Foo Fighters, Dave Matthews, and more get together to 'Save Our Stages'

Smaller music venues 'are not only culturally important, they are emotionally important'

Some of the biggest acts from across the musical spectrum are coming together to bring epic live performances into fans’ homes as part of the Save Our Stages Festival, taking place October 16-18 on YouTube.

With the COVID-19 pandemic ravaging businesses and the lives of millions as we approach the eight month of lockdown measures meant to stop the virus’ spread, YouTube Music and the National Independent Venue Association (NIVA) have partnered to produce #SOSFEST with the goal of raising funds and awareness for independent venues forced to close their doors for an unforeseeable future.
