The 25th annual JazzReggae festival will take place at UCLA Intramural Field, Westwood, California on May 29th and 30th, 2011.  

The UCLA Jazz/Reggae Festival started with a one day Jazz Festival 25 years ago this year. We came to celebrate this festival every year on Memorial Day weekend with great artists and a community uniting atmosphere. It has been produced annually by a team of 30 unpaid students, who do a stunning and professional job. They also are very eco-friendly having proper recycling features throughout the venue’s areas.

This year the festival has a major focus on art with interactive art installations, live art on a 360 degree canvas featuring renowned graffiti artists Man One and Teebs. Also, custom screen printed T-shirts will be available and a large outdoor gallery will be available for viewing and purchases. Of course, there will be a huge variety of food and crafts booths for the attendee’s pleasure.
