Since the social distancing policies that resulted from the COVID-19 crisis have put many a LIVE concert to be delayed, alongside several concert tours, Move Forward Music has released a statement announcing a collaboration with the streaming service Twitch to temporarily replace live performance concerts.
Alex Damashek, founder of Move Forward Music, was quoted as saying:
“We’ve always been about building community around emerging soul and hip-hop culture, and giving voice to progressive artists. While nothing can replace the experience of an in-person concert, we see an opportunity with Twitch to help artists and fans discover each other in 2020, and once we can finally start packing folks into clubs again, we will be able to offer a richer, more in depth concert experience with behind-the-scenes footage, interactive artist Q&A’s, podcasts, and more.”
The collaboration will be considered an online music festival, set for October 17th and 18th. It will showcase the talents of Kenny Mason, Kari Faux, Umi, Kyle Dion, Marlon Craft and many others. The festival will also feature panel discussions, alongside a LIVE interview with Alchemist and Just Blaze.
Earlier on, the company Rolling Loud also released a statement on THEIR collaboration with Twitch to release a similar Music Festival.
