NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess) — Warner Music Group announced its artists will be featured in the PlayOn Fest, a virtual music festival supporting the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization (WHO), powered by the UN Foundation.
As part of the festival, PlayOn will use historic performances from notable festivals and venues, including Coachella, Sydney Opera House, Lollapalooza, Apollo Theater, Bonnaroo, The O2 Arena, Primavera Sound, Red Rocks Amphitheater, Rock In Rio, Global Citizen Festival and more to the Internet.
The festival will include archival footage from the likes of Bruno Mars, Coldplay, Green Day, Cardi B, Ed Sheeran, Janelle Monáe, Twenty One Pilots, Lil Uzi Vert, David Guetta, and more, as well as a look back at Nipsey Hussle’s Victory Lap album release show.
The festival kicks off at 12 PM ET on Friday with LL Cool J and will continue through the weekend for 72 straight hours on Songkick’s YouTube channel.
Warner Music Group has also launched a pre-sale of exclusive PlayOn Fest merch with all of the proceeds going to support to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization.
In addition, fans will be encouraged to click-to-donate throughout the three-day-event. Donations will support WHO’s work to track and understand the spread of the virus; to ensure patients get the care they need and frontline workers get essential supplies and information, and to accelerate the development of a vaccine and treatments for all who need them.
