Organization Overview:

Levitt Pavilions is the national nonprofit behind the largest free concert series in America. At heart, we are an arts for social impact organization, using free, live music as the vehicle to revitalize public spaces and add vitality to neighborhoods, creating citywide destinations. There are currently six Levitt venues across the country (including two in the Los Angeles area), forming the only national network offering free concert series. Each Levitt venue offers 50+ free concerts between May and October every year. 

This spring marks the beginning of a new era with the introduction of the Levitt AMP Music Series, which will bring the Levitt program to 10 additional small to mid-sized cities across America (for a list of Levitt AMP winners visit www.amp.levittpavilions.org)—which means that free Levitt concerts will be happening in 16 cities this year!
