Following an extensive three-year renovation project, Los Angeles State Historic Park is finally set to reopen on April 22. Just one month later, on May 20, the 34-acre open space north of Chinatown will host its first major event: a brand-new festival called Skyline: Art, Music, Food, featuring performances by Miike Snow, Duke Dumont, Lido, Eden, Michl, Elohim and Jason Bentley.
Skyline is the first event from Radio Hill, a new collective of concert producers, talent buyers and festival planners, in partnership with KCRW, the Well, Space Yacht and DoLA. In addition to its electronic-leaning music lineup, the festival promises to feature craft food vendors and interactive art installations. Tickets will go on sale tomorrow, Friday, March 31, at noon.
Before it was closed for renovations in April 2014, L.A. State Historic Park hosted numerous large-scale events, including FYF Fest, HARD Summer and the Burning Man–affiliated L.A. Decompression festival. The $20 million renovation project experienced several delays due to drought and environmental contaminants, according to L.A. Curbed, which first reported that a reopening date for the park had finally been confirmed.
