Pasadena, CA – May 31, 2018 - Following a hugely successful, sold out inaugural year in 2017, Goldenvoice’s Arroyo Seco Weekend Festival has revealed more details on this year’s festival. Arroyo Seco Weekend is a world class cultural affair, with a stellar music line up that includes Saturday headliners Neil Young + The Promise Of The Real and Jack White with Sunday headliners Kings Of Leon and Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters, as well as a food lovers’ paradise. Festival goers can find an array of sought-after dishes and award-winning restaurants from Los Angeles and Pasadena’s impressive culinary communities. The selection offers a wide range of cuisine, from classic Italian dishes; authentic Mexican; Korean BBQ; to gluten-free and vegan options celebrating Los Angeles’ melting pot of a food scene. Newest additions to the food and beverage program include Los Angeles staples Wexler’s Deli and Barrel & Ashes, along with the beloved Burritos La Palma, and the new and exciting Chilola's Fine Filipino Tacos by Chef Michael Hung, and Chef Michael Mina’s Cal Mare, and more.

Pasadena’s acclaimed Kidspace Museum returns to the festival with a tent of activities to keep children entertained. This year make your own box guitar, jam with the interactive drum circle lead by Rhythm Child, add to the collaborative art project and create your own crafts and concert buttons at the Kidspace Family Jam. And, for the first time, Arroyo Seco Weekend welcomes Pasadena’s The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens with an interactive installation of plant and flower biology and NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory will be on site with an exclusive Intergalactic Travel Lounge.
