Guitar Mash presents the 7TH ANNUAL URBAN CAMPFIRE, a unique and immersive musical experience where artists break down the wall between the stage and the house, and invite the audience to play and sing with them.
This year's theme is “Songs for Change” which focuses on the power of music to generate awareness and bring people together.
No guitar? No problem - bring yourself, and sing along. Ages 10 and up.
