Summer Meltdown to rock the Santa Clarita Skate Park

The 11th annual Summer Meltdown Autism Awareness Art and Music Festival brings 30 bands and four stages to the city of Santa Clarita Skatepark on April 26.

Matisyahu, The Dirty Heads, Seedless, Stick Figure, Cisco Adler, Krooked Trees, Katastro, Badfish, Hirie and more will perform.

Offering more than music, 14 artists will paint and draw live on stage as bands perform.

The event also promises food trucks for even the most critical of palettes, as well as handcrafted goods for purchase from local and regional artisans.

Founders and students of the Yes I Can program, many of whom are teens living on the spectrum of autism, co-produced the event.

YIC began as a pilot program in the William S. Hart Union High School District in 1999, with the help of the city of Santa Clarita. In the program, students learn about disabilities, self-advocacy, goal setting, self-determination, collaboration, communication skills and the appreciation of diversity in a year-long elective class.
