No Scrubz Worldwide, a pioneering force in promoting diversity and inclusivity within the music industry, is celebrating its 6th anniversary alongside its inaugural fundraising campaign, “No Boundariez.” This year’s theme signifies the commitment to challenge the limitations imposed on marginalized genders by amplifying talent and champions who have been pushing for diversity within their community. With an array of exciting events and a dedication to breaking barriers, No Scrubz Worldwide continues to redefine the music scene, while providing a platform for emerging artists to shine.
Founded by the visionary Shakilo Barton, also known as Lo Dino, No Scrubz Worldwide emerged in 2017 as a Ladies Night in the vibrant neighborhood of Downtown Las Vegas. However, the trajectory quickly shifted when numerous female, trans, and non-binary DJs approached Shakilo, seeking guidance and opportunities within the industry. Recognizing the lack of diversity and inclusivity, Shakilo made a groundbreaking decision to open up performance slots to these talented individuals, transforming No Scrubz into a platform that uplifts underrepresented voices.
Since its inception, No Scrubz Worldwide has provided a stage for over 100 DJs and performers, offering emerging talent the opportunity to showcase their skills. By curating Open Format sets, the community has become a hub for artistic expression and collaboration, fostering a supportive, safe, and vibrant environment. Through their innovative approach, No Scrubz has cultivated a space where marginalized genders can thrive and where the music community can celebrate the richness of diverse perspectives.
