The Jubilee Music and Arts Festival, also referred to as the Silverlake Jubilee, is everything Sunset Junction was meant to be. It’s a small, community-based fest with local and indie national bands, light security and a friendly vibe. Bands on the schedule include The Dharma Bums, Catwalk, Summer Twins, Abe Vigoda and Chasing Kings. There is also a heavy comedy lineup, something unique for festivals. Another exciting addition is the literary lineup, including the good folks from 826LA. Food is provided by a fleet of food trucks. We recommend the Dosa Truck and Hungry Nomad. There will be lots of shopping in rows of merchant’s booths.
It is a bottle-free Zero Waste event. The street closure will take place on Santa Monica Blvd beginning at the intersection of Sunset Blvd continuing southwest on Santa Monica Blvd to Commonwealth St. There is limited street parking, so carpooling, taxis, and drop-off as well as public transportation is encouraged. There is a free block party in conjuction with the Jubilee. Tickets to the Jubilee itself are $20 for one day, $35 for a 2-day pass. Buy tickets. Discount tickets available from Goldstar.
