Presented by SoLa I CAN and Live Nation, in an effort to train a new generation of Black and Brown industry professionals from South L.A., the lineup for When You Grow Up Fest was produced and curated by students that took part in the Live Nation NextGen paid apprenticeship. The program is a paid apprenticeship where 20 Black and Brown students (ages 15-21) explore various career pathways in the entertainment and music industries through technical training and mentorship from industry insiders.
The inaugural When You Grow Up Fest will take place Sunday, Aug. 14 from 11am to 7pm at the SoLa Beehive. The event will feature over 15 live performances, as well as art, food, and local artisans and vendors.
