The Eclectic offers something for everyone, with 11 music stages featuring everything from jazz to indie rock, up-and-coming singer-songwriters to LA music scene veterans. Many participating musicians are South Pasadena favorites, including the local Chicago cover band South Pasadena Transit Authority, on the Gold Line stage at 4:15pm, followed by David Plenn at 5:30pm. HOB opens the Old Focals stage at 3:00pm, and The Drive closes out the night at Griffins of Kinsale. Also returning this year are the Elliott Caine Quintet, JaKL, Jessica Gerhardt, Flamenco Souls, Sophie Reynolds, and Twanguero – among others. These are just a taste of the dozens of bands and musicians participating in this free, day-long festival!

Music, art, and commerce intertwine throughout the festival, with South Pasadena’s shops, galleries, and eateries treating visitors to pop-up galleries and special performances throughout the day. The festival’s Artisan’s Alley, a curated marketplace with dozens of vendors offering unique and hand-crafted, and vintage items, give Eclectic attendees more to explore while taking in the music.

Festivalgoers are encouraged to bike, walk, or take the Metro Gold Line to South Pasadena station at the heart of the fun. A free bike valet service will be available, courtesy of South Pas Active Streets. Those arriving by car can park at the Arroyo Golf Course, take the free Artmobile shuttle to Mission Street, or park in one of South Pasadena’s free public parking areas.
