Here’s my rundown of last year’s event, which celebrated the culture of Mexico’s indigenous Huichol people, visited by 40,000 people and featured musicals artists Lila Downs, Xavier Quijas Yxayotl, Huichol Musical, and others.
Viva Pomona, the little festival on the border of Los Angeles and the Inland Empire, returned for its fifth edition on July 16th and July 17th. Nearly 50 artists swooped in to the area surrounding the Glasshouse on 2nd/Thomas for a weekend of music and art.
Below are a few photos from the event. The full album, as always, is on my Flickr account.
