The Lights on the Lawn (LOTL) student-run benefit concert is known for Music That Matters: incredible concerts for an amazing Nashville cause. LOTL is back for its biggest year yet!

The show has featured the best of dance music's talent, from The Chainsmokers and Louis the Child to this year’s headliner: Loud Luxury!

We are excited to announce Lights on the Lawn's 11th show will take place on the Alumni Lawn at Vanderbilt University on Friday, September 29th, 2023. All profits will go to our essential partner organization: The Mary Parrish Center.

For 20 years, The Mary Parrish Center has provided survivors of interpersonal violence and their children safe, accessible and compassionate housing with individualized care that promotes healing, autonomy and hope. They are a housing first, trauma-informed, transitional, and permanent housing program for survivors of interpersonal violence and their children.

The Mary Parrish Center offers support services through three programs: their Transitional Housing Program, Rapid Re-housing Program, and Coordinated Entry Process specific to survivors of interpersonal violence. In addition to housing, they offer survivors in their programs support services like case management, clinical therapy, crisis intervention, economic empowerment, enrichment activities, financial assistance, housing advocacy, and workforce development.

Over the past 11 years, Lights on the Lawn has raised over $749,000 for the Mary Parrish Center - making it the largest private funder for the MPC. Please help us continue our support for survivors by making a donation today.
