Once Upon a Time in the LBC Tickets
Once Upon a Time in the LBC Music Festival TicketsSince Coachella producer Goldenvoice fashioned the Queen Mary Event Park in Long Beach, Calif., for its festival style concerts in 2017, the site has become home to a vibrant reunion of Compton and the South Bay's hip-hop and soul artists, spanning five decades and more than 30 performers on two stages. The rich and modern music heritage is alive and bumpin' with an at-capacity crowd for two years running. The year 2018 saw the one-day event, then named Summertime in the LBC, set an unforgettable agenda. Rapid online sales prompted the organizers to offer identical performances across two days in 2019. The initial ticket offering sold out the 15,000-person venue in under an hour as fans awaiting the release expressed their anticipation on Twitter leading up to the sale. Coming years look bright for this fairy tale in the making.
A Time to Commemorate Fallen FriendsThe sometimes provocative and turbulent lives of LA's gifted musicians was honored with artistry and sentiment through murals, song covers and multimedia tributes in 2019. Nipsey Hussle, who died tragically on March 31, 2019, was to headline the festival. He was certainly there in spirit, along with Tupac and Easy E. Bone Thugs-N-Harmony dedicated their song "Crossroads," originally penned for their producer Easy-E who died of AIDS in 1995, to Nipsey. YG shared a message about community and service in a custom shirt depicting Nipsey Hussle with angel wings before covering "In the Dark." The Game remembered his friend and collaborator by leading the crowd in a chant and performing a rendition of Tupac's "Hail Mary." The tight fabric of this community gives it the texture and soul that goes beyond beats and hits.
