With the cancellations of so many large scale entertainment events due to COVID-19, the digital music festival Room Service aims to fill the void with its music festival April 24-26. 

It’ll feature performances by Yungblud, Channel Tres, Pink Sweat$, Chromeo, Zeds Dead, Borgore, A Boogie wit da Hoodie, Gallant, Griz, Mt. Joy, Trevor Daniel, RAC, Jeremy Zucker, Shallou and more. 

Proceeds from the event go directly to charitable partners benefiting those affected by COVID-19, including Sweet Relief and Feeding America. Earlier this month, in partnership with the YouTube channel Proximity, the Nations launched its first festival, Digital Mirage drawing 4.1 million unique viewers and raising more than $300,000 for Sweet Relief. 

Mirroring the traditional festival experience, Room Service will feature simultaneous multi-channels as “stages” with mixed genres across The Nations’ YouTube channels, including their biggest Trap Nation and Chill Nation. With a combined audience of over 60 million across all digital platforms, the Nations is the largest, fastest-growing music, multi-channel network on YouTube with over 200 million monthly views. 

 “Room Service was created by a group of talented individuals with a collective philosophy, wanting to offer a positive environment in an uncertain time,” says Andre Benz, CEO & Founder of The Nations, in a press release. “Our primary goal is to raise money for those impacted through the recent cancellation of live events through our partnership with Sweet Relief. This would include everyone from small club staff to musicians & support crews unable to tour and are directly impacted by COVID-19. In addition, we have partnered with Feeding America who provides funding to food banks and is helping thousands in need throughout the country. Our followers and fans made an incredible impact with their generous actions during our recent Digital Mirage festival. Reaching millions of music fans, we hope to see the upcoming Room Service Music Festival grow that impact exponentially. We believe strongly that it is our duty to do good in the world.” 

“This is the first time we have focused our entire network on a singular action, to provide a moment of relief through charity and experience,” says Creighton Burke, President of the Nations. “The generosity and support of like-minded artists and entertainment professionals is amazing as we will have presented six days of live streaming to millions and millions of global music fans.”

Live programming, studio sessions, artist interviews and fundraising opportunities will be scattered throughout the weekend of Room Service, all broadcast remotely from the homes of artists around the world.
