LINK UP, founded by Andre Power, is more than just a popular event series. First debuting in 2021, as lock-down restrictions lifted, Link Up quickly shot to popularity. It was one of the first events in LA, around this time, to give DJ’s the opportunity to once again perform in-front of a real audience. The reason Link Up is primarily an outdoor day event is a direct reflection of the post COVID era and Andre’s desire to create a safe space, filled with light, energy and of course, music. Link Up’s DJ curation is very intentional in mixing talented up-and-comers with world renowned, established DJ’s.
Pitchfork Live will host a the three day pop-up with exclusive interviews, intimate live performances and DJ sets curated by Pitchfork’s favorite artists and influential music editors.
