Blacklisted: A Music and Arts Festival in Los Angeles With Soul

Blacklisted Music and Arts Festival 2017 is an eclectic event where artists and musicians who would rather be blacklisted than remain silent in the face of injustice come together.

Over 20 bands will be participating in the event, as well as a DJ tent, free workshops, documentaries, inspirational talkers, world-class chefs, art and installations, a silent disco, a candlelight vigil, and much more.

This unique festival that stands up against injustice and censorship is set to take place on July 29 at the Los Angeles State Historic Park.
