Google hosting multi-site, multi-cause GOODFest music event


This past week GOOD, a “global media brand and social impact company” announced a series of live and livestreamed music events called GOODFest intended to celebrate all things positive in the world and raise funds for some different causes. Google is joining forces with GOOD to sponsor the event via their Pixel smartphone devices. 

The GOODFest events will be taking place in five different cities in the U.S. over five different dates. Fans are being invited to attend both in person or via a live stream of each event. The five different events will also each have their own particular focus including generosity, humanity, earth, equality and love.

The first one takes place this coming week on November 29th in New York City at BAM Cafe. The headline act includes Glass Animals with supporting acts by Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Madame Gandhi, and Shilpa Ray. If you are in the area, the event will be held from 7:00 – 11:00 pm and tickets can be snagged for $39 each.

The next event will be held on December 9th in New Orleans at the Music Box where Gogol Bordello will headline the event focused on Humanity. Joining in on the action that night will be Nick Zinner of Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Google has not yet released details or options for buying tickets to the event.

Up next on December 12th in Seattle at Neumo’s will be D.R.A.M. with Hollis Wong-Wear playing for Earth. Details and dates for events in San Francisco, focused on Equality and in Los Angeles focusing on Love have not yet been announced.
