Backyard Busk is a grassroots eclectic event that hosts musicians, authors, poets, comedians and artists of all kinds. All performers remain a secret until the night of the event. The show is free but we suggest making a donation if you plan on attending. Proceeds from the event go to Education Through Music - Los Angeles. With each Backyard Busk event, we aim to provide at least one student with a year's worth of music classes.
Education Through Music-Los Angeles partners with inner-city schools with the mission to provide and promote music in disadvantaged schools as a part of the core curriculum for every child to enhance students’ academic achievement, creativity and overall development. We believe that students should never have to look far to seek out any sort of art class.
Backyard Busk use to take place in a backyard, hence the name. We have recently moved into an art gallery located in DTLA in hopes of growing the show and the audience. Staying true to our name we still put on the show in a backyard setting so don't expect theater seats when you arrive. The seats will be replaced with faux grass and the stage will be dressed as the original backyard this event took place in.
