News Release: Rochester Livestream Music Festival this Friday April 3rd to Sunday April 5th
>>Spring has finally begun to appear in the Rochester area, which is a usual call for gatherings in the community, but unfortunately, until further notice, all public events have been cancelled. With these cancellations comes the stark reality that no one is allowed to attend or host any publicly held music performances for the foreseeable future. Due to universal calls of social distancing in order to slow the spread of COVID-19, events spanning all the way to May, such as the annual Lilac Festival, have been postponed or cancelled in the Monroe County area. Fortunately, Rochester musicians and businesses have come together and found a way to continue our tradition of celebrating live music! Three Heads Brewing, Floated Magazine, Greenstream, Flour City Station, Lovin’ Cup, and Abilene Bar and Lounge are all proud to sponsor a livestreaming music event taking place this Friday April 3rd through Sunday April 5th featuring over 40 talented and unique musicians from the Rochester area. They will be performing directly from their own homes on a livestream that you also can watch directly from the safety of your home.
Artists performing include Eli Flynn from legendary reggae act Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad, harp playing sensation Mikaela Davis, soul artist Danielle Ponder, and Sam Snyder from psychedelic rockers Maybird, among countless others! There will be live music going on nonstop all day for nearly 12 hours all weekend. Tune in at any time to unwind, dance in your living room or bedroom, discover new artists, listen to some of your favorites, and forget about the outside world for a little bit. Join us and remind yourself there are countless people going through the same complex emotions and we need each other now more than ever to get by. Livestreams have become a crucial component to encouraging optimism and unity through these unprecedented tough times, notably in the music community. We hope you can join us this weekend and can view the complete lineup and set times below.
