On Saturday, May 30, Live For Live Music in partnership with Nugs.TV and PLUS1 will presents their one-day virtual music festival, Quarantine Comes Alive. With events like Brooklyn Comes Alive cancelled for the time being, Quarantine Comes Alive offers a music marathon with more than 60 artists with a reported 90% brand new content created for the event.
The non-stop day of entertainment starting at 1 PM ET on May 30. Much of the new content will be produced in safe studio spaces, or captured creatively between band members who will work together remotely from various locations.
Dedicated to an even split of donation proceeds between the participating artists and PLUS1 COVID-19 Relief Fund, the event is modeled after one-day music marathons Brooklyn Comes Alive and Denver Comes Alive. Quarantine Comes Alive was founded to celebrate and support musicians, provide fans with unique musical experiences from the comfort of their couch, and raise money for comprehensive COVID-19 relief during this unprecedented time.
In response to the devastating COVID-19 outbreak, PLUS1 launched a PLUS1 COVID-19 Relief Fund to support those in the musical community most affected. Working directly with leading non-profit organizations like Sweet Relief, MusiCares, Center for Disaster Philanthropy, World Central Kitchen, Partners In Health, Trans Lifeline, and Backline, the PLUS1 COVID-19 Relief Fund’s goal is to provide aid where it is needed most. PLUS1 is a leading non-profit organization that mobilizes cultural leaders and their fans to bring visibility, awareness and funding for social and environmental justic
Ari Fink of SiriusXM JamOn, Phish Radio & Dave Matthews Band Radio will host the virtual event, as well as set break interviews with artists from across the lineup and the minds behind Quarantine Comes Alive’s various non-profit partners.
