Created and produced by JJLA, OUTLOUD Music Festival was launched in 2020 as a virtual concert series, highlighting and elevating Queer artists and performers while many Pride celebrations were being canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In 2021, OUTLOUD Music Festival partnered with Pride Live’s Stonewall Day and Adam Lambert to deliver a three-day, in-person concert series in Los Angeles, marking the return of live events to the city after the pandemic shutdown. Performers included Sofi Tukker, VINCINT, Brooke Eden, Daya, Hayley Kiyoko, and more, plus an in-person appearance from Los Angeles’ Mayor Eric Garcetti. The event, which won a 2021 BizBash Event Experience Award for Best Cultural/Multicultural Event (Live Events & Experiences), was simultaneously streamed on Twitch, garnering 4.8 million views and providing the artists and queer charities highlighted throughout the weekend a unique and critical global platform.
JJLA remains committed to its nonprofit and community partners. As such, tickets will be available for those organizations whose members need assistance in purchasing tickets for Saturday and Sunday shows.
