One of the reasons why we Love L.A. summers so darn much is the plethora of awesome food festivals that go down this time of year. One of said fests is the Los Angeles Food & Wine Festival, which is coming back this year from August 22-25.

This time around the organizers are moving its location to the "Heart of Art" on Grand Avenue. This star-studded lineup of chefs includes the likes of Thomas Keller, Giada De Laurentiis, Masaharu Morimoto, Grant Achatz, Duff Goldman, and Scott Conant, among others.

But it's not just the culinary elite that will be involved; there's also going to be some musical badassery in attendance. Ziggy Marley is teaming up with chef Ben Ford of Culver City's Ford's Filling Station highlighting the relationship and passion each have for using local and sustainable ingredients. There'll also be a live performance from DJ ?uestlove during the first night, and one from platinum recording artist Gavin DeGraw at the Grand Tasting on Saturday.
