The National Independent Venue Association (NIVA) is partnering with YouTube for a 3-day virtual music festival to #SaveOurStages, SOSFEST.
This is to save independent music venues from ruin as shows around the world are cancelled due to the COVID-19.
The idea for the online festival “started out with the premise that every great artist started their career at an independent, small stage, somewhere around the country,” says Stephen Sternschein, NIVA’s board treasurer and executive producer of #SOSFEST.
“We literally just started calling up artists one at a time, talking about NIVA and supporting us through our advocacy program and asking them if they’d like to perform at the festival.”
So this is going to be a brand new experience to all the fans around the world.
Music venues and dance halls were the first to close because of the COVID-19 pandemic and will be among the last venues to reopen.
SOSFEST, will be a relief to all the small venues out their trying to stand up on their feet again.
We only have a week waiting as IT will be streamed live on October 16-18.
