WHAT: Soft-glow lighting and curated music will transform the “park for everyone” into the premier date spot for lovers, friends, families and even four-legged buddies to celebrate Valentine’s Day on a budget. Angelenos can bring their own picnic dinner and enjoy a special evening at Grand Park’s trademark pink tables overlooking the park’s iconic Arthur J. Will Memorial fountain as they enjoy the sounds of Lovers Rock Reggae music. Rooted in the Reggae sounds of the 1970s and in Caribbean nightclubs in London, Lovers Rock music is noted for its romantic sound and content. Park furniture is available on a first come, first-served basis.

A mainstay on the beat scene, DJ Linafornia will serve as the evening’s selector to help get Angelenos in the mood with sweets and treats available for purchase from various food trucks, including Cerda Vega serving their specialty, Birria de Res. Couples can capture their romantic moments while friends snap their groupfies with a complimentary photo booth. Guests and their pets are encouraged to take a moonlit walk through the park’s Olive Court amidst the historic views of Los Angeles City Hall surrounded by mood lighting and a Lovers Rock playlist featuring past and present artists, including Gregory Isaacs, Beres Hammond, Barrington Levy, Chronixx, Aaliyah, Erykah Badu, Wayne Wonder and The Internet.

WHO: Linafornia, a producer and DJ from Leimert Park, Los Angeles, formed her sound in the ether of warm, sunburst skylines and the cool whoof of speakers in some of L.A.’s most harrowed underground haunts. Ever since staking her claim on the scene with YUNG (Dome of Doom) in 2016, she has been a mainstay of the beat scene.
