Stones Throw Picnic

Performance Dates

  • Saturday, July 5 @ 7:00pm

Update (as of 7.3.14) Due to increased vigilance surrounding the 4th of July holiday, the LAPD has informed us that our audience is not allowed to BYOB for this event, but you will be able to purchase beer and wine from our onsite bar.


Update (as of 7.1.14) We regret to inform you that Madlib will not be performing at Stones Throw Picnic due to a family illness. This was a matter that could not be foreseen, and our support and understanding  go out to him and his family.

From Stones Throw Picnic curator Wyatt Closs: “As his broader family of fans, Stones Throw Picnic will miss Madlib’s presence and talent tremendously. Our time together will honor him, as it will be one filled with good people and great music. With their sets, The Lions, DaM-FunK and Peanut Butter Wolf of the Stones Throw Records label will bring to life an ambitious, chocked-full day.  And don’t rule out a special guest or two.”
