Free, with donations being accepted for the NIVA Emergency Relief Fund
The National Independent Venue Association (NIVA) has partnered with YouTube for a three-day virtual benefit music festival to support independent music venues during COVID-19. Save Our Stages Festival (SOSFEST) will stream live from 25 independent venues across the country.
SOSFEST will feature original performances from artists like Foo Fighters, Miley Cyrus, The Lumineers, Major Lazer, The Roots, Leon Bridges and others. This benefit event, hosted by Reggie Watts, aims to generate awareness, advocacy and donations for the NIVA Emergency Relief Fund, directly supporting vulnerable venues that are experiencing extreme revenue loss.
