In the past few weeks, artists have taken to different social platforms for livestreamed performances, candid Q&As, and intimate talk-show chats, letting fans into their worlds during a time of uncertainty. This weekend, everything levels up.
On Saturday (March 28), you can catch some of the biggest musicians and celebrities around the globe on a 12-hour livestream and help people impacted by the coronavirus pandemic at the same time. It sounds like the perfect way to spend a socially isolated Saturday, right?
Twitch Stream Aid, a fundraising event co-presented with Amazon Music, runs from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. PST, and all the proceeds go to the World Health Organization. Artists who'll be streaming include The 1975, BTS, Charli XCX, Charlie Puth, Camila Cabello, Childish Gambino, The Chainsmokers, Lauv, Diplo, Brendon Urie, Blink-182, Lil Yachty, Zedd, and more.
The breakdown is simple: Along with set hourlong blocks of performances, the stream will also showcase gaming competitions of Fortnite, Uno, and more. The best part is that you can tune in from the comfort of your couch.
