Who’s performing this year? What day? What time?
The 2019 LA Pride Festival will take place on Saturday, June 8th (12pm – 1am) and Sunday, June 9th (12pm – 11pm). We will have tons of amazing performers (announced in 2019) across our two main Festival stages: Park Stage and Plaza Stage. Check back for updates.
Where does the LA Pride Festival take place?
The LA Pride Festival takes place in West Hollywood Park, along San Vicente Boulevard (between Santa Monica Boulevard and Melrose Avenue), and in the Pacific Design Center Plaza.
The main entrance to the Festival (aka, the “North Gate”) is located at San Vicente and Santa Monica Boulevards. There is a smaller, second entrance (aka, the “South Gate”) located at San Vicente Boulevard and Melrose Avenue. We recommend entering through the “North Gate” to avoid long waits in line.
What are the Festival hours?
- Saturday, June 8th: 12pm – 1am
- Sunday, June 9th: 12pm – 11pm
Will there be community programming at the Festival?
In addition to the on-stage performances across the three Festival stages, the LA Pride Festival will host the Trans Galeria (formerly, Trans Station), Erotic City (Leather/S&M), and Sizzle (alcohol- and substance-free) activations again in 2018. There will also be a variety of local vendors, non-profit organizations, and companies exhibiting at the Festival as well. Be sure to check everything out!
The LA Pride experience is focused on creating a diverse array of events and programming that the entire LGBTQ+ community and our allies can enjoy. This year, in addition to the annual LA Pride Parade and Festival, we will host a series of events all week long (“Pride Week”). Check out our Events page or Facebook Events for more information.

Yes, Erotic City will make its return to the 2019 LA Pride Festival.

I don’t live in the U.S. I can’t buy my ticket online. What do I do?
Tickets for the 2019 LA Pride Festival will be available in early 2019.
We wish we could offer online ticket purchasing for international customers at this time, but there are some logistical challenges that just make it difficult. But no worries, you can still purchase a ticket in advance in two ways: 1) email the official ticketing provider of the LA Pride Festival, See Tickets at firstname.lastname@example.org; or 2) call See Tickets at +1 323 908 0607. They are available via phone Monday – Saturday from 8am – 7pm PST. Please do not contact the LA Pride office for ticket purchases. We’ll just refer you to See Tickets, as all ticketing transactions get processed through them.
Can I buy my ticket the day of the event?
Single or multi-day tickets can be purchased at the LA Pride Festival Box Office, subject to availability and capacity.
I ordered my tickets online, but have a few questions.

What is an RFID wristband?
The LA Pride Festival has joined the likes of other festivals around the country by using RFID wristband technology in place of paper or digital tickets. The wristband has encrypted technology that gets scanned whenever entering Festival grounds. As a part of this system, all Festival attendees must wear a wristband on their wrist – and leave it attached – for the days you’ve purchased to attend the Festival. Wristbands that have been removed over the course of the weekend – and consequently destroyed as a result of that action – will no longer be accepted as valid entry into the Festival, thus requiring you to purchase a new ticket.
When will I get my wristband?
If you purchased your tickets online by May 31, 2019, you will receive your wristbands the week of June 3, 2018.
For all international ticket purchases and online tickets purchased after May 31, 2019, your wristbands will be available for Will Call pick-up at the “North Gate” entrance at Santa Monica and San Vicente Boulevards. Please be sure to have a photo ID and the credit card you used to purchase your tickets on you; we must be able to verify your identity in order to provide your wristbands to you.
What if I have not received my wristband?
After purchasing your tickets online, you will receive an order confirmation from SeeTickets on behalf of LA Pride. If you did not receive a confirmation email, please reach out to SeeTickets for help: https://support.seetickets.us/hc/en-us.
I got my wristband! Now what?
YAY!! That means you’re going to the 2018 LA Pride Festival soon!
Treat your wristband like cash. Each wristband is good for entrance by one person only and is non-transferable. Once you have put on your wristband, DO NOT REMOVE it or attempt to loosen it! Improperly applied wristbands will delay your entrance to the Festival and destroyed wristbands (from attempted removal) will be considered invalid. We will not accept damaged or tampered wristbands as entry into the Festival. If your wristband is removed by Festival security for any reason, it WILL NOT be replaced. Thank you in advance for helping us keep the security lines moving smoothly – and for making the 2018 LA Pride experience a safe one for all!
I lost my wristband. What do I do?
Wristbands will not be replaced if lost, stolen, damaged or destroyed. You will need to purchase a new wristband online or at the LA Pride Festival Box Office.
