After a short three-year hiatus, Day of the Dead returns to its spiritual home in Downtown Los Angeles with one of our most massive lineups ever, including: French electro rock icons Justice, delivering one of their insane live sets in what may be their last live show; South African avant-garde rap duo Die Antwoord; and Australian electro stars Knife Party, all performing on the live stage. The lineup includes a second stage featuring some of the best emerging and established acts in house, including Dirtybird stars Shiba San and J.Phlip, as well as some of the label’s rising artists like Rybo b2b Lubelski, Dateless and Omnom. The lineup also includes reggaeton icon Playero, a special Felix Da Housecat and Lee Foss b2b, plus a live set from Rodriguez Jr. Peep the lineup below, and make sure to bump our official Day of the Dead 2018 playlist, which includes a track from every artist on the bill.
Following a multi-year, multi-million-dollar renovation, Los Angeles State Historic Park reopened in April 2017. It was the original home of Day of the Dead when it first launched in 2012 and has since hosted muiltiple installments of the festival. Located only steps away from the Metro Gold Line and just a mile from Union Station in Downtown Los Angeles, the venue is a 34-acre, grassy outdoor oasis in the heart of the city.
Day of the Dead is themed around the very-much-alive and colorful Mexican Día de Muertos holiday (think Disney’s/Pixar’s Coco!), which celebrates and remembers the wonderful lives of our friends and family members who have died.
