This Memorial Day Weekend promises to be a fun-filled one as musical performers such as Veruca Salt, John Doe, Chevy Metal, Young Dubliners and many more make their way to the Topanga Music Festival. Nestled in the Santa Monica Mountains, equidistant to PCH and Ventura Boulevard, the Festival is always a wild and joyous celebration as flower children from near and far unite in the name of both dance and hemp.
