UPDATE: Sonicbids’ Stay The F*ck Home Fest continues! See the link below to apply.
Also a shout-out to TuneCore artist GOLDEN who will be performing on this Friday’s (May 1) line-up!
This COVID thing affects us all. It’s a weird time and unprecedented action has to be taken, and that mainly entails staying put to avoid the chances of spreading it any further. We’re doing our best to keep encouraging artists to work on their craft, develop marketing tactics, engage with fans, and, well, basically just stay sane during this time of self-quarantine.
Our friends at Sonicbids have taken it one step further by launching their Stay The F*ck Home Festival! Adopting the recently trending hashtag that encourages everyone to stay home and ‘flatten the curve’, Sonicbids has opened up a virtual showcase for artists to perform online.
And the best part about it? Whether you’re an artist performing or you’re a fan spectating, you can do so from the comfort of your living room.
Starting Friday, March 27th, a select group of artists have been performing one to three songs from their remote location, and broadcast it live via Zoom to fans and industry professionals. This has been a weekly event.
Partnering with CEG, Launch Global and Backline, Sonicbids introduced the virtual showcase as an opportunity to strengthen the music community and do its part to give creative opportunities to artists and keep fans engaged with live music.
PLEASE NOTE: Applications for Friday, May 1st have closed, but artists are encouraged to apply for future dates.
Just looking to watch? RSVP to catch the live stream this Friday here.
