The Ticked Off Music Fest is a U.S. concert series dedicated to the prevention, awareness and patient support for Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses that have become the fastest-growing infectious diseases in the country – six times faster-spreading than HIV.
Since launching our first show in 2013, The Ticked Off Music Fest continues to be the only ongoing music event solely focused on Lyme disease education, awareness and fundraising that travels to trouble spots around the country. We go to areas where the rate of infection is high but awareness is low.
The events have created a patented formula that has been financially, philanthropically and educationally successful, reaching into communities; bringing music, joy, healing, and support to those suffering as well as raising funds for Lyme disease research and patient support.
We have visited Wilmington, DE, Jacksonville, FL, Annapolis, MD, Los Angeles, CA, Honolulu, HI, Woolwich, ME, and Richmond, VA so far and have plans to throw other events across the country this year.
In 2020, the concert series hosted a combination of Facebook Live broadcast events that took place digitally and not in front of a live audience. In light of social-distancing circumstances related to the COVID19 pandemic, the Ticked Off Music Fest rolled with these changes and scheduled five events in sequence with several musicians who had appeared at previous live benefit events.
The series is seeking sponsors for individual city locations as well as annual series sponsors who value national exposure.
