Sunstock began in 2016 with 2500+ Los Angelenos in attendance, with local bands including Cults, Wavves, The Allah-Las and more, and with a fundraising mission that resulted in a $10k donation of solar power to Kids Cancer Connection. The festival is non-profit, solar-powered, and focused on strengthening the LA community and sustainability movement to create a better future. Sunstock is the brainchild of Trapdoor Social, who also produce solar-powered concerts on tour around the country.



GRID Alternatives’ vision is a transition to clean, renewable energy that includes everyone, making solar technology and job training accessible to underserved communities.
