Most of this year’s music festivals are sadly canceled and we’re all stuck inside because of coronavirus. Since we can’t go to festivals in real life, let’s go to the next best thing: a virtual fest!
The excellent clothing shop Gothicat is hosting an online music festival called Gothicat Festival #1. It will be streamed live on Facebook and Youtube this Sunday. Check here for your local time.
You can RSVP to the Facebook event page here.
The festival is an online charity event to fight Covid-19. They’ll be collecting donations during the event to support the United Nations Foundation.
I’m not really sure what to expect, but I’m looking forward to it. The event description says they’ll be streaming two hours of unreleased and never-before-seen live video clips from the best darkwave/goth acts from all around the world.
The lineup for this event is insanely good and includes some of my favorite synthpop and darkwave bands. Among those participating: Agent Side Grinder, Black Nail Cabaret, Empathy Test, Clan of Xymox, Hante., Lebanon Hanover, and many, many more great artists.
See you there!
