Calling all ’90s indie-rock geeks! In a throwback nod to the original 1999 and 2000 festivals, This Ain’t No Picnic Festival is coming back next year. The fest will return August 27-28 at Brookside by the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California.
It is set to host the first and only Le Tigre reunion show of 2022 and will feature headliners The Strokes and LCD Soundsystem, and performers including Phoebe Bridgers, Beach House, Jorja Smith, Kaytranada, IDLES, Four Tet + Floating Points, Honey Dijon, Wet Leg, Genesis Owusu, Courtney Barnett, Descendents, Yves Tumor, Godspeed You!, Black Emperor, Caroline Polachek, Turnstile, Earl Sweatshirt, among many more.
If that’s not enough, a sixth “stage” for Despacio, a custom-built disco sound system was designed by LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy.
The 1999 This Ain’t No Picnic was headlined by Sonic Youth, Sleater-Kinney, and Guided by Voices the weekend of July 4 in Irving, California. Beck, Yo La Tengo, Built To Spill, and Modest Mouse headlined the 2000 fest on Sunday, July 2, at Oak Canyon Ranch at Irving Lake, California.
