The Twilight Concert Series will return to Santa Monica Pier this summer with a lineup that was just announced today. The 33rd annual installment of the popular Thursday night series, billed as "Southern California's largest free concert series," kicks off June 22 with a neo-soul/R&B night featuring Khalid and Bibi Bourelly. Other highlights of this year's offerings include Eric Burdon and The Animals (July 20), Miami Horror (July 27) and a finale show featuring Warpaint (Aug. 17).

The announcement puts to rest any speculation that the long-running concert series' future was in doubt due to skyrocketing costs. Earlier this year, Santa Monica Arts Commission member Phil Brock led a campaign to cancel the series after it was reported that the city of Santa Monica spent nearly $1 million on public safety and security at the series in 2016.

As in past years, DJs from media partner KCRW will present each concert (disclosure: L.A. Weekly is also a partner on the series). The series is co-produced by RH&S Concerts, a partnership between Spaceland Presents and Rum & Humble. See poster below for this year's complete lineup.
