On Sunday, Sept. 30 the LA Phil kicks off its centennial season with Celebrate LA!, a FREE celebration with hundreds of musicians, artists, dancers, family activities and more.

Produced in partnership with CicLAvia and Community Arts Resources (CARS), Celebrate LA! will be an epic, history-making festival that showcases L.A.’s creative spirit. The eight-mile street party will feature 1,800 musicians, artists, and dancers coming together to perform at the festival’s six hubs and along the route itself.

The evening culminates with a free concert at the Hollywood Bowl, where Gustavo Dudamel will lead the Los Angeles Philharmonic and welcome very special guests – including Katy Perry, Herbie Hancock, Kali Uchis, Youth Orchestra Los Angeles (YOLA), and more to the Bowl stage.
