Quarantine Comes Alive livestream jam marathon announced with over 60 artists
On Saturday, May 30th, Live For Live Music, in partnership with Nugs.TV and PLUS1, presents a one-day virtual music festival—Quarantine Comes Alive.
The musical marathon will feature over 60 artists and consist of new sets captured in quarantine, with a few archival gems sprinkled in, promising a day of non-stop entertainment starting at 1:00 PM ET. 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—modeled after the famed one-day music marathons Brooklyn Comes Alive and Denver 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, Backline the PLUS1 COVID-19 Relief Fund’s goal is to provide aid where it's needed most.
Participating artists on the lineup span an eclectic range of genres, presenting everything from bluegrass to singer-songwriters, jam bands to indie rock, electronic music to funk, soul to Americana and more—surely there is something for every musical taste in store. A full list of artists can be found below.
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.
