Los Angeles, CA -- Indie record label Coconut Spaceship and Niantic Media are presenting JUNE GLOOM indie music festival on June 25, 2022 at Oracle Tavern in Chinatown, Los Angeles from 6:00pm to 2:00am. The event will feature 15 live music acts on 2 stages, a DJ, art vendors and visuals by MONOVISION. A selection of delicious beers, craft ciders and wine will be available from Oracle Tavern and food will be available from Say It Ain't So.
JUNE GLOOM is the third indie music festival of a seasonal concert series presented by Coconut Spaceship and Niantic Media. Showcasing LA’s premiere indie underground talent at a unique downtown location, the "spaceship" serves as a vehicle to support local artists through creative live experiences that unite the community through immersive music and art. Their inaugural festival LUNAR BLOOM debuted last Fall and the follow-up TOUCH DOWN occurred last Spring. Each drew 300+ guests with coverage by local media outlets including Reckless Magazine, KCSN 88.5FM, LA Music Scene, Notes from Vivace, and Blurred Culture Magazine who wrote, “Coconut Spaceship Stokes the Independent Fire with Lunar Bloom Festival.”
JUNE GLOOM festival continues Coconut Spaceship’s mission of supporting indie artists and creating an inclusive lineup with 50%+ acts including at least one woman or non-binary artist in their lineups. A huge discrepancy between genders still exists widely among music festival billing, especially with headlining artists, and Coconut Spaceship’s goal is to solve that problem.
In honor of PRIDE month, raffle tickets will be sold with 100% proceeds to be donated to TRUE COLORS UNITED, an organization backed by Cyndi Lauper that implements innovative solutions to youth homelessness that focus on the unique experiences of LGBTQ young people. One lucky winner will get a pair of Eargasm Earplugs’ stylish new High Fidelity earplugs, CLICKS, plus a Coconut Spaceship t-shirt.
The festival will showcase 15 live music acts spanning indie rock, synth pop, shoegaze, and punk. Pitchfork and LA Weekly featured rock fortress Taleen Kali will be headlining the outdoor GLOOM stage. Other local artists include up-and-coming synth-pop duo System Exclusive of Castleface Records (Thee Oh Sees, Ty Segall, King Gizzard) and psych rock trio MoonFuzz who have been making waves in the LA indie music scene.
Discounted pre-sale tickets are available on Eventbrite through June 24th ($25 GA / $35 VIP) and full-price tickets will be available at the door on June 25th ($30 GA / $40 VIP). VIP tickets include access to the VIP + Artist Only *CHEER UP LANAI* located near the outdoor GLOOM stage, featuring water from Liquid Death and complimentary foam earplugs from Eargasm Earplugs.
