Let the Skirball’s eclectic Sunset Concerts transport you around the globe—Thursday nights, this summer. Dedicated to inspiring the diverse populations of greater Los Angeles through innovative music, the nineteenth season of this series once again showcases exceptional global talents, both legendary and emerging.
As always, the six Thursday night concerts are presented free of charge in the Skirball’s spectacular yet intimate central courtyard, where audiences sing, dance, and gather at the foot of the stage to engage with the performers. This season’s line-up features an array of genre-defying music—from Afro-Colombian funk and psychedelic Malian music to imaginative Americana and pan–Middle Eastern grooves.
All concerts begin at 8:00 p.m.
FREE; no reservations
Doors open at 7:00 p.m.
Limited seating on a first-come, first-served basis

Helpful tips: Concertgoers must show a parking stub in order to get entry tickets to the concert. Please remember to bring the stub with you after you park. Taking a taxi or car service? Ask the driver to drop you off at the front steps so a Skirball staff member can provide you with a ticket.
