May 14, 2010 by Lisa Newton

It’s hard to believe that summer is almost upon us. It seems like only yesterday that 2010 rang in the new year, but one of the signs summer is here is the new list of free summer concerts in Los Angeles, everyone enjoys, and this year is no different.

Last year, Travelin’ Local, just featured a list of concerts, but this year, we are going to make it a little easier to find what you’re looking for by creating a calendar. Not all of the venues have their 2010 schedules out yet, but for the ones that have done so, the Travelin’ Local Free 201 Summer Concert Series is ready.

As more venues finish their free summertime concert schedules, we’ll include that information and update the Free 2010 Summer Los Angeles calendar.

Where can you find this summer’s free LA Concerts?
