Opening night of Los Angeles’ newest entertainment hub kicks off on July 11 with electronic rock duo Phantogram’s first LA show in three years.

“It’s been so exciting working on building this inaugural lineup, I could speak for hours on my appreciation of each artist but I think the lineup speaks for itself,” says Nick Barrie, The Bellwether’s Head Talent Buyer. “It’s going to be even more special when they finally take the stage in this incredible room.”

The excitement continues to build at The Bellwether with the announcement of even more incredible shows for 2023, including Carly Rae Jepsen, Isaiah Rashad, Princess – Maya Rudolph and Gretchen Lieberum’s Prince cover band, and Fool’s Gold 15th Anniversary Party with A-Trak + more TBA.
