This Sunday, U.R. Art Festival is returning to Santa Monica, CA for their first event of 2015. The event is nestled in the center of numerous industrial art galleries that make up Santa Monica’s Bergamont Station.

The ideal environment to immerse yourself in music and art while soaking up some sun (which the Ecoboom solar power panels will be doing as well to power the event).

U.R. Art was started by three friends mutual dream to create an outdoor day party oasis in the heart of a city they loved. A mini stress cleanse and energy refresher for attendees, allowing them to dance their troubles away to deep house and techno.

Those selected to perform were the perfect people to take on this task. Philipp Jung is known around the world by his stage name M.A.N.D.Y, Dance Spirit will be doing exactly what their name implies, John Wander’s brings years of event production background from Roam Music, and Rob Garza a founding member of another group, Thievery Corporation.

If you’ve been wondering what Garza’s been up to lately (besides putting together enchanting sustainable festivals) then check out his stunning, yet slightly disturbing (taking face melting quite literally) music video for Blue Agave Fields below.

In addition to hours of great music, beautiful people and priceless vibes U.R. Art is stepping up the experience with live modern and street artists curated by Juxtapoz Latin America, LA's best local fashion designers curated by Phylis Navidad (known for her fabulous work with A Club Called Rhonda), Yoga by Ursula Vari, and fun for the kids (this is an all ages event after all, and plus we’re all kids at heart).

And because if you’re like us and food is a huge motivation to do anything they are bring in local food trucks including: Soho TacoCoconut Man LA, Van Leeuwen Ice-Cream, and more.

You can snag tickets here and feel good about doing so because a portion of the proceeds are going to the non-profit ARCAmazon dedicated to conserving the Amazon.
