There are to music festivals today: one large in scale, one large in heart. The Greek Theatre hosts the LA Latin Jazz Festival tonight as the Highland Park Music Festival goes throughout the day starting after 1:00 p.m. at Zeppelin Music. Another festival is going on right now and while it does have music, it's a bit more eco-focused.
