A music fest for the rest of us: Brokechella returns with its 3rd edition in the heart of downtown Los Angeles to once again serve all of those who don’t have the dough for a weekend in the desert. Don’t miss what the LA Times recognized as the community experience that skips “the mortal terror of your credit card statement [at other festivals]” and “revels in staying at home.” Doubling in size year to year, Brokechella 2013 is sure to yet again swarm with a giant crowd, the best of acts from LA and beyond, mouth-watering eats, and surprises galore!
Last year’s Main Stage featured Infantree, LA Font, Rumspringa, Big Moves, and yOya, among others. Inside, bands played all day to packed crowds, while DJs led an army of dance fiends at the Jarritos stage outside. Come be a part of the oh-so-cheap magic!
Since cARTel was in its infancy, one of its most regular and beloved events was known as Community Pool. Bands, comedians, and variety acts would come together to share their talents with fellow Los Angeles artists. The event grew more and more popular over the years, consistently outgrowing its venue. What started at a coffee-house in Venice soon moved to a black box theater in Westwood, then to a multi-story club Downtown that could hold two stages, and finally to a giant warehouse space in Downtown LA.
So how did it become Brokechella? In 2011 when planning their Spring Community Pool, they realized it was falling on the same weekend as Coachella. Not a group to shy away from a challenge, they decided to embrace it, and welcomed 400 people into the very first Brokechella held at the Airliner downtown. Food trucks, face painting, fantastic art, and all for a measly $5 price tag. For a while, they continued the Broke Concert Series at the Airliner, with BrokeSmash in the summer and BrokeBeast around Halloween, then decided to focus solely on Brokechella and making it *the* place to be in Los Angeles during Coachella’s second weekend.
