The newly launched live streamed music festival will be taking place for two hours between 8.30pm – 10.30pm EST on selected Saturdays throughout May, including the 2nd, 9th, 16th and 23rd. The final show date is Sunday 25th May and is scheduled to last for eight hours from 1pm – 9pm EST.

It is hoped the virtual event will raise funds for the Red Cross in America and Canada as both organizations have been working hard to support patients during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many people around the world have been affected by the virus, whether through sickness, having events cancelled, or work-related issues.

The events will be hosted by MC Celeigh Cardinal, a radio host at CKUA and will feature various artists from around the world. This includes Eric Bibb, Martha L Healy, Joe Nolan, Lucette, and Ann Vriend. New acts are being added to the line-up each day.

Bigger Than Borders aims to fundraise while also keeping music culture alive. The organizers behind the festival acknowledge that many events, concerts, and outdoor activities have been cancelled as a result of the global pandemic. Online and virtual events are the only way for people to figuratively cross borders right now, which is reflected in the name of the event.

Music is a great way to entertain people and can bring the community together, which is why a virtual, online event has been created. The festival hopes to connect people from the comfort of their own homes in line with government social distancing guidelines.

A company spokesperson said: “Music has the ability to bring people together, regardless of where they are in the world or their current situation. It has the ability to transport people to a happier time.”

“In the current climate, people are missing out on events, festivals, and concerts. We’re hoping our live streamed Bigger Than Borders festival will help people to feel connected to each other and provide a moment of escapism,” they added.
