situated on the edge of Downtown Los Angeles’ Arts District at ROW DTLA, a creative space and shopping destination. Its three stages will be immersed in the industrial backdrop of one of Los Angeles’ major produce markets and former home of American Apparel (whose slogan‘Made In Downtown LA’ still is prominently displayed on one of ROW DTLA’s main buildings). The revitalized historic setting makes a unique location for LA’s only major music event happening in the city this summer.

Festival curator Gary Richards (aka DESTRUCTO) told Hilary Hughes of Billboard (5/18), “It isn’t on ’10’ the whole time. People can come and relax; they’re not wound up from beginning to end.” He adds, “All the cool people in my life, I know through music… ‘All My Friends’ really has a deep rooted meaning.”
Outside festival grounds, fans can take in shopping, restaurants and incredible murals painted by local artists throughout the complex. More information can be found at https://rowdtla.com/
