Social isolation might be the new normal, but that doesn't mean you can't have a good time. With so many people around the globe sheltering in place because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the one constant has been the unifying power of music. From DJs turning social media into late-night lounges to producers and songwriters facing off against each other in live showdowns, people have been connecting through music while on quarantine.
The trend continues this weekend thanks to entertainment platform Triller with the launch of TrillerFest. The three-day digital music festival, which kicks off today (Friday, April 10th at 4pm EST), is designed to entertain fans after the cancellation of hundreds of concerts and tours due to COVID-19. Comedian and SNL star Jay Pharoah will host the multi-day event that’s slated to feature more than 100 top artists, including Migos, Pitbull, Wyclef Jean, Snoop Dogg, Marshmello, and Don Diablo, among others, all with the intention of raising money for individuals who have been affected by coronavirus. All funds raised over the 72-hour period will be donated to the Recording Academy’s #MusiCares coronavirus initiative and No Kid Hungry.
