Dance from Home is coming into homes on April 4 starting at 2pm PST via Twitch. The charitable live-stream will benefit artists who’ve been impacted by COVID-19 and provide relief funds. Gene Farris, John Summit, Gawp and Nakadia are a few of the artists scheduled to play. The virtual event partners include PLUS1, Arcade Fire’s charity, and its COVID-19 relief fund. The funds raised will go towards medical expenses, lodging, clothing, food, and other vital living expenses to those impacted due to sickness or loss of work.
Our friends at PLUS1 are working to make sure that the needs of those in our music community, and the needs of the most vulnerable are met during this devastating time. Contribute if you can. – via Arcade Fire’s Twitter
PLUS1 is working with leading non-profit organizations Sweet Relief, Centre for Disaster Philanthropy, World Central Kitchen, Partners In Health, Trans Lifeline, and several local organizations around the country to provide immediate assistance. Originally established in 2010, the charity supported Haiti’s recovery efforts during its earthquake of that year. Arcade Fire soon realized the power behind their community and decided to build on its successful charitable efforts. Now as the world faces a pandemic due to COVID-19 , Dance From Home calls upon the music community to join efforts and support those heavily impacted.
Share in John Summit’s excitement, and tune in on Saturday, April 4 at 2pm PT to help raise money for COVID-19. Donate to PLUS1 COVID-19 Relief Fund.
