Cornfield Music Festival Raises Social Awareness

Thousands united through the love of music at the Cornfield park in Chinatown Saturday for the We the People festival . The people-empowering music festival that hijacked the Los Angeles State Historic Park featured an eclectic lineup of more than two dozen performers including Les Claypool of Primus, Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine, RZA of the Wu Tang Clan and Suicidal Tendencies.

Judging by the reaction of the main stage crowd when original dancehall master, Barrington Levy, took the stage one hour later than scheduled, music breaks all boundaries.

Councilmember Ed Reyes’ office would like to thank and congratulate the City's Department of Recreation and Parks, the Los Angeles Police Department, California State Parks, We The People sponsors and all who attended the festival. We made it a success!
