Now in its sixth year, the Love Street Festival honored The Doors on the 50th Anniversary of the release of their Number One song “Love Street.” A dedication ceremony and special performances took place on Sunday, July 22nd 2018 at 2100 Laurel Canyon Blvd, above and below the Canyon Country Store. The event was a fundraiser to preserve Laurel Canyon’s open space and wildlife corridor.
Artists that helped define the spirit of Laurel Canyon and place it on the map as a hotbed of cultural influence appeared throughout the day. Confirmed appearances included Robby Krieger and John Densmore of The Doors; The Mamas & The Papas’ Michelle Phillips; Micky Dolenz of The Monkees; Love co-founder Jonny Echols; Wilson Phillips; Bijou Phillips; Chris Stills; local musicians influenced by the sounds of Laurel Canyon.
Love Street Festival cofounders Greg Cipes (Teen Titan’s Beast Boy) and Chef Sandy Gendel (Pace) first set out to celebrate Laurel Canyon’s spirit and protect and preserve the Canyon, its cultural history and its way of life when they launched their inaugural festival. Proceeds from this year’s 6th anniversary festival will benefit We Are Laurel Canyon, a non profit 501(c)(3) organization for the purchase of land at risk of development on Laurel Canyon Blvd.
