Artist and Music Lineup Announced
Bring a blanket and enjoy the show!
An eclectic group of artists and musicians headlined by Guadalajara-based artist collective, Homeless, will perform at the first Outpost Cup tournament and fundraiser on June 6. Whether its playing or watching soccer, watching performances and interacting with artists, listening to music, picnicking or strolling on the beautiful and hidden hiking trails that are part of Vista Hermosa park and next to the soccer field, this public event offers something to everyone.
As part of a series of music and artist performances that will punctuate the Cup's soccer tournament, Mexican art collective Homeless plans to play a soccer game between "dictators" and "guerrillas."
Other scheduled performers include Singer Erika Miranda; Artists Karen Anzoategui, Irina Contreras. Kwik (Megan Wilson and Eliza Barrios), Reanne Estrada, Rebeca Hernandez, The Egg, Gordon Winiemko, and Jenn and the Lemonade Biker Gang; and DJs Alejandro Cohen of Dublab and Alex Mendieta.
The day will be animated by MC Anthea Raymond and announcers John Ramey and Jennifer Doyle.
The "Copa de Outpost" is hand-crafted by artists Carolyn Castaño and Reanne Estrada.
The Outpost Cup will run from 8AM to 6PM, June 6, at Vista Hermosa Park, 100 North Toluca Street in the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles. (The park is on First Street west of the 110 (Harbor Freeway) between Beaudry and Glendale Blvd.)

The core of the event is a series of eight-on-eight soccer games, with teams classed as either competitive or casual, featuring artists, neighborhood groups, business people and others. The event also will feature food and drink from local vendors and food trucks, including Monsieur Egg and Coolhaus, all in the striking Vista Hermosa Park overlooking downtown Los Angeles. Suggested donation for attendees is $3, which gives the donor a discount ticket for food purchases from sponsor Coolhaus.
This event is made possible with the support of Woodbury University, Niky's Sports, The Oinkster, The York, Sustainarealty, Echo Park Remax, and Café de Leche with special thanks to Bret Nicely, Dublab, Sidestreet Projects, F8 F11- Amy Tierney Photography, Daniel Morales and Youth Empowered through Scholastic Sports Services (Y.E.S.S.S.), Occidental College, Los Angeles City Councilmember Eric Garcetti, District 13, the City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks, Echo Park Recreation Center, and the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy.
Event proceeds will help bring South American artists to Los Angeles for extended residencies. The first residency, scheduled for this fall, will involve Grupo Bijari, the Sao Paulo-based artist collective that designed the Outpost Cup logo.
