Like the rest of the globe right now, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has crippled the live event & music sectors. To restore entertainment and communities, Save the Scene Virtual Music & Arts Festival is established. It will stream on April 3 – April 20, 2020, and plans to give back to those who made it special.
Save the Scene (STS) dropped an initial lineup led by FL-raised headliner Acraze plus 80+ of the region’s finest artists. These include Lizzy Jane, Electric Kif, G-Space, Eazybaked, Mystic Grizzly, Rechulski, Laser Assassins, Los Wizzards, Ray Benton and The Voice-contestant Allegra Miles. The festival will broadcast via streams on the Save the Scene website (www.SaveTheScene.Live) & YouTube Channel. The event kicks off Friday, April 3—April 20, 2020 and runs nightly from 6 PM – 10 PM(EST).
Each ‘festival day’ will consist of a daily theme curated by different labels, brands, venues and promoter teams. These include members of Alliance Nightlife, Bayne Productions, Brainquility Music Festival, Brotherly Love Productions, Celine Orlando, Mantra, Pots & Painted, Propaganda Lake Worth, Rebel 11 Studios, Shows I Go To, and many others. Through its app partner, Unitea, fans will have the opportunity to redeem artist merchandise. Additionally, there are free tickets to upcoming shows and streamers can also redeem food/drink vouchers.
Mix & mingle
Moreover, one highlight is the April 5 takeover at Rebel 11 Studios. Fans will have the opportunity to film and record a song at Rebel 11. Also, they can hang out with artists like Allegra Miles, Franscene, ArtLoveTrap, Big N Slim and MadReckless. Furthermore, the tracks will be included in an upcoming documentary, and the proceeds will benefit charity.
Taking things over
Because Save the Scene is a platform for regional artists, brands, and labels can recoup profits lost due to the coronavirus. Although events remain cancelled until May, fans will be able to watch and support their favorite artists via donation links. Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival’s Jungle 51, Manifest Gang, A 40oz. Collective, Incendia, Celine Orlando, Into The Garden and The House Hats Collective are among the nightly takeover hosts that will feature up-and-coming regional talent.
Save the Scene will foster community, music, and arts over a two week period that will help fans navigate these strange and uncharted times. The festival kicks off on April 3 (6 PM EST) via live stream at www.SaveTheScene.Live. Streamers can follow the festival on its Facebook and Instagram pages too.
