LA Pride June 9-10
One of the biggest pride events in the US, LA Pride attracts as many as a half of a million people during its two-day festival at West Hollywood Park, including its signature Sunday parade. The atmosphere is good-natured and raucous; local color is provided by divas, drag queens and DJs.

E3 June 12-13
Unlike PAX or locally-based IndieCade, E3 was never really meant for gamers. After all, this video game mecca that glues salivating gamers around the world to their computers was technically an industry-only event. But lucky for you, the video game convention is offering a limited number of consumer passes. Even if you don’t manage to procure a badge, there are enough party tents, promo trucks and swag bags hanging around Figueroa to make a visit worthwhile—and once you’ve seen the gridlocked crowds and endless lines of the sensory overload inside, that might just be the best way to enjoy E3.

Arroyo Seco Weekend 2018 June 23-24
Arroyo Seco Weekend is a music festival that takes place at Rose Bowl Stadium.

Vans Warped Tour June 24
The tour travels across the United States, Canada, Europe and Australia with more locations hitting the schedule every year. The focus is on major music events combined with skateboarding and other alternative sports competitions, and venues are often atypical, ranging from fairgrounds to open fields to parking lots.
