Twilight on the Pier is Back

Twilight on the Pier is the free weekly music festival as iconic as the Pier itself. Now in it’s 35th consecutive year, Twilight continues the long-standing tradition of celebrating emerging and established artists and sounds from around the world. Featuring art, an all new comedy stage, eats, wine and beer garden, games and interactive activations.

Whether you’re casual concert-goer or a culture-seeker, Twilight on the Pier has something for everyone.


The Pier welcomes more than 9 million visitors annually from all over the globe, and the concert series showcases performers that reflect both our diverse audience and the many cultures throughout Southern California that influence the art and music that we enjoy every day. Twilight’s “Local Meets Global” theme celebrates different cultural soundscapes, mixing classic world music with pop jams and indie folk. We’re highlighting artists who live and create in different countries, as well as artists who draw inspiration from those countries but live in LA, in an effort to provide our audience with a deeper understanding of what world music has to offer, and how it influences artists right here at home.
