Incredible-Looking This Ain’t No Picnic Fest Will Bring The Strokes, LCD Soundsystem, A Le Tigre Reunion, & More To Pasadena Next Summer

Goldenvoice, the company behind Coachella, Stagecoach, Just Like Heaven, and Cruel World, has announced a new festival in Pasadena called This Ain’t No Picnic. It’s named after a fest that Goldenvoice launched in Irvine, California in 1999, and while it may not be a picnic, it does sound like a good time.

The Strokes and LCD Soundsystem are headlining, Le Tigre are reuniting for their first performance in 12 years, and the rest of the lineup includes Phoebe Bridgers, Beach House, Turnstile, Earl Sweatshirt, Courtney Barnett, Deafheaven, Mac DeMarco, Caroline Polachek, a combined Four Tet x Floating Points DJ set, Yves Tumor, Descendents, Wet Leg, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Kaytranada, Nothing, Isaiah Rashad, Romy, Shame, Slowthai, Dawn Richard, Jorja Smith, Indigo De Souza, Julia Jacklin, Kelly Lee Owens, King Woman, La Lala, Magdalena Bay, Mdou Moctar, Mike Watt, Spirit Of The Beehive, Tinashe, and more.

Everything will be spread out across five stages at Brookside At The Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California on August 27 and 28. There’s also a sixth stage for Despacio, a custom-built disco sound system designed by James Murphy. Check out the full lineup below.
