The Festival, which started in 2004 as a low-key showcase of local underground artists, will celebrate its 15th year! These days, it is anything but a showcase of underground talent. It has instead evolved into one of the nation's largest music festivals and one of LA's best. Attended by thousands, there will be multiple stages scattered throughout Exposition Park and feature music from some of today's top talent, including Janet Jackson, St. Vincent, The XX, Florence & The Machine, Future, Jayda G, Neil Frances, Prettiest Eyes, Rhye, Youth Code and many others.

Intercontinental Los Angeles Downtown
Situated inside the stunning 73-story Wilshire Grand Center, this month-old hotel is already one of the hottest places to lay your weary head in all of Los Angeles. Expect plush accommodations, state of the art amenities, and of course, those views! Be sure to make your way up to the 73rd floor and grab a drink a Spire 73, the tallest open-air bar in the North America.

The Ace Hotel
Since opening 2014, The Ace has established itself as one of the hottest destinations in downtown LA. The hotel, which occupies the former United Artists building manages to combine old-Hollywood charm with a hip, modern sensibility that's a magnet for the cool kids. While there are plenty of dining and drinking options within walking distance of The Ace, check out Upstairs, the hotel's ever-popular pool lounge for punch bowls, snacks, and a refreshing dip.

Freehand Hotel
Situated in DTLA, this popular hotel is in the historic Commercial Exchange building and offers one of a kind suites, premium hotel rooms and incredible decor. The hotel is just an 8 minute walk from the Metro station too, and 1 mile from the STAPLES Center. It's a short ride from Exposition Park as well.
