The 2024 edition of the LACER Starfest takes place Sunday. This event will see various middle and high schools that participate in the LACER program come to Hollywood for a showcase of various performances and showcases from the students. 

This year, the theme is “Unleashed Talents,”, and it will focus on highlighting the many talents and skills of the students attending. 

Attending middle school acts this year include King Middle’s Dance Team, Irving STEAM Magnet’s Rock Band and Dance Team, Sotomayor Art & Science Magnet’s Spirit Squad, Le Conte’s Rock Band, and Bancroft’s DJ Crew. 

The high school acts are Hollywood’s Dance Guard and Marching Band, John Marshall’s Dance and Drumline, and Fairfax High’s Korean Drumming team. 

The event takes place from 1 to 3 p.m. on Sunday, and students will perform in the auditorium at Hollywood High. It will be hosted by Brenda Sarai Zuniga, a local actor, mindfulness coach, comedian, musician, and humanitarian. 

The many sponsors include the Wilbur May Foundation, the D’Addario Foundation, and the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs, among others. This will be the first showcase of LACER students since the performances at the Hard Rock Cafe in February, which was limited to musical acts only. 

Interested attendees should RSVP for free tickets at lacerafterschool.org/events.
