About Crossroads Children's Programs

Children’s programs begin at 6:00,
last 30-40 minutes, take place
at the same location as the main concert,
and are free to children under 12
and their parents or other caregivers.
Seating is first come, first served.

Children must be accompanied by parents or other adults at all times.
We don’t have the staff or clearances to supervise unattended children.
Keeping this program free
depends on your support.

Las Cafeteras

Las Cafeteras
A uniquely Angeleno blend of punk, hip-hop, beat music, cumbia and rock
“I left not sure what I had just experienced. A concert? A square dance? A political rally? A community meeting? A ballet? A trip back to 1961 with Rosie and the Originals? A fiesta? All of the above? I also walked out asking two questions: Why doesn’t Las Cafeteras have a Grammy, and when do you play at the White House?” – Music Fridays
