There may not be two communities more iconic to Southern California than skateboarding and the music scene that goes along with it.
For the past six decades, skating has been tied to LA above and beyond any other city, and it’s helped to support tight-knit music scenes for everything from hardcore to punk rock to trap music from the same locations.

“LA SKATE + MUSIC” is an extension of that event and encapsulates the symbiotic relationship between skate culture and music.
