The two-day, outdoor “Secret Project” festival comes to Chinatown in Los Angeles Oct. 13-14 to celebrate underground electronic music, food, and art.

Specifically surrounding Chinatown’s Naud Street, the festival will feature performances by Bonobo (DJ set), Carl Cox, Dixon b2b Âme, Trikk, Irish duo Bicep, and many others. DJs and live acts will begin at 2 p.m. and conclude their sets at 10 p.m each day. Secret Project will have two main stages in the industrial center of Chinatown and takeover venues throughout downtown Los Angeles to continue the good vibes with a variety of after-parties.

Presented by Factory 93, Secret Project will partner with local businesses like David Chang’s Majordõmo, Apotheke, and Club Called Rhonda to host VIP dining and beverage experiences. Festival goers will also be able to experience artwork and projects on neighboring murals created by local artists.

Tickets go on sale Aug. 24 at 12 p.m. PST.

After a Grammy nomination for his album Migration, Bonobo will perform alongside Bicep.  Bonobo recently sold 19,810 tickets over two shows at London’s revamped Alexandra Police, grossing $804,225 May 31 and June 1. 

They’ll be joined by Life and Death’s Tale of Us and DJ Tennis, who alongside Innervisions’ Dixon, Ame, and Trikk and Burning Man icons Pachanga Boys, will present their dramatic and melodic take on house music.

Guests are welcomed to purchase VIP tickets to dine at chef and Momofuku founder David Chang’s LA restaurant, Majordõmo. Additionally, pansexual, matriarchal host for club nights all around North America, A Club Called Rhonda, will maintain the dance party along with intricate cocktails at speakeasy and jazz bar, Apotheke. 

As culture and creativity embrace the streets and communities of Chinatown, Factory 93 decided it was time again to produce another event in the area. They exhibit a constant dedication to presenting innovative music and diversity, whether it’s on Los Angeles stages like Hollywood Palladium and Exchange LA, or on large-scale festival stages, such as EDC Las Vegas.
