Ford Theatre‘s JAM Sessions take place at the Ford AND at public sites throughout Los Angeles County (Pomona, San Fernando and Newhall)! The offerings are diverse from Celtic dance and swing to Indian dance and Hulu, Salsa and Funk. Best part? You’ll be invited to dance, participate and co-create! Ready to go?

Farmers Market hosts Friday Night Music, Fridays from 7 – 9 pm on the West Patio. The food is great and entertainment is free. Friday Night Music’s menu is family-friendly but by no means boring: take a look!

Levitt Pavilion’s Summer Music Festival in Downtown Pasadena is wholesome enough for the youngest audience members and exciting for the rest of us. The entertainment choices range from Latin, African and pop concerts to a marionette show… Must check out!

California Plaza is the home of summer’s Grand Performances and features a spectrum of multicultural performing arts including concerts, theatre and yes, disco! Take it in!

Traditionally, arts are inclusive. In Los Angeles summer entertainment – in its many forms – is available to audiences of all income brackets AND free!

DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES TO HOST FIRST ANNUAL CHRISTMASLAND FESTIVAL AND CONCERT SERIES

Galpin Ford Presents KOST 103.5’s ChristmasLand Featuring Classic Holiday Activities, Outdoor Entertainment, Ice Skating, and Three Live Concert Events December 7th-11th, 2014

With A Special Concert Performance by International Music Group and American Music Award Nominee Hillsong

Christmas Festival And Concerts In Downtown Los Angeles

KOST 103.5, L.A.’s home for holiday music, announced the launch of ChristmasLand, a Christmas Street Festival and concert series presented by Galpin Ford, the largest Ford dealer in the world, in partnership with AEG and WME. The pop-up theme park will take over world renowned entertainment center L.A. LIVE in downtown Los Angeles, and feature a Santa experience, skating rink, snow park, human snow globe with photo opportunities, dining village, Ferris wheel, and live entertainment on the ChristmasLand Main Stage, as well as Dickens’ Carolers who will roam the festival with a brass quintet.

KOST 103.5 is traditionally one of the most listened to stations in the U.S. when they go to all-Christmas music. “Over the years, KOST 103.5 has become synonymous with the Christmas season by creating an incomparable excitement through the power of music,” said Dave Drever, ChristmasLand’s Managing Director and founder of Freely, a media company represented by WME set to launch in 2015. “Freely is thrilled to serve the city of Los Angeles with the Christmas spirit where people can celebrate with their families and friends, and are grateful for the support of Galpin Ford. As community leaders working in Southern California for 30+ years, their values align perfectly with this event.”

“Each and every year, KOST 103.5 helps you feel good for the holidays. There’s nothing quite like hearing your favorite Christmas songs and the memories they evoke. We are excited to help create new memories for our listeners and their families by helping to bring the holidays to life at this unique live event,” said Michael La Crosse, KOST 103.5 Program Director.

ChristmasLand will officially open on Sunday, December 7th at 3PM with an opening ceremony in the ChristmasLand Street Festival located on Chick Hearn Court between STAPLES Center and Nokia Plaza at L.A. Live. The ceremony will be followed by a live performance by Grammy nominated recording artist Frankie J, a multiplatinum selling recording artist and Southern California Native. The evening will close with a special tribute to Jenni Rivera, the Mexican-American Latin Grammy nominated singer, who sold 15 gold, 15 platinum, and 5 double-platinum records internationally before her tragic death in a plane crash at the age of 43 in 2012. The week of ChristmasLand will mark the two year anniversary of the singer’s death. The Rivera family will honor Jenni with a special performance by a surprise guest.

ChristmasLand will also include a two night live concert series taking place at Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE December 10th and 11th. Tickets for the ChristmasLand concert series at Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE can be purchased at: http://www.axs.com/.

Hillsong will be the headline performer at ChristmasLand on Wednesday, December 10th. Hillsong Music consisting of Hillsong Worship, United and Young & Free have been influencing Christian music throughout the globe for the last few decades with songs that have shaped contemporary Christian Worship music such as ‘Shout To Lord, ‘Mighty To Save’, ‘The Stand’, ‘Hosanna’ and most recently with United’s ‘Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)’. ‘Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)’ has spent 43 weeks at number one on Billboard’s Hot Christian Songs chart, and currently in the Billboard Hot 100. Next April, Warner Bros and Alcon Entertainment will release a full-length feature, ‘HILLSONG – LET HOPE RISE’, (www.hillsongmovie.com) in theaters worldwide. For this special L.A. concert, they will be led by Taya Smith, lead vocalist on ‘Oceans’ and Dove award winning singer-songwriter Reuben Morgan, the head of music at Hillsong London, the largest church in Europe.

Hillsong will also be joined by Kari Jobe, who won Artist of the Year at this year’s Dove Awards, and MSC, the Los Angeles based worship band of Mosaic, bringing a uniquely west coast sound to the world. Grammy Award winning Gospel singer, Tasha Cobbs will open the concert performing with the Faithful Central Choir, along with a special performance by singers Brian and Jenn Johnson.

Emmy nominated Irish music sensation, Celtic Woman will close out the five night event, with a special Home for Christmas concert on the stage of Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE, performing their timeless Christmas songs accompanied by a full symphony orchestra. The all-female Irish ensemble, who has sold over 8 million records worldwide, will perform vibrant live renditions of such favorites as “Silent Night,” “I’ll Be Home for Christmas,” and “Joy to the World.”
