The Fold in HiFi is a concert and events planning company based out of the Bootleg Theater in Los Angeles. Working with both emergent and established artists, whether local, national, or international, we take pride in consistently providing a platform with which to find, develop, and showcase new music and performance. We can also host a mean party. "It's finger placed firmly on the pulse of the underground music scene, the people at the Fold in HiFi have excellent taste in music, with some of the most interesting and talked-about bands coming through... The stages are intimate, but the sound rivals any top-tier venues in Los Angeles." - LAist (Best Venues in LA)
Presenting fiercely original music and events since April 17, 1997
"The Fold continually books bands on the brink, jolting LA's burgeoning underground music scene to new levels of visibility."- Flavorpill LA
