PrideFest 2020 Livestream
On June 27th, Levitate Events, a concert production company that specializes in electronic and fusions of electronic music, will be co-presenting their second annual PrideFest to celebrate LGBTQ+ representation in music.
Last year, their first PrideFest in New York brought over 20 tri-state local LGBTQ+ electronic artists and 1,500 attendees through a 400-cap venue in Brooklyn throughout the 12-hour free experience. With artists like Kandy, Claud, Megan Vice, and many others, they were able to donate nearly $1,000 to organizations that support LGBTQ+ youth wellbeing.
With the current world situation, this year’s PrideFest is returning as a free live-streamed event on Saturday June 27th. As a digital experience, the team has taken a global approach by including LGBTQ+ artists from around the world, who create and perform music beyond EDM. The stream will exist exclusively on Twitch.
While the event will be free, attendees will have the opportunity to donate – 20% of all donations will go directly back to the performers, and the rest will be split equally between OutRight International’s COVID-19 Global LGBTIQ Emergency Fund, which provides emergency financial resources to organizations around the world who are assisting LGBTQ+ people, and Black Lives Matter, the leading organization of the Black Lives Matter movement.
The “2-stage” experience will go live on Twitch at 12:00 PM PT, featuring artists like Paige
, Ben Alessi
, Kaleena Zanders
, Joey Suarez
, Spencer Ludwig
, Gia Woods
, and many others. Please see the art asset below for all artists.
PrideFest is co-presented by teams around the world to maximize viewership and donations. PrideFest 2020 is powered by Play Out Apparel
, a queer-owned fashion brand that is sexuality, gender, race, size, age, and ability inclusive. Throughout the next few weeks, all orders using the code PRIDEFEST10 will receive 10% off, and the next 10% will be donated to OutRight & BLM through PrideFest’s donation portal.
