LA Park Shifts Festivals

Hard SummerFYF and H2O fests in Los Angeles will have to look for new homes next year as the city shuts down the L.A. State Historic Park in 2014 for an $18 million renovation.

The park is expected to close in January for the makeover, California State Parks spokesman Sean Woods told the Los Angeles Downtown News

Plans call for a new welcome pavilion, promenade for a farmers market, an amphitheater, wetland areas and permanent restrooms.

The park has become a busy concert venue with Hard Summer, now owned by Live Nation, and FYF festivals attracting tens of thousands of fans annually.
