Echo Park Rising Lineup Announced: Chicano Batman to Headline

9:41 AM PDT on July 21, 2016

Echo Park Rising has just released their 2016 lineup, with local heroes Chicano Batman at the very top of the poster. The sixth annual fest will this year expand to even more venues and during its four-day run Aug. 18-21.  Check out the full line-up here. Nice work on the flyer by Echo Park's very own Studio Number One, who included both a taco and a taco truck in the logo. Right on.

Spaceland Presents, who created the festival, put a special emphasis on female-fronted bands this year, according to VP of Talent Elizabeth Garo, who says  "I felt that it was time that a festival genuinely puts ‘Girls to The Front’ with women-fronted bands, La Luz, Dorothy, Feels, Sex Stains, Shannon Lay and Jaime Wyatt. It’s  rare that any festival showcases female musicians and DJ’s so this year I wanted to take this opportunity to highlight the talented women who rock the music industry."


There will be an outdoor main stage this year at the intersection of Liberty and Reservoir that will include viewing areas, craft beer gardens, vendors and food trucks. The two new performance venues are The Semi-Tropic and The Whisperer and they will curate their own lineups.

The full list of venues and shops include: 826la Time Travel Mart, Ballard’s Artwork Framing, Bedrock.LA, Blue Bottle Coffee, BlueCollar Working Dog, Button Mash, Cosmic Vinyl, The Echo & Echoplex, El Centro Del Pubelo, City Council District 13, Esqueleto, Echo Park Farmers Market, The Holloway, Goldroom, iam8bit, I Echo Park, iam8bit, Infrasonic Mastering, Lassens Natural Foods and Vitamins, Law Offices of Trish Newman, Lemon Frog Shop Vintage Bazaar, Little Joy Cocktails, The Lost Knight, Lot 1 Cafe, Masa of Echo Park, Memento Mori, Mohawk Bend, The New California Barbershop, Ostrich Farm, PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), El Prado Bar, The Semi-Tropic, Sembly, The Short Stop, Spacedust, Stories Books & Cafe, Studio Number One, Sunset Beer Company, TAIX French Restaurant, Taza cafe, Trencher, Vintage King, Vons, Woodcat, Worship, and Xoia Vietnamese Eats.

About Echo Park Rising

Echo Park Rising was created by the Echo Park community as a pop-up impromptu street fair after the 3-decade-old Sunset Junction was shuttered by city officials. The result was a new kind of celebration, one that participants said better mirrored the spirit of the community by creating an open environment to build upon a thriving community celebrating the efforts of the innovative businesses, local eateries, artists and musicians that call Echo Park home.

Echo Park Rising neighborhood festival is presented  by the Echo Park Chamber of Commerce and produced by Spaceland Presents.
