The event will feature a diverse mix of musical genres throughout the day. Artists will include: virtuosic Latin guitar duets with Carbe and Durand, space reggae with the Lowtops, The Eric Turner Band bringing electric blues, world-renown musical whistling with The Whistling Diva, plus an assortment of Alternative Rock, R&B, Indie, and more. Admission is free.
Festival-goers will love the wide selection of local craft beers from all four Monrovia craft brewers: Hop Secret, Over Town, Wingwalker, and Pacific Plate, as well as 38 Degrees Ale House and Congregation Ale. The craft beer garden also offers a VIP lounge, where you can enjoy preferred seating, an included beer, a commemorative cup, and beer service. VIP tickets are available on MonroviaMusicFest.com - $23 online or $25 at the door.
Monrovia Music Fest also features a curated artisan market, fun activities for the whole family, plus interactive areas with giant bubbles, KROQ, and KTLA. A tasty variety of food trucks are providing delicious sustenance from: Baby's Badass Burgers, Cousins Maine Lobster, Middle Feast (Food Truck Wars winner), LA Donut, and Dulce Europa Shaved Ice. The Metro Gold Line Monrovia Station on Myrtle Ave brings attendees just a mile down the street from the fun at Library Park.
Monrovia Music Fest is produced by two entrepreneurs from Monrovia: Carole Anne Kaufman, a two-time world champion musical whistler known as “The Whistling Diva,” and Clara Mayer, who survived and is thriving after two massive strokes just two years ago. “We work straight from the heart, our whole objective is to bring communities together through music and art,” said Mayer.
What started as a small community fest in 2014 has grown to become one of the largest free music and art festivals in the San Gabriel Valley, drawing a crowd from all over Los Angeles County. Throughout the years, Monrovia Music Fest has championed regional indie talent, featured a Grammy Award winner and international musicians, promoted local businesses, and partnered with non-profit organizations such as Homeboy Industries and the Boys and Girls Club. This year the Fest has partnered with the Renal Support Network, a nonprofit which provides services for those with kidney disease.
The producers, Studio C Productions, have been awarded by Congresswoman Grace Napolitano, the State Senate, and the Chamber of Commerce for their community contributions. The festival is possible thanks to the support of their Elite Sponsors: The Wizard of Bras, and Cacique, the leading brand of Mexican-style cheeses in the United States, both headquartered in Monrovia, CA.
