Local-centric Silver Lake Jubilee unveils lineup

The excitable punk rock of Fidlar, the hip-hop inspired soul of Aloe Blacc and the tap-dancing pop of He's My Brother She's My Sister will be on display at the 2012 edition of the now-annual Silver Lake Jubilee. Set for Memorial Day weekend, the two-day event promises more than 35 bands, including the Latin dance rock of Kinky and the electro-pop of Princeton. 

Now in its third year, the May 26-27 Silver Lake Jubilee will be all grown up in 2012, featuring a hike in ticket price from $5 to $20 per day (a weekend pass is $35). After the collapse last year of the Sunset Junction street fest, the Jubilee will be assuming the role of the neighborhood's premier music-focused street fair.

In an attempt to avoid any controversy about the jump in ticket price, the Jubilee, presented by nonprofit Los Angeles Arts & Athletics Alliance, has posted a breakdown of the fees on its website. The event promises to invest $10 in community programs, while revealing that $4 goes to administration costs and another $4 will cover city fees and insurance. The remaining $2 is divided between marketing costs and a "re-investment fund." 

Still to be revealed are this year's showcases for comedians and book readings, as well as the list of food trucks and vendors. New for 2012 is what is described as a "free community block party," although details about that have also not yet been revealed.
