The Getty Center’s free concert series has officially returned for the summer, featuring a whole new lineup of various artists from all different genres. Beginning last Saturday, June 1, and running through August 24, Off the 405 is ready to take over the outdoor stage at the museum on certain Saturdays throughout the summer months.

Concertgoers can expect the availability of tickets for future performances to be released three weeks in advance of each performer’s date.

Attendees are permitted to bring their own picnic items, however, food and beverages will be available for purchase on-site. People are encouraged to arrive early so that they can enjoy the many exhibits inside the museum before the concert.

For those driving to the Getty Center, parking fees are still in place, with the cost going down periodically throughout the day. All-day parking admission is $25, but after 3:00 p.m. the price drops to $15, and after 6:00 p.m. it dips to $10.

Additionally, there is a “Pay Once, Park Twice” option available for visitors who wish to experience not only the Getty Center but also the Getty Villa together in one day. The option allows visitors to pay a $15 parking fee, giving them access to parking at both locations.

Getty Center is excited to bring back the concert series, which debuted in 2009 and has gone on to feature multiple critically acclaimed artists.

Off the 405 is the Getty Center’s annual outdoor summer concert series, which brings together some of today’s most exciting bands on a memorable stage set before breathtaking sunsets and surrounded by awe-inspiring architecture.

Looking at this year’s lineup, Hailu Mergia is an Ethiopian-born musician and composer, exceedingly regarded for his dynamic work as a keyboardist and accordion player. He initially rose to prominence in the 1970s and 80s as a member of the well-known Ethiopian jazz and funk group the Walias Band.

Known for his mind-bending experimental and cross-genre approach to music, Jasper Marsalis has created Slauson Malone 1—a performance piece that explores the intersections of performance art and pop music. Combining various genres, Slauson Malone 1 was recently featured at the Park Avenue Armory in New York.

Helado Negro, or Roberto Carlos Lange, born in south Florida to Ecuadorian-immigrant parents, is a multi-instrumentalist who produces, engineers, and mixes all of his music. As a solo enigma, he crafts and populates his own sort of sonic universe, bringing a technical degree in Computer Art and Animation from Savannah College of Art and Design to his work.

Julia Holter, best known for her avant-garde and experimental approach, is an L.A.-based singer-songwriter and composer who recently released her 6th studio album, Something in the Room She Moves. Her latest album marks new and exciting territory in the vast, experimental realm she has created thus far.

Lastly, co-founders Jeremy Earl and Jarvis Taveniere created the musical group Woods in Brooklyn in 2004 and have since grown into a genuine independent institution of their own. With a psychedelic and rustic sound that pulls elements of lo-fi indie, rock, and folk to fully sculpt their presence. Woods proudly curates the beloved “Woodiest Festival” each year in Accord, New York, infusing a broad range of groups from the jazz cosmoverse of the Sun Ra Arkestra and exploratory legends Yo La Tengo, and beyond.
