Sunset Junction-Related Events And Parties That Are Still Happening This Weekend
Timothy NorrisThere may not be a Sunset Junction Music Festival this year, but there's still plenty to do at Sunset Junction.
With reporting from Lina Lecaro.
Wednesday morning, the Los Angeles Board of Public Works voted to deny permits for Sunset Junction Music Festival, effectively canceling the annual event just days before it was set to take over Silver Lake.
In another post, we've made a comprehensive list of the bands who have been rescheduled for other venues.
