This Weekend’s #SOFEST Announces Impressive Lineup To #SaveOurStages
NIVA (the National Independent Venue Association) and YouTube have announced the lineup for this weekend’s Save Our Stages Festival
#SOSFEST will run as a virtual music festival featuring all original content starting this Friday, October 16 through Sunday, October 18.
The festival will be hosted by Reggie Watts and feature performances from 35 artists recorded live from more than 25 independent concert venues across the US.
“The smaller music venues and the ones that are really struggling are not only culturally important, they are emotionally important,” shared Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters.
The effort will raise funds for NIVA’s Save Our Stages advocacy efforts and a grant program to provide relief to these important members of the independent music, comedy and arts community.
#SOSFEST will livestream in its entirety on NIVA’s Official YouTube Channel with segments simultaneously airing on each performer’s Official Artist YouTube Channels.
Sponsor Bud Light Seltzer who will donate $1 million to NIVA as part of #SOSFEST. With the help of production and livestream partners Big Room and Bulldog Digital Media, performances are being shot in some of the nation’s most iconic independent concert venues.
