Collaborative Arts LA, Brownies and Lemonade and Shifty Rythms, in conjunction with LA Weekly, Eventbrite, and Lagunitas are proud to announce the lineup for the Brokechella 2014 Arts & Music Festival and kicking off the Los Angeles music fest season. The one day extravaganza that celebrates the immense talent and diversity of LA music will feature 50+ acts over four stages, the best of Los Angeles street food, festival encompassing art installations, dirt cheap drinks, a photo booth, gift bags, boutique vendors, face painting, merchandise, and much more – all for less than a 1/4 tank of gas.
This year, Brokechella will host festival mainstay and LA Weekly top live bands finalist, electronic folk duo yOya and fellow returning acts “bi-polar-folk”-blues group Kera & the Lesbians, and Echo Park garage pop fan favorite LA Font. Alongside eight acts new to the cARTel stage, these Los Angeles must-hears represent a variety of the city’s most thriving musical movements. For 2014, they welcome a host of international acts via their brand-new World Initiative, including Swiss trash-pop iTunes chart topper ZIBBZ. The cARTel Stage will also host shoegaze pop/folk collective Hott MT, former opener for the Flaming Lips; electronic trio drawing from Chicago classic soul and experimental psychedelia Greenhorse; dark, dreamy female fronted rock band Dark Furs; ambitious surfer rock via Francisco The Man; glam-blues power pop rockers The Singles; harmony driven disco-synth dance group Vibes; and the rhythmic indie pop newcomers StaG.
This years festival wide aesthetic theme is Broke Kingdom, which will take form in a variety of prominent ways. Art Alley, consisting of seven Gallery artists hanging paintings, photography, and installations; graffiti tagged “Thrones” (discarded lawn or arm chairs) to be used as a photo op; a Sound Fort where the listener can put on headphones and experience an enhanced audio version of our Brokechella sound; an indoor wall permanently muraled with an Augmented Street Tag by a professional graffiti artist brought to life by an app on your phone; a lounge with a 60 minute film loop called the Not-So-Silent Movie Theater, created by 5 Second Films; an artist using the vibration from the subwoofer during every cARTel stage performance to create a one of kind Painting with Sound piece for each band; a Giggle Dome of multicolored light prisms, illuminated in an otherwise dark hallway, paired with joyful soundscaping to provide a temporary reprieve from an otherwise audacious fest; Interactive Print Making, where fest guests are invited to make and buy their own prints in collaboration with a visual artist; Projection Mapping on to a variety of balloons attached to a wall, and our Broke Castle, painted live throughout the festival.
