Watts Towers

Get your feet stomping at this annual duo of pan-African and jazz festivals. For more than three decades, Day of the Drum has taken over Watts Towers for an afternoon of music, dance and poetry. Last year's highlights included a Yoruba ground blessing ceremony, Balinese and Afro Cuban performances, and an appearance by LA poet laureate Luis Rodriguez. The long-running Jazz Festival kicks off the following day with an afternoon of jazz performances and tributes.
