spin cycle presents

Spin Cycle Presents is a Los Angeles-based event promotion company founded by Keith Erickson in 2009. Keith created Spin Cycle out of a need for like-minded folks to perform, network, socialize and grow into the vibrant community it is today.

The Spin Cycle @ TRiP series is a monthly eclectic musical showcase featuring popular bands and up and coming live acts looking for exposure, adding a much-desired Northeast improvisational flavor to the West Side of LA. These shows have quickly built a loyal following and become a central hub for Los Angeles' growing jamband and experimental music community

In addition to this popular music series, Spin Cycle has been involved in other high profile events around the LA area, including everal sold out "Cosmik Playground" superjam concerts (featuring members of Umphrey's McGee, Frank Zappa, String Cheese Incident and Digital Tape Machine), Soulshine Daydream Wellness Festival, Shaky Feelin's seminal Album Release Party at the historic Crest Theatre, Mission 24 (a 24-hour underground music festival), the Shakedown Music Series at the Basement Tavern and the live TV broadcast series Birds of a Feather @ Kulaks Woodshed.


Soulshine Daydream will unite friends in the community to experience a healthy, educational and fun-filled gathering that will encourage & inspire all.

Spin Cycle Presents, Children of the Moon and associate producers Rachel Smalheiser, Jennifer Lidell and Michael Weston are pleased to bring you the 2nd edition of the  “Soulshine Daydream” Music and Wellness Festival, on Saturday June 23rd, 2018. 

This years festival will take place on private property in Santa Clarita, CA. Our location is right off the 14 fwy, surrounded by mountain peaks, horse ranches and national forest. With little to no cell reception, guests immediately feel as if they have been transported to a secret location in the distant country. But in fact they are located right here in LA, in the canyons of the Sierra Pelona Mountains

The epic event will open its doors at noon on Saturday June 23, 2018. Performances and Activities will begin shortly after and continue until the very late night with the official closing ceremonies at sunrise on Sunday morning. Yes, we are essentially have two days worth of activities packed into one mega day. 

This years festival will be filled with bands, DJ's and other musical performances. But we still plan to maintain the ideals of sustainability, accountability, and community. 

The summer daydream will be jam packed with a large variety of wellness activities, inviting you to bend, stretch, focus and expand your mind and body. Grab a spot in the shade and relax at one of our educational workshops.
