RADIO.COM is proud to partner with the Island Time Music Festival, now in its 12th year! The "volunteer-driven" music and charity event aims to raise 100% of the operating costs of The Little Yellow School House for physically and mentally disabled children on the island of Isla Mujeres, Mexico.
Due to the pandemic, the one-of-a-kind festival has gone virtual this year with performances scheduled from Vince Gill, Lee Brice, Jake Owen, Runaway June, LOCASH, John Rich, A Thousand Horses, Lisa Loeb, Blackberry Smoke, Emily West, Levi Hummon, and many more. The event will be hosted by Kellie Pickler and Kyle Jacobs.

This year's virtual event was produced and directed by award-winning cinematographer Shaun Silva and TackleBox Films. Shaun and his team have won mantles full of ACM and CMA awards and helmed the award-winning Kenny Chesney documentary, The Boys of Fall.
Over the years, The Little Yellow Schoolhouse has grown from six students to now 68 full-time attendees and has a 79% conversion rate at educating children to a level that they are accepted in public schools.
Mexico's public school system lacks the infrastructure to educate kids at this level of disability. In these regions, private schools (as in the U.S.) are expensive and out of financial reach for most families. This school's model is similar to Saint Jude's, with families paying zero out-of-pocket. Tuition and supplies are provided by the funds the Island Time Music Festival raises.
