Quarantine Comes Alive – Saturday, May 30th beginning at 10am

60+ artists, one day! PLUS1 COVID-19 Relief Fund and nugs.tv to present a one day virtual music festival: Quarantine Comes Alive.
This donation-based event will directly benefit the participating musicians as well as Sweet Relief, MusiCares, Center for Disaster Philanthropy, World Central Kitchen, Partners In Health, Trans Lifeline, Backline, and local organizations helping the homeless.
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 coordinate musicians efforts to support those in our community most at risk from the pandemic. 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 PLU
Ari Fink of SiriusXM JamOn, Phish Radio, and Dave Matthews Band Radio will serve as the host of the event, which will also include exclusive set break interviews with artists from across the lineup as well as the minds behind Quarantine Comes Alive’s various non-profit partners. The musical marathon will consist of new “live” sets captured in quarantine, with some archival gems sprinkled in, promising a day of non-stop entertainment starting at 1:00 PM ET. Much of the new content was produced in safe studio spaces, or captured creatively between band members who worked together remotely from various locations to stitch together songs.
Of course, half the fun of a music festival is the audience experience, the chance to mingle with your fellow revelers. Quarantine Comes Alive has that aspect covered, too—alongside the main Quarantine Comes Alive stream, we’ll be hosting Zoom dance parties all day. Get dressed up, deck out your living room, and show the rest of the QCA “crowd” how your quaranteam comes alive!
Starting today, fans are encouraged to head to QuarantineComesAlive.com to RSVP for the event. Those who make a donation of any size here will receive an email with a link to the stream on the day of the event, Saturday, May 30th.
