“Live From Out There” is an online music & content series, created during the COVID-19 outbreak, that generates a new & meaningful revenue stream for musicians and crew, while also raising money for the greater music community through Sweet Relief’s COVID-19 Fund.
Sweet Relief is providing support to struggling artists during the COVID-19 outbreak. Working with “Live From Out There” will allow larger artists the opportunity to provide much needed financial assistance to those musicians who have lost all sources of income due to restrictions on public gatherings. Revenue generated by “Live From Out There” is shared by the performing artist and Sweet Relief to benefit their COVID-19 fund.
In the first 2 weeks of the program:
“Live From Out There — a subscription-based digital music festival — didn’t have superstars on the bill for its first weekend near the end of March. There were no special discount codes, no merchandise bundles, no particular gimmicks to draw attendees in. It still raked in $100,000 in one weekend” - Rolling Stone
“‘Live From Out There’ Livestream, Which Raised $100,000 for Coronavirus Relief, Continues This Weekend” - Variety
“As the live music business remains in indefinite halt due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Live From Out There’s success is the latest in a growing trend of promising live streaming opportunities as much of the U.S. is locked in their houses — the definition of a captive audience” - Rolling Stone
“Live From Out There was one of the first cause-oriented streams to launch. The 6-week digital series offering more than 100 hours of live sets” - Grit Daily
