MUSIC IS NOT CANCELLED! WARNER MUSIC GROUP ARTISTS AND SONGWRITERS JOIN TOGETHER FOR THE FIRST-EVER PLAYON FEST, A VIRTUAL MUSIC FESTIVAL SUPPORTING THE COVID-19 SOLIDARITY RESPONSE FUND FOR THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION.

 

Warner Music Group today announced the first-of-its-kind virtual music festival, PlayOn Fest supporting the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization (WHO), powered by the UN Foundation. As part of a spectacular three-day live streaming event, PlayOn Fest promises to bring energy and high production values from world class stages (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 music fans hungry for communal live experiences. Warner Music Group labels have opened up their vaults to relive epic show-stopping performances for this one-time-only live viewing event.

Featuring: Bruno Mars, Coldplay, Green Day & many, many more!

Kicked off by LL COOL J this Friday at noon ET, PlayOn Fest will stream live on April 24-26, for 72 hours straight exclusively via Songkick’s YouTube channel HERE. Warner Music Group has also launched a pre-sale of exclusive PlayOn Fest merch (see HERE), with all proceeds going to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for WHO. 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 development of a vaccine and treatments for all who need them.

 

Music fans across the world will have access to legendary never-before-released on YouTube performances, including sets from artists like:

  • Coldplay (taken from the band’s São Paulo, Brazil show during their A Head Full Of Dreams Tour in 2017, which became the third biggest tour of all time).
  • Bruno Mars (24K Magic Live at the Apollo – Mars’ first primetime special that was recorded from the stage of the legendary Harlem theater in 2017).
  • Panic! At The Disco (shot during their sold-out arena tour at the famed O2 Arena in London in 2019).
  • Ed Sheeran (taking his stadium show to the intimate Austin City Limits stage for a special performance on the iconic PBS series in 2017).
  • KORN (a groundbreaking performance filmed inside of a living art installation celebrating the release of their 2019 album The Nothing).
  • The Flaming Lips from Australia’s iconic Sydney Opera House in 2019, where they celebrated the 20th anniversary of their monumental album, The Soft Bulletin.
  • Green Day’s set from MTV’s World Stage Seville during the 2019 EMAs.
  • Weezer’s 2019 nostalgia-filled third Coachella performance.
