The July 4th is a much loved and celebrated historical day for the United States. With the Continental Congress securing our nation’s freedom from Great Britain by creating the Declaration of Independence in 1776, Americans have been celebrating this glorious achievement for centuries. From multi million dollar firework presentations to patriotic festivals to red, white and blue cocktails to backyard BBQs, this year will be even better than the last. And if you live in Los Angeles, outdoor concerts will be on the agenda. Whether you’re looking for some rock n roll, classical or a musical mashup to enjoy with your festivities, these five are your best bet for a spectacular good time.
