The goal isn't only to produce unique and unforgettable live music experiences, but to ensure we have a positive impact on the local community while enriching the local music scene. These standards have defined our work since day one.
We are excited to announce the launch of Baja Roots, a world music festival combining the sounds of top artists from Los Angeles to Ensenada to be held on August 26th in Rosarito, Baja California with the backdrop of the mighty Pacific. Profits from the event will support local orphanages both through direct donation and by funding sustainable projects managed by Baja Angels of the Sea, a non-profit operating out of Puerto Nuevo. Over ten acts will perform on two stages throughout the event, with Big Mountain, Tomorrows Bad Seeds, and Somos Uno already confirmed, live art will be auctioned between sets, while kids from local orphanages will learn about protecting the oceans and local waterways from the experts at La Jolla Scripps Institute.
PROJECT ACTS: Big Mountain, Tomorrows Bad Seeds, Somos Unos, and many more TBA

A symboitic event and epic journey created with the producers of Los Cabos Open of Surf to bring the music of Southern California to the beaches of Mexico. Fans joined the wild crew of 30+ musicians as they traveled down Highway 1 through the hashtag #caravan2cabo, while artists performed at schools and orphanages along the way. Musical instruments were donated at each stop thanks to Taylor Guitars and individual contributors. Once at the final destination, bands performed for a packed crowd of 5000+ locals, pro surfers and tourists. The documentary premiered at The Belly Up (Solona Beach, CA) and the Music Box (San Diego, CA).

SLM in partnership with Hitmark Group helped produce video content for KAABOO since year one. KAABOO was San Diego's premier music festival which started in 2015 until it was sold in 2019 to Virgin Atlantic. Unfortunately Virgin had to liquidate many assetts during the 2020 pandemic, including the KAABOO festival. While Hitmark provided the videography talent, SLM provided logistics and personell to stage many of the scenes captured and used in the final edits.
With years of experience capturing the essence of live music, Hitmark continues to be SLM preferred partners for video and editing talent.
