‘Save Our Stages’ Music Festival October 16-18 on YouTube

The Save Our Stages Fest — or SOS Fest for short — runs Friday (today) through Sunday, featuring fresh performances from more than 30 musical acts and will be live streamed on YouTube.

The virtual three day music festival is free to watch but donations are being requested from viewers and merchandise is available for purchase.

The National Independent Venue Association (NIVA) is partnering with YouTube for a 3-day virtual music festival to #SaveOurStages. #SOSFEST will live stream on NIVA’s official YouTube channel October 16-18 and will feature all new performances. This benefit event aims to generate significant awareness, advocacy and donations for the NIVA Emergency Relief Fund, directly supporting our most vulnerable venues experiencing catastrophic revenue loss.
