Goldenvoice have a proven track record of hosting murder festivals, as they are behind events like Coachella, Day N Vegas, and Stagecoach. Now, they’re adding a new festival to that list: This picnic will take place August 27 and 28, 2022 at Brookside at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California.
The two-day, six-stage lineup has a rocky foundation and the alternative leans towards it, as the 2022 title is The Strokes, LCD sound system, and Le Tigre performed what is now considered their first and only reunion show of the year. The bill also includes Beach House, Caroline Polachek, Courtney Barnett, Dawn Richard, Deafheaven, Earl Sweatshirt, Four Tet + Floating Points, Genesis Owusu, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Idles, Indigo De Souza, Isaiah Rashad, Jorja Smith, Kaytranada, Kelly Lee Owens, Mac DeMarco, Magdalena Bay, Mdou Moctar, Michelle, Phoebe Bridgers, Romy, Slowthai, Tinashe, Turnstile, Wet Leg, Ying Yang Twins, and Yves Tumor, among others.
If the festival’s name sounds familiar, that’s because it’s a throwback to the original Goldenvoice festival of the same name. Originally This Ain’t No Picnic released in 1999, continued into 2000, and then must skip 2001, last back in 2002. A large number of the artists on that lineup really won’t feel out of place on this year’s bill, by the way: Sleater-Kinney, Beck, Yo La Tengo, Modest Mouse and El-P joined.
