Show starts 11am-7pm at the historical Anthony C. Beilenson Park (aka: “Balboa Park”) located at 6300 Balboa Blvd in Encino, California.

Uniting R&B and Neo-Soul fans throughout Los Angeles and Ventura counties, the festival will be staged on the pavilion side of the park where guests can relax and take in the natural beauty of this venue, all while enjoying live entertainment, eclectic culinary fare, and shopping in the “Vendor Village.”

Balboa Music Festival LLC partners Steve Gable, Leslie Small, and Sean Collinson have collaborated with Willie McGinist, and Marques Colston to provide the community with a spectacular day of entertainment that will be indelibly etched into their souls. The partners of Balboa Music Festival held a summer contest through online video submissions and voting, to discover the hottest new artists in Southern California to be showcased at the festival.  Andrea Jones and Alphy Nics were voted as the top two artists of the competition. Sharing the stage with R&B legends, their upcoming festival performance will serve as unforgettable, music milestones in their young careers.

A portion of the proceeds from this event will be donated to the Los Angeles Parks Foundation, The Boys and Girls Club of San Fernando Valley, Operation Life, and the Los Angeles Stentorian Firefighters. Online ticket purchases and same day ticket sales from branded booths onsite will also support these organizations.
