On Saturday, May 30th, New York music media and production company Live For Live Music, in partnership with Nugs.TV and PLUS1, will present Quarantine Comes Alive, a one-day virtual music festival. Featuring over 60 artists, the donation-based event will split proceeds between all the participating artists and the PLUS1 COVID-19 Relief Fund. Modeled after successful one-day music marathons Brooklyn Comes Alive and Denver Comes Alive, this online event was founded to support and celebrate musicians, treat fans to an all-day couch festival and provide much-needed relief during these difficult times.
dedicated to "drive social change and and catalyze cultural
momentum toward equity, dignity and access for all," PLUS1's
COVID-19 Relief Fund seeks to aid musicians who are the most affected
by the pandemic and works directly with non-profit organizations like
Sweet Relief, Center for Disaster Philanthropy, World Central
Kitchen, MusiCares and Partners in Health.
The musicians performing at Quarantine Comes Alive represent a wide swath of genres, from bluegrass and indie rock to EDM, funk and soul. Artists include Circles Around The Sun, Arlo McKinley, Big Sam's Funky Nation, Jon Cleary, Lettuce, Greensky Bluegrass, Ivan Neville, SPAGA, Nigel Hall, The Nth Power, George Porter Jr. and many more.
entertainment executive Ari Fink, known for curating SiriusXM's Pearl
Jam Radio, Phish Radio and Dave Matthews Band Radio, is hosting the
virtual event which will also include set-break interviews with
musicians from the event's lineup and Quarantine Comes Alive's
non-profit partners. Additionally, alongside the main Quarantine
