Free Concerts in Public Sites Program

Funded by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, the Arts Commission administers the sponsorship of free concerts at community venues throughout Los Angeles County to provide access to quality music programming representing the diversity of County residents.

2016 applications to the Free Concerts in Public Sites Program are now closed.

For those interested in applying next year, eligibility requirements and application guidelines can be found here.

Each of the Supervisor Board Offices provides funds to cover musician’s fees for approved concerts in their district at rates comparable to the American Federation of Musician’s pay scale for free concerts. The Arts Commission coordinates payments to musicians while Free Concert Presenters are responsible for communicating all information to the Arts Commission and musicians, coordinating all necessary production logistics, marketing the event and effectively drawing the audience size as proposed in the application.

Click on the district tab on the right to see the list of 2015 concerts that took place in your area.
