The City of Los Angeles is ready to dance. Jamie Jones’ Paradise In The Park is back on August 21 at Pershing Square. Joining the Welsh DJ and producer are Knee Deep in Sound label boss Hot Since 82 and Art Department. The lineup deepens with Hot Creations and Relief riser Detlef and Crosstown Rebel’s upstart Yulia Niko.
From what began as a summer residency at the legendary DC-10, Jamie Jones’ Paradise event concept has since grown into a globally renowned event series. 2020 saw Paradise usher in a new era, moving their Wednesday night party to Ibiza clubbing institution Amnesia. Poised as one of house music’s most visible players, Jamie Jones’ history is intertwined with Los Angeles. He connected with LA’s Culprit crew in the late 2000s and lived in the city for much of the last decade. In 2017, he debuted Paradise In The Park at Macarthur Park.
With so few opportunities to dance together over the past year, Angelenos will be eagerly awaiting to come together under LA skies in the heart of downtown on August 21. The timing of the city’s reopening couldn’t be any better as this sets the stage for Paradise’s first global event since 2019. With a soon-to-be-announced lineup of hot artists joining Jamie Jones in Pershing Square, this edition of Paradise in the Park will be one for the book.
Jamie Jones debuted the Paradise In The Park concert in Los Angeles in 2017. It sold out Macarthur Park before heading to Grand Park in 2019 for another sold-out event. 2017 was the start of Jones’ partnership with Future Primitive in LA, which is renowned for pioneering unique outdoor event spaces for underground dance music. These events are known for their cinematic and iconic nature that captures the best of what Los Angeles has to offer. Future Primitive has created events with Innervisions, Guy Gerber’s Rumors, DJ Tennis, Lee Burridge’s All Day I Dream and many more.
Pershing Square sits at the heart of LA’s urban core surrounded by downtown’s skyscrapers. It offers an impressive and unique backdrop for the creative teams from Paradise and Future Primitive to transform with dynamic lighting and bespoke production. This summer Paradise In The Park will offer up the delicious proposition of reclaiming one of LA’s central public spaces for dancing under open skies.
