Earth Day: Artists Invited to Participate in 72-Hour Live Streaming Event


Earth Day is on April 22, and while people across the county will remain home, artists still have a chance to help celebrate the green holiday.

Earth Day Live will be held over 72 hours from April 22 - 24 and will be free to view in an online streaming event, reports Pollstar.

To commemorate the holiday's 50th anniversary, organizers have launched a call for artists to participate in a livestream event honoring the occasion.

This year’s holiday was going to be celebrated with a concert on the National Mall in Washington, DC. But given the stay-at-home orders announced throughout the country amid the coronavirus pandemic, a lineup was never announced for this year’s planned festivities.

Earth Day has long been an occasion for large gatherings and music events since 1990.

That year, a rally was held at the Capitol in DC and a concert was held at Merriweather Post Pavilion. The event included performances and appearances by from Michael Stipe and Peter Buck, 10,000 Maniacs, Ziggy Marley and Billy Bragg.
