Get Ready for Digital Mirage 2.0
A virtual festival benefiting Sweet Musicians Relief Fund, with A-Trak, Boys Noize, Chromeo, ZHU, and more.
Although some cities have begun to reopen, chances are we still have sometime before we get to party at a live festival. It’s a bummer, but turns out virtual festivals have really gained traction during this lockdown—and we love them. Following the success of the first Digital Mirage Festival, Los Angeles based independent electronic music brands Proximity and Brownies & Lemonade announced their return to the virtual festival community with Digital Mirage 2, scheduled to take place June 5-7, 2020.
Back in April, Digital Mirage made its mark as one of the first major live-streamed music festivals, drawing in over one million attendees across the weekend. In a span of three days the virtual event raised over $300,000 to benefit Sweet Musicians Relief Fund, a charity committed to supporting musicians and music industry professionals affected by COVID-19. The virtual festival included fifty performances from artists like Alison Wonderland, SOFI TUKKER, Valentino Khan, TOKiMONSTA, Louis the Child, Chet Porter, Mija, Ghastly, Keys N Krates and more.
For the upcoming June event, streamers that tune in can expect another loaded lineup of big and upcoming names in the electronic music industry. Performances will include a live loop set from turntablist extraordinaire A Trak, bass legend Baauer, hard-edged label boss Boys Noize, electro-pop selector Elohim, saxophone wielding GRiZ and a Redux set from renowned house veteran Kaskade. Further streams will be provided by leading Aussie export and Beats1 broadcaster Anna Lunoe, GUD VIBRATIONS leader NGHTMRE, a unique Concertgebouw Set from Oliver Heldens, pristine future bass from San Holo, melodic mastery by SG Lewis, genre blending by Two Feet, a singular set from electronic powerhouse ZHU, and dramatic alt-pop from breakout star EVAN GIIA amongst many others.
With a history of building dedicated internet-based communities, Proximity, Brownies & Lemonade and Keel represent the next wave in music entrepreneurs aimed to foster the future of the global music industry. All proceeds will be donated to Plus1’s Fund for COVID-19 relief and artists performing the festival. The festival, completely free of charge, generates funds through participant donations.
