Ticked Off Music Fest Los AngelesThe Ticked Off Music Fest is a U.S. concert series dedicated to the prevention, awareness and cure of Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses that have become the fastest-growing infectious diseases in the country.

Our most recent event to launch was Ticked Off Music Fest Los Angeles, scheduled for Saturday, March 28, 2015 at the House of Blues at 8430 Sunset Blvd., West Hollywood, CA


The music line-up featured platinum-selling recording artists Cracker. The band is best known for their 1991 release "Cracker," featuring "Happy Birthday to Me" and "Teen Angst," followed by their 1993 release "Kerosene Hat," featuring "Low" and "Euro-Trash Girl." The band was promoting their latest release "Berkeley to Bakersfield."

Special guest was Les Stroud from the "Survivorman" TV series. Les and his full band played songs from his recent solo releases.

LA native and former X and Lone Justice guitarist Tony Gilkyson played his brand of alternative country.

Nashville-native Alisa Turner played her breakout hit "Breathing" about her own struggles with Lyme disease.

Also appearing was Lyme activist, author and lead singer Natalie London and her band Hey, King!

Sixteen year-old Lyme survivor and singing sensation Keta played her original tunes. She came off of a West Coast tour where she opened for platinum-selling artist Sam Smith.

Gregg Kirk and The Zen Engines played songs from the band's recent CD releases, all inspired by his healing journeys through Lyme disease.

The fest also featured several well-known speakers from the Lyme community, including "Out of the Woods" author Katina Makris, Lorraine Johnson from LymeDisease.org, and Inanna House founder Mara Williams.

The event was sponsored by Bay Area Lyme Foundation, RightsCorp, Insect Shield, and LA Weekly.

Proceeds from the event benefited LymeLight Foundation, LymeDisease.org and Inanna House.

Lyme and tick-borne diseases are the fastest growing infectious diseases in the country, around the world, and in California. The ticks that carry Lyme disease have been found in all but two counties in California. Infected ticks have been found in 42 of 58 counties. Los Angeles County alone has seven parks where infected ticks have been found. There is a very large community of Lyme Patients in Southern California who struggle to get the help & support they need.

The goal of the concert series is to drive awareness, give tips on prevention, connect those suffering from illness with Lyme-educated doctors, and to educate on the many symptoms of the diseases.
