The New Los Angeles Folk Festival is a daylong event on August 7th, bringing musicians, artists, and fans together for a day of new and old folk music

The New Los Angeles Folk Festival celebrates the emergence of new L.A. folk in all its shapes and contrasts. It's the people’s music. It's traditional and experimental, acoustic and electronic, throwbacks and progressive ideas.

Proceeds from the festival will go towards the Environmental Defense Fund's Gulf cleanup efforts.

Our daylong event takes place on August 7th at Historical Monument 157 in Lincoln Heights, Los Angeles, one of L.A.'s most unique and eclectic venues. Couches, surrounded by trailers with twinkling holiday lights behind an old mansion. The neighbor's wall provides the perfect screen for 50 foot projections behind the stage.

The lineup includes some of Los Angeles' finest folk performers:

Linda Perhacs
Mia Doi Todd
Les Shelleys
Ariana Delawari
LA Ladies Choir
He’s My Brother, She’s My Sister
Olentangy John
Henry Wolfe
Eagle Winged Palace
Robert James
Sandra Sarra
+ MORE to be announced soon

Your donations will go towards putting on the festival and will help us promote and raise awareness for the EDF's work. The more donations we can collect for the festival, the more money we can give to the Gulf coast cleanup!

Any donation of more than $15 will get you into the August 7th Folk Festival at HM157!
