With pandemic public health restrictions in place prohibiting live concerts with an in-person audience, Contact Winter Music Festival has come up with something cool and novel. On Feb. 6, at 7 p.m. PT, local dance/EDM acts will perform on the 204-foot-high rooftop of Vancouver's BC Place to support the Greater Vancouver Food Bank, which assists about 8500 individuals and families a month.
Produced by Blueprint, Live Nation Canada, Monstercat, and BC Place, fans worldwide will be able access the free-to-stream broadcast on Monstercat’s Twitch channel. Performing artists include Vanic, Tails B2B Juelz, Nostalgix, and Poni. And while the show is free to watch, specially designed Contact hoodies for $55 will be available for purchase, with a portion of the proceeds going to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank. Merchandise is available at contact-festival.com and store.thisisblueprint.com. – Full read on Samaritanmag.com.
