The Agenda Festival brings a twist on the modern-day music festival.

The second annual Agenda Festival returned to the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center on June 30th. This unique festival experience includes pop-up shops from hundreds of streetwear and lifestyle brands. Agenda Festival not only offers live musical performances, but also hosts panel discussions and meet & greets.

This one-day festival event was preceded by two days of the Agenda Show, a trade show open only to industry executives and influencers. The line up included a diverse array of artists such as Denzel Curry, FIDLAR, Billie Eilish, and Lil Yachty. Self-described as America’s favorite boyband, first-time festival headliners Brockhampton made their live performance return after a brief hiatus–following ex-member Ameer Vann’s dismissal.

With over 15,000 attendees, the 2018 Agenda Festival revealed the emerging future of curated music festivals, a celebration music, fashion, and culture.
