Posted by The Bay Area Crew, August 23, 2015 05:00pm | Post a Comment

On September 26th and 27th, Oakland's Middle Harbor Shoreline Park will be transformed into a mecca of Bay Area Vibez, Oaklandmusic, art, and food by the inaugural Bay Area Vibez Festival, an urban lifestyle event that celebrates diversity through live music and the arts. Supporting regional youth and music programs, Bay Area Vibez is endorsing HipHopSavesLives.org (HHSL) as the festival's charity partner. HHSL works in conjunction with Sankofa.org (a non-profit founded by Harry Belafonte) to better spread social justice, through youth and music, with a plan to bring portable music studios to community centers in both San Francisco and Oakland.

With over 25 bands and DJs on multiple stages, we know this is just the beginning for this ambitious festival. On Saturday, September 26, Aloe Blacc performs with Sankofa Sound (a collection of musicians that align themselves with a-list artists who gather through Sankofa.org), along with the festival headliners, multiple Grammy winners Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley and Stephen “Ragga” Marley. Also performing Saturday are Morgan Heritage, The Grouch & Eligh, Tarrus Riley, Fishbone, Cut Chemist, Mod Sun, Queen Omega, I-Live, Skip Marley, Forrest Day, I-Wayne, and Black Am-I.

Silver Lake Jubilee 2012 Tickets Available at Amoeba Hollywood

Posted by Amoebite, March 13, 2012 05:27pm | Post a Comment

Silver Lake JubileeThis year's Silver Lake Jubilee in Los Angeles is on Memorial Day weekend May 26 and 27. The two day neighborhood festival may be its biggest yet with more than 35 bands, 40 comedians and performers, food trucks, craft vendors, and beer/wine for the 21-and-overs.

You can purchase two-day passes to the Jubilee at Amoeba Hollywood for $37 (this includes a $2 facility fee). 

One of the cool things about the festival, aside from all the great bands, is its focus on environmental sustainability. You are very much encouraged to bring your own container and pour water for FREE from the fountains provided on site (that's a lovely change from other festivals that charge ridiculous amounts of money for very small bottles of water). Vendors use compostable food containers, and recycling and composting happens during the festival. Big no-nos inside the Jubilee include single-use plastic bags, Styrofoam, balloons, or other non-recyclable containers. 

When: Memorial Day Weekend, May 26 & 27

  • 12 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 26
  • 12 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. on Sunday, May 27

Where: Santa Monica Blvd., with entrances from Sunset Blvd. and Commonwealth

Here is the lineup (so far):
