The festival is set to take place on Noisey’s Youtube channel on Apr. 11, at 5p.m., EST. Margo Price, who just announced the postponement of her forthcoming album, That’s How Rumors Get Started, is set to be one of the headlining acts for the festival. She recently released an emotional cover of “Nobody Told Me,” by John Lennon, as she broke the news of her album postponement.
American indie rock duo, diet cig, is also taking the virtual stage on Apr. 11, alongside Price. Earlier last month, the duo announced their newest album, Do You Wonder About Me?, set to release on May 1, through Frenchkiss Records.
Black Lips will also make a virtual appearance for the festival, showcasing their newest music from their 2020 record, Sing in a World That’s Falling Apart. The album features 12 brand-new songs, with over 35 minutes of pure indie music.
All of the proceeds from the live streaming event will go to the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund, providing money to help with medical expenses, food, lodging, clothing, and much more. The full lineup for the event is set to release on Apr. 9.
