Australian breakthrough act and Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival veterans Jagwar Ma are among the headliners set to hit the Santa Monica Pier this summer to help celebrate the Twilight Concert Series’ 30th anniversary season, organizers announced Thursday.

The series, which boasts being the largest free concert series in Southern California, kicks off July 10 with Cults and James Supercave on the famed pier.

Other acts include Grammy Award-winning La Santa Cecilia, Malaysian singer-songwriter Yuna, Los Angeles indie pop band Cayucas and the soulful Charles Bradley.


The free concerts start at 7 p.m. and will be hosted every Thursday through Sept. 11.

Last year, the series kicked off with Surfer Blood and included acts like Hanni El Khatib and Jimmy Cliff. Other series fan favorites included surf band Best Coast, who attracted about 20,000 people to the pier and surrounding beach in 2012.
