You may say Natalie Backman is a dreamer, but she’s not the only one. For the third time, Imagine Fest, a yoga and music festival founded by Backman, will return to the Santa Monica Mountains. This year’s event will be held at Peter Strauss Ranch from 11 a.m.-7:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 21. The action-packed day benefits Unlikely Heroes, a nonprofit that rescues and rehabilitates children who are victims of sex trafficking.
