Framework To Bring Duke Dumont, Nora En Pure, Hot Since 82, And More To LA This Summer

Framework, one of the world’s leading independent purveyors of underground music experiences, will bring a tour-de-force of house and techno to Los Angeles this summer. The LA-based event production will continue showcasing expertly-curated lineups at various locations across the city, hosting headlining performances from celebrated selectors like Duke DumontNora En PureHot Since 82, Francis Mercier, and more.

Framework’s summer schedule kicked off last weekend with Framework Presents Solomun, which saw the underground kingpin, Solomun, perform a genre-spanning, six-hour set in Exposition Park. Framework backdropped the marathon performance with one of their most elaborate stage designs yet: a massive, custom-built replica power plant replete with detailed projection mapping, pyro, and Tesla coils shooting out lightning bolts. 

Francis Mercier – 6/29

Later this month, Framework will bring Haitian house music DJ/producer Francis Mercier to LA’s Chinatown district for a special set at Gin Ling Way. Taking place on Saturday, June 29, Framework Presents Francis Mercier represents the next chapter in a close-knit relationship between Framework and the highly touted afro-house DJ.
