RECAP: Broccoli City Festival Los Angeles 2014

Recap: Broccoli City Festival Los Angeles 2014

How many times did Ma have to yell at you to eat your broccoli? She gave you the whole spiel about how it’s good for you, it’s good for your eyes, blah blah. What Ma didn’t tell you was that somewhere down the line, broccoli wasn’t just food for the body and the soul, but good for the Motha Earth; maybe not in her steamed version, but perhaps somehow via good music, outdoor yoga, and an encouraged usage of low-carbon transportation. This past Saturday, Los Angeles saw it’s very first Broccoli City Festival, a multicultural event focused on building awareness and motion around sustainability and eco-friendliness, all the while hosting some dope performances and art to boot. What’s even more impressive with the event is that the whole function was thrown without any corporate backing of any sort.  Hosted in downtown’s LA Mart, Broccoli City brought out some of LA’s steeziest to check out performances from a slew of music’s freshest, from the likes of Tiron & Ayomari, Black Cobain, Chuck Inglish, New York City sweetheart Vashtie, Dizzy Wright, BJ the Chicago Kid, topped off with a quality headlining act in R&B songstress JoJo. For its first west coast edition, the fellas behind Broccoli City pulled off a good one. Hit the jump and check out the photos we snapped of the performances at LA’s first annual BC Fest.
