The free music will continue at an after- show following the festival at Danny’s Venice from8pmto1am.

The performers in the full day of arts, music, and dance entertainment comprise a multi-genre array of seasoned and talented performers.

Venice Beach Music Fest 10 is thrilled to wel- come violin virtuoso Lili Haydn, seasoned rock and roller guitarist Greg Douglass of the Greg Douglass Band (with Steve Miller Band, he wrote the number one hit “Jungle Love”), local punk/ska heroes Meet Me at the Pub, experimen- tal band Spiel (a collaboration of musicians from Venice bands Sugar Bitch, Golden Buddha, and The Aliens), reggae band Jah Faith and the Hashishans, psychedelic funksters Jojo Stella, a special literary reading by Ann Cohen, and dance performances by Ya Harissa Bellydance Theatre and Samba Da Mudanca (Samba for Change).

This year’s lineup also includes a perform- ance by the ArtQueen ensemble of Sweden, which brings the “Go Wild N’ Crazy” art/fashion stage show, featuring the music of Black Dia- mond.

The festival opens with a parade down Ocean Front Walk (arriving at the festival site at 11 am).

Venice Beach Music Fest 10 is proud to sup- port the arts by hosting an art show that is free for selected independent artists.

This year’s lineup of visual artists showing their works include both local and internationally recognized artists Ra Ra Superstar, Art by Sky,

David Art Lawell, Elza Queen, Audrey McNa- mara, and Ann Cohen. Local author Carlos Allende will be signing copies of his newly released book, Love, or The Witches of Wind- ward Circle (set in Venice in the early 20th cen- tury).

Other special features of this year’s celebra- tion include Sambazon’s mobile café (offering açai bowls, Amazon superfood juices, and smoothies for purchase), Humboldt county soil producer Royal Gold, Mystic Rainbow tie dyes, and local performance artist (and fun-bringer!) Eclectic Hoops.

Producer Milton Rosenberg, in his 10th year of free festival production in the community, notes that this year’s Venice Beach Music Fest cel- ebration is a special one. “I couldn’t be prouder of the world-class level of talent we are able to offer the people of Venice, right here in our backyard,” Rosenberg said. “This festival was inspired by the original intent of Abbot Kinney: for Venice as a place to celebrate music, art, dance, and life, right here at the Pacific Ocean. Venice Beach Music Fest celebrates the creative spirit in all of us.”

The free Venice Beach Music Fest 10 is made possible by generous donations from these local and national sponsors that continue to prove their dedication to arts preservation in our community: Venice Beach Suites & Hotel, Sambazon, Earri- gation Mobile Recording Studios, Venice Board- walk Association, The Sidewalk Café, Danny’s Venice, Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps, Jody Maroni’s Sausage Kingdom, Fresh Brothers, Vol- cano Tea House (Los Angeles), Whole Foods Market Venice, Maui and Sons Venice Beach, Royal Gold Potting Soil, Venice Breeze Suites, Zelda’s Corner, Venice Paparazzi, Animal House, Free Venice Beachhead, and Meridian Database.
