Music Festival Coming to Arts District

DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES -Silver Lake’s loss is Downtown’s gain. Producers of the arts and music festival once known as the Silver Lake Jubilee are moving the event to the Arts District.

The renamed Jubilee Music and Arts Festival will take place June 7-8 on a property at 590 S. Santa Fe Ave. that contains a large lot and warehouses. The change of venue was first reported by the blog theeastsiderla.com.

Launched in 2010, the Jubilee was held on the streets of Silver Lake; it soon became hard to set up a stage and support facilities for dozens of bands, comedians and more, said Jack Martinez of the Los Angeles Arts and Athletics Alliance, which produces the event.

“It’s tough to set it up and tear it down on a public street,” he said “Being on private property we will have more time for that.” Ticket prices and the lineup for the Arts District show have yet to be announced, but Martinez said he expects to have more than two dozen bands and comedians as well as arts and craft elements.
