A new venue will be introduced to Inglewood, California later this summer and it’s none other than the YouTube Theater. The YouTube Theater is an addition to the newly established Hollywood Park, which is a mixed-use venue. The new theatre will be a 6,000 seat performance space, which will host a number of live events, including concerts, YouTube creator events, awards ceremonies, esports competitions, comedy shows, and much more.
Formerly the Hollywood Racetrack and near the SoFi Stadium–home of the Chargers, Rams, and American Airlines Plaza, Hollywood Park also includes 3,000 apartments, a hotel, and a retail area. The YouTube Theater is expected to open this summer and has already booked big names throughout 2022. Ranging from Pitbull to Iggy Azalea, TLC, Bone-Thugs-N-Harmony, and more. YouTube Theater and Hollywood Park launched their own website, youtubetheater.com, which includes more information about the artists set out to perform throughout 2021-2022. Hollywood Park will be developed by Rams owner, Stan Kroenke. The three-story venue, totaling to 227,000 square feet will include a 6,100-square-foot stage and a 3,500-square-foot private club. Featuring luxury amenities, advanced technology, and a number of other advantages, the venue will surely not disappoint guests and passersby.
The video-sharing website, owned by Google, established 10-year naming rights; however, financial details regarding the agreement have not been disclosed. It is expected that the opening of YouTube Theater will create great brand awareness, especially during a time when other social media platforms, like TikTok, have gained major traction for video-sharing.
The theatre will feature a large video YouTube play button, which also transforms into a huge video screen. This video screen will feature content by YouTube’s creators and artists or guests will be able to mirror themselves through the interactive video screen. Hollywood Park established a multi-year partnership with the world’s leading entertainment company as an events promoter and venue operator, Live Nation.
Combining state-of-the-art technology, including extravagant guest amenities, and much more, the venue will feature stunning architecture. The venue will feature a two-story chandelier, created by architecture firm Kaynemaile. The Los Angeles community is certainly in for a treat, as the YouTube Theater is the perfect introduction to the reopening of venues.
