Their plea for respectful patron-ship echoed loudly in the festival community and came to fruition through careful planning and preparation. With a deep passion for Environmentalism and sustainable living, the festival organizers provided a space that allowed for transformative experiences in the realms of art, music, and community. Brain stimulation ran rampant throughout the different activities scheduled throughout the five days of “Symbi,” as it came to be called. Continue Reading

Derby Days has been known for nearly a decade as a festive day of unique, top-notch performances, which then donates all proceeds to the fantastic organization that is the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles. This year, Christian Karlsson of Miike Snow is playing, along with a live set by The Knocks, and USC’s own Dr. Fresch. I’m of course skeptical of any DJ set, particularly when performed by an artist known for a band and not a DJ act, but a Miike Snow DJ set is a clear exception. I highly recommend catching this elusive performance whenever possible. And, to make your life a little easier, we’ve got 4 pairs of tickets to give away. Enter here:
