Arroyo Seco is a two-day music festival which will be making its debut this summer. Produced by Goldenvoice, the team behind Coachella and FYF Fest, it's sure to be a fun time. Though younger than its siblings Arroyo Seco definitely has an older vibe, eschewing electronic music for a weekend packed with rock, soul, jazz and funk legends and up and comers. Aside from its impressive musical bill, Arroyo Seco will also offer an impressive food lineup featuring some of the best chefs Los Angles has to offer.
