LOS ANGELES, CA (May 13, 2014) —KCRW returns to Century Park in Century City this summer for FREE all-ages outdoor concerts inspired by the Annenberg Space for Photography’s newest exhibit, Country: Portraits of an American Sound.

Talent will be announced soon.
In the meantime, mark your calendars for July 26 and August 2.
RSVP will be required. Details to follow once talent is announced. Find out more here.
The Photography Space will stay open late on these evenings so that the public may enjoy both the concerts and the exhibit, which features images of the pioneers, poets and icons of country music.
To celebrate its 25th anniversary, the Annenberg Foundation has planned community events throughout 2014, including Country in the City.
KCRW and the Annenberg Foundation first united in 2012 for a string of hugely successful summer music events staged in the outdoor park adjacent to the Photography Space in 2012. The packed shows proved the outdoor park was a unique and exciting weekend destination for live music and we’re thrilled to bring back more of our favorite artists for another round!
View photos from the shows in 2012 here to see what you can look forward to.
