Downtown LA hosts the H20 Festival this summer, a bilingual, cross-genre party that lasts all day long and features top acts in hip hop, rock and Latin music.

H2O 2013

Aug 17 2013

Featuring top musical talent in two languages, the H20 Festival at LA State Historic Park is a reflection of the city’s diversity and features a full day of fun in the sun with headliners Pitbull, A Tribe Called Quest and Roberto Tapia. Hear hip hop, rock and Latin music and enjoy treats from local food trucks, beer gardens and gaming areas.


Bringing different community groups together in the name of live music and summer fun, the H20 Festival returns to the Los Angeles State Historic Park on Saturday, August 17 for a daylong showcase of cross-genre talent. H20 stands for Hispanic 2.0, and this bilingual, multicultural event celebrates the diverse arts scene in LA and features some of the hottest acts in English and Latin music. Headlined by two very major and very different rap artists, Pitbull and A Tribe Called Quest, H20 Festival will no doubt attract the city’s hip hop heads, while the event’s powerful Latin contingent (Roberto Tapia, La Santa Cecilia, Frankie J) will bring in a family-friendly crowd. It all makes for an exciting day of music in the sunshine, with a little bit of something for everyone. At H20 Festival there will also be several beer gardens and numerous local food trucks inside the venue, including Kogi BBQ, Smokin Willies and MeSoHungry. This event also features a vendor village near the entrance, and two stages of live music throughout the day. Misting stations and plenty of hydration options will be on hand for cooling off, and you’ll also find gaming areas, rest spaces and surprise appearances by Univision media personalities.


Hate dealing with the crowds at music festivals? Book a VIP package for preferred seating and you’ll walk right up to the stage with plenty of standing room, and no shoving.

Please note – no cameras will be allowed into the festival unless you have a press pass. Mobile phones with camera capabilities are okay. Don’t forget to bring cash for the food and beverage vendors!
