This weekend we went to the Music Tastes Good Festival in Long Beach, California. It was all of the things we loved: a food fest, a music fest, a great display of diversity and activism as well as a good time. Fans got to see a slew of amazing bands, see art from local contemporary artists, register to vote, sign up for volunteer opportunities, learn new skills from a variety of chefs and make new friends.
Here are some of the highlights from this weekend…
Copeland Holt is an artist and musician who set up shop all over the fest this weekend. He could be seen painting portraits of each performer and talking with fans about his process as well as his passions. You can learn more about him: here.
