Virtual music festival PlayOn Fest to be held this weekend
With large gatherings in public places basically illegal now, organisers are going online for a solution to avoid having their events cancelled or postponed.
Looks like literally going online is the answer. One way to avoid cancellation or postponement is to simply hold the events online, like the upcoming virtual music festival PlayOn Fest.
The first ever PlayOn Fest, taglined “Music is NOT cancelled”, will be held this weekend over the course of three days. The photo above states 24 to 26 April but of course, for us on the Eastern side of the world, that’s 25 to 27 April (Saturday to Monday).
LL Cool J will kick off the three-day live streaming event, which will be streamed exclusively on Songkick’s YouTube channel, at 12pm (GMT +8) this Saturday.
Tons of popular singers will be performing at PlayOn Fest.
Performers for the mega music fest include Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars, David Guetta, Bazzi, Bebe Rexha, Charlie Puth, Coldplay and more big names.
Apart from providing entertainment to music-lovers who are staying put at home, the event by Warner Music Group is also held to support the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organisation.
