"At LEAF, we believe life is a journey," wrote performing arts director Ehren Cruz in a release. "Every day holds an opportunity to discover something new that has the power to transform and uplift the way we see the world. This fall LEAF, we invite one and all to embark on a voyage across the globe to experience music that will make your spirit soar.

"From the shores of Kingston, Jamaica to the frozen tundra of Iqaluit, Nunavut, to the ancient forests of Estonia, to the streets of East L.A. and beyond — prepare to expand your horizons with a once-in-a-lifetime adventure," Cruz continued.
The two main festival headliners are Jamaican reggae/ska group Toots and the Maytals and Los Angeles rock band Los Lobos.
