The Light Up The Blues Concert returns for its sixth year after a three-year hiatus following the pandemic. The event will celebrate the autism community, while helping to fuel Autism Speaks’ mission to provide services and supports for the needs of all autistic individuals, across the spectrum and throughout the life span. Proceeds from the Light Up The Blues 6 Concert will go toward Autism Speaks’ efforts, which include funding life-enhancing research, increasing early childhood screening and interventions, and improving the transition to adulthood for people with autism.
“We couldn’t be more excited to celebrate the resiliency of the autism community over the last few years with the reintroduction of the Light Up The Blues 6 Concert,” said Keith Wargo, CEO & President, Autism Speaks. “The breadth of talent and diverse audiences that this event brings together reinforces a collective commitment to standing together and fostering understanding and inclusion for autistic individuals. We are proud to be a part of this incredible event as it continues to bring us closer to achieving a world where all people with autism can reach their full potential.”
Over the years, the Light Up the Blues Concert has featured artists including Neil Young, Crosby, Stills & Nash, John Mayer, Patti Smith, Brandi Carlile, Sheryl Crow, Beck, Burt Bacharach, Don Felder, Jakob Dylan, Nikka Costa, The War On Drugs, and more, and has raised millions of dollars in support of the work of Autism Speaks, helping to drive the organization’s mission.
