From New York, NY, Backline will host “Set Break” on April 10th. This will be their first-ever livestream fundraiser on The Relix Channel, exclusively on Twitch. The event will feature live performances worldwide, public service announcements from music professionals, and immersive wellness experiences also.
Backline dedicates their time to connecting music industry professionals and their families with mental health and wellness resources as a nonprofit organization. Backline seeks to provide a safe, private, and immediate place to go for help with the difficulties that life in this industry brings.
Set Break intends to bring the music industry together to break the stigma surrounding mental health in the community. During the event, money will be raised to expand Backline’s programs and services in a time when they are needed most. In addition, Set Break will incorporate wellness experiences from Wanderlust, Breathwrk, The Big Quiet, and Meditation Studio by Muse to promote collective healing for those greatly affected by the closures within the last year.
Backline has provided a safe place to land for industry workers during this time, and the event will bring together fans, artists, and organizations who all believe in the cause and want to create a safer and more supported environment for music to thrive.Backline’s Executive Director Hilary Gleason
