What is SOULNIC©?
SOULNIC© is a Soul Music Picnic that will take place at LA’s historic Grifﬁth Park. As the ﬁrst event of its kind in Los Angeles, SOULNIC© will set out to follow in the tradition of several, successful Soulful House Music picnics that have been taking place annually in cities like Chicago, New York and Atlanta for several years. However, our purpose for this event will transcend music culture and impact the lives of youth through our commitment to raise money for The Lula Washington Dance Theatre.
WHEN: Saturday, June 26,2010 10:00 AM – Sunset
WHERE: GRIFFITH PARK (Crystal Springs Picnic Area)
WE’LL BRING: Incredible DJs (with a few surprises),10,000 watts of sound, Volleyball, playground for the kids, extra DJ equipment for you to play around on courtesy of Numark and much more!
YOU BRING: The Family, Friends, Co-workers, BBQ Grills (but we’ll have a few), Food, Drinks (NO ALCOHOL), Blankets, Sunscreen, and anything else that will make you comfortable being outdoors.
Dogs are welcome, but MUST be on a leash. The Park Rangers will surely “unleash” a hefty fine on you for not having your dog on a leash. On that note, maybe you should just come and relax without your little pooch.
• Start from the intersection of Los Feliz Blvd. and Riverside Drive. It’s the intersection with the big fountain, right off the Los Feliz exit of the 5 freeway.
• Riverside Drive becomes Crystal Springs Drive North of Los Feliz. So take Crystal Springs Drive North into Griffith Park.
• Follow the signs that say “SOULNIC” (yes, it’s that easy)
NO WINE, BEER OR LIQUOR
The Park Rangers are REAL Park Rangers/Police. Don’t ruin your good time by giving them a reason to check your coolers and issue you a ticket for having alcohol on park grounds. This is a rare family event that we’d like to keep going for years to come so please be responsible and respectful of this simple rule.

Producing the event is Extra Mild Sauce™
Extra Mild Sauce™ (“EMS”) is one of the few organizations in Los Angeles, CA committed to providing an outdoor experience that is focused on soulful music, dance and its musicians. Since music and arts programs have been cut from our schools and with so few soul music bands signed to major record labels today (compared to the 70s and 80s), we found it necessary, if not overdue, to raise awareness through an event that is community-based and philanthropic. The result is the beginning of, what we hope to be, an annual summer event called SOULNIC©.
