Quotes from the press:

"There's Make Music Pasadena, an orgy of 300 shows throughout the city at $0, the admission price can't be beat. And with Kinky, the Raveonettes, Autolux, Dengue Fever, and the Little Ones playing, neither can the lineup."

~ Los Angeles Times

"With so many free shows in so few hours, Make Music Pasadena's bill is as impressive as it is overwhelming. In addition to local heroes Autolux, the Little Ones, and the festival's six stages feature marquee international talents like Mexico's Nortec Collective, French girl-group the Plastiscines, and top-billing Danish duo the Raveonettes."

~ Flavorpill.com

"A smart lineup of amazing and intelligently tuneful musicians."

~ LA Weekly

"The diverse festival exemplifies what Southern California is all about."

~ NME

"What's impressive about the annual Make Music Pasadena is how many constituencies the festival is serving over one day. With more than 50 performances scattered around 17 venues, the free, all-ages shows feature artists with impressive resumés (veteran rocker JD Souther, jazz legend Barbara Morrison and Latin Grammy-nominated chanteuse Natalia Lafourcade); something for young pop masses (Matt & Kim, the Antlers); and a smattering of SoCal's most promising up-and-comers (Warpaint, Voxhaul Broadcast, Moses Campbell and the Growlers)."

~ LA Weekly

"Music festivals nationwide are now in full bloom, and the Make Music Pasadena Festival was pulling out all its cards. With a wide variety of (did I mention free?) musical talent in many stages across town."

~ The Music FM
