More than a dozen artists, including Claud, Junior Varsity, Bonavega, Asha Imuno, the Hellp, Kerwin Frost and Izzy Spears, will converge at LA River Studios on Saturday, Dec. 3, for the inaugural HERE For LA music and arts festival, a community-minded event that will devote a portion of its proceeds to three local charities.

The beneficiaries of the festival will be L.A. Works, ArtworxLA and Homeless Health Care Los Angeles.

Organized by Ethan Kring, 22, and Stella Blue, 21, HERE For LA will kick off at 9 a.m. with a series of workshops and discussions (RSVP). The music kicks off at 4 p.m. across three stages, with the event also offering food trucks and immersive activities.

Hear music from the artists on the festival’s Spotify playlist.
