Foothill Artists Crowd The Crestival

The Crest hosted local musicians and artists during the Crestival.

is a dive bar most famous for hosting JPL's Mars Curiosity Rover team the night of landing.  

Now, it's known for the artists who piled inside for a sweaty summer music and arts festival. 

People came to sip locally brewed craft beer and relax during the two-day event coined "The Crestival."

The Crest, formerly known as Whisperz, is under new management and is no longer the pool table and beer pong destination it once was. 

The comfortable, floral-themed booths, tall tables and beer on draft offer a place for creators to hang their art and enjoy live entertainment. 

"A different crowd is coming here now. It's open-minded, artistic, intelligent," said a bartender, who declined to publish his name. 

The Crest is located at 3645 Foothill Blvd., La Crescenta. Hours are 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. daily.

@James - thank you for uploading your awesome photos! I remember Cody from middle school! It's cool to see he's still making music.
