Music Feeds, a two-day virtual festival with over 30 international artists, took place on 28-29 January. The festival was organised by UK retailer Co-op and Everybody Belongs Here, the promoter working to do good in the entertainment industry.
A total of £1M will go to FareShare to fight food poverty in the UK - helping to provide the equivalent of around 2.5 million meals - and will also help two music industry causes Help Musicians and Stagehand, who care for musicians and live production workers during times of crisis. In addition, all net profits from ticket sales will be split among the three charities.
Lindsay Boswell, FareShare CEO, said: "We are so grateful to Co-op for their incredible support, both throughout the Covid-19 crisis and all year round. As we battle through the third national lockdown, our staff and volunteers continue to work under challenging circumstances to get vital food supplies out to communities in need. This exciting virtual music festival was the perfect opportunity to bring fans across the world together - and all for a brilliant cause, which has never been more needed."
