The Strokes, LCD Soundsystem and an electro-rocker reunion Le Tigre will headline a sort of new festival coming to Pasadena next summer.
This Ain’t No Picnic festival will take place at Brookside by the Rose Bowl on August 27-28, organizers announced on December 3.
Produced by Goldenvoice, the event is a revival of the original This Ain’t No Picnic festivals at Oak Canyon Ranch in Orange County in the late 1990s and early 2000s, which focused on independent and alternative acts.
The first was held a few months before Goldenvoice launched the first Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival at the Empire Polo Club in Indio.
And the lineup of This Ain’t No Picnic recalls Coachella’s past, not only with headliners, but with artists such as Beach House, Kaytranada, Descendents, Kaytranada, Four Tet and Floating Points, Courtney Barnett, Jorja. Smith, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Earl Sweatshirt, Turnstile, Honey Dijon and Yves Tumeur.
The lineup also includes Idles, Phoebe Bridgers, Genesis Owusu, Caroline Polachek and Wet Leg.
This Ain’t No Picnic is the only reunion show Le Tigre has on the books for 2022.
