What Is VIVA! Music Festival For?
The VIVA! Music Festival was launched a decade ago by a young Latinx youngster, Rene Contreras in 2012. And since then it has been the biggest and best fest. This kid wanted to get resources to his hometown in South California with the help of backyard shows and live shows at local spots. As per a bulletin, “Viva! goes beyond just a music festival, it has a strong mission of building community and representation, which has led to its cult following that started in L.A. and has since gone global.” This event is done to celebrate the individuals from underserved communities starting from its attendees to the band performing.
Additionally, it stated, “the fest celebrates those often overshadowed immigrants, the youth of color, the undeserved, the working class in the suburbs, various marginalized communities and artists that have long been pushed out of the larger anglo music arena.”
