“On the heels of the park’s momentous 10th anniversary in 2022, Gloria Molina Grand Park is excited to celebrate another milestone: the 50th anniversary of Hip-Hop. The park is proud to acknowledge Hip-Hop’s deep influence on the many artists, performances and experiences that The Music Center’s park team has curated over the past decade. It will be an honor to show our appreciation of all that Hip-Hop has contributed to L.A.’s music scene and culture,” said Robert Gonzalez, newly appointed director of Gloria Molina Grand Park. “As we look forward to the park’s next 10 years, we are paving the way to a new era of signature events at the park for everyone. The park, as always, will be the best place in L.A. to celebrate July 4th with amazing music, top entertainment, food, friends and family. Our 3-D drone show will be icing on the cake!”
The nearly six-hour festivity geared for the whole family—and their four-legged friends—includes music performances on two stages showcasing L.A.’s global and diverse sounds. The lineup for the Backyard Stage (the park’s lawn next to City Hall, between Broadway and Spring Street) includes DJ Ethos; a talented cohort of local youth musicians known as The Harmony Project; dance troupe The GR818ers; and triple headliners: legendary Hip-Hop artist Bahamadia and famed DJ Cut Chemist with rapper Chali 2na. Backyard Stage host Maya Jupiter presents ARTIVISTA, featuring Medusa, Georgia Anne Muldrow and Jessa Calderon, who are planning a few surprises related to Hip-Hop’s 50th anniversary!
Not to be outdone, the Front Yard Stage (the park’s Performance Lawn between Grand Avenue and Hill Street) will feature some of L.A.’s most popular DJs—The Beat Junkies, Institute of Sound and The Ladies of Sound—turning up the bass all night long.
