Too poor (or too slow) to score a ticket in Indio? The fourth annual Brokechella Art & Music Festival in Downtown has you covered.

This year’s event, to be held Saturday, April 19, will see a bloc party of indie music acts, art installations, food trucks and vendors. Headliners include electronic folk duo yOya, folk blues band Kera & the Lesbians and garage pop outfit LA Font. Over 50 performers will play four stages throughout the festival. Acts were curated by cARTel: Collaborative Arts LA via auditions in February.

Last year’s event, held at a different venue, saw 2,000 attendees, according to Brokechella’s blog.

Tickets are $10 online and $20 at the festival, held at 590 Santa Fe Street, Downtown Los Angeles. The event is 21 and older.
