“What you have is three to four generations – maybe five generations of people, counting Kidsapalooza -that are all going to a place in peace,  to experience music and learn to like and understand and love each other,” says festival organizer and Janes Addiction frontman Perry Farrell. “And this is one place where I can say the generation gap doesn’t exist.”
