YouTube Music reveals the full line up for #SOSFEST this weekend!

San Diego's Jason Mraz will kick off the Saturday line-up with a performance streamed from The Belly Up. For more artists and venues, check the day-by-day lineup here.

The three-day virtual festival in partnership with NIVA will include performances from 35 artists recorded live from more than 25 of the most storied independent concert venues across the United States, all in support of NIVA’s Save Our Stages advocacy and relief efforts for members of the independent music, comedy and arts community. You can download a photo of the schedule here.

#SOSFEST will help shape a path forward for independent venues, touring artists and the live concert industry. Through YouTube’s sophisticated global platform, innovation in digital fundraising, and use of the most modern safety protocols and production tools for live performance to date, lasting changes can be made to preserve our nation’s independent venue infrastructure.

Fans can donate directly to the NIVA Emergency Relief Fund, which benefits independent venues in peril, on NIVA’s Official YouTube Channel now.

Dates and times of events are subject to change without notice. Always check the event organizer's website for the most updated schedule before attending.
