Our Mission. Our Community. Our Goals
Empowering inclusion and accessibility through music, Shine Music Festival unites people of all abilities and backgrounds in a transformative live music experience. Our innovative blend of traditional festival vibes, comprehensive accessibility measures, and state-of-the-art adaptive technology creates a truly universal space where everyone can revel in the power of music together. Join us in breaking down barriers and shining a light on the limitless potential of a truly inclusive community.
Music has the unique power to bring people of all abilities together, fostering a sense of community and shared experience. When the energy of a live performance intermingles with the energy of the crowd, a magical bubble of inclusivity, celebration, and joy envelops us all. Yet, for too many individuals, these transformative experiences remain out of reach due to inadequate accessibility laws and practices. At Shine Music, we believe that everyone deserves to experience the magic of live music, and we are committed to breaking down barriers and creating a truly inclusive and accessible musical community for all.
