Sure, Los Angeles is expensive as hell (and impossibly expensive if you make under $85K a year), leaving many of us to scrimp and save for our days of fun in the sun. Luckily, we Angelenos are also blessed with a lot of free stuff, like over 300 summer concerts and music festivals happening from now until the end of September. So mark your calendars and quit counting your change — L.A. Weekly's Ultimate List of Free Summer Concerts in L.A.: 2015 edition has come to the rescue.
