Praise for Arroyo Seco Weekend:
“…it was mostly so pleasant and stress-free that it conjured up a whole new purpose for festival-going.” – Los Angeles Times
“If there’s a Utopian dream to this particular festival, it’s in at least pretending there’s no musical generation gap… an ideal that, for a couple of sweaty days, anyway, seemed surprisingly easy to believe.” – Variety
“Displaying quite the variety of musical genres, this weekend had something for everyone.” – AXS
“It was as much a moment to share with your family as it was to share with friends, and that seems to be the heart of what Arroyo Seco Weekend wants to be. That’s something that few music festivals can claim.” – Consequence of Sound
“…the hometown festival you actually want to go to” – Pasadena Star News
