Sunset Junction Festival: Bad Press Continues

New, 64 comments

First, LAist.com reveals that last weekend's event may indeed have been an official FREE EVENT. (The blog digs up an official document noting just that.) Yesterday, a reader sent in some thoughts to Curbed on the event, noting the once-happy festival has turned into a "strange spectacle of empty streets and thuggy security guards. And $20 for what's supposed to be a neighborhood togetherness event? Aside from the suspicious and defensive nature of the promoter's response to any request for accountability, the big issue remains: why can they charge at all? I'd been under the impression that because this is held on a public street, it's supposed to be open for all and any ticket prices are to be donation only. Time to break this thing open and get the real story --- or call it off." [LAist.com/Curbed Inbox]
