Online Music Festival and Events Calendar: Until COVID-19 ends, artists are moving their events online, and we need a place to find them. Stay At Home Fest brings these events together into a massive ongoing music festival-style calendar, along with a curated “Main Stage Event.” We can slow the spread of COVID 19, support the artists we love, and fight the effects of isolation. Stay at home. But stay together.

Viral Music–Because Kindness Is Contagious


EVENTS LIST: https://www.facebook.com/groups/622864291902580/events/

This group is a marketplace to connect music lovers and independent musicians during these hard days of social isolation.  Let’s keep the music playing.

ARTISTS: Use this joint to post links to your merch store, online shows, Patreon, or online music lessons.  If you’ve had a gig cancelled, post the city and your Venmo/PayPal—many of us would love to pass along our ticket refunds to you.  There are suggested topics for each of these options. Let us know how we can help. We want to help.

MUSIC LOVERS: Go shopping here.  Think about the joy the music gives you and open your heart and your wallet.  Add your music loving friends to this group. If you are member of other music related Facebook groups, post a link to this group there.  Invite musicians to this group. Let’s make this effort go viral faster than COVID-19.


Living Room Lounge


EVENTS LIST: https://www.facebook.com/groups/LivingRoomLoungeLive/events/

Welcome to the Living Room Lounge. A virtual venue where musicians share their songs from their living rooms to yours. Find upcoming and currently live streams here and see which living room your friends are hanging out in. Living rooms have never been so LIVE!

Our focus is to support our artists friends who are suddenly without gigs. We want to build audiences that can carry from stream to stream to help them get the word out and gather the community.  So, we are exclusively posting only FaceBook Live streams from musicians homes rather than content from different platforms or rebroadcasts of old content.


Busking Down The House


Our mission here is to come together during this crisis and put our sources together to help the music industry while it is temporarily out of order. 

As we know many artists, venues, crews, photographers, vendors and more are out of work while we maintain a social distance to ensure the well-being of the population. That being said, we are here to give back to the individuals and groups who are affected by the shut down. Oh, hey, and to all of you who love to see shows: Here’s a new way to chase music. 

Our goals are to continue to support our artists and crews while continuing to bring you music. We will also be collecting for charities helping the international crisis. 




Stageit is an online venue where artists perform live, interactive, monetized shows for their fans directly from a laptop, offering fans unique experiences that are never archived


Third Man Public Access


Third Man Records will launch a series of daily live-streamed performances dubbed “Third Man Public Access” from the Blue Room at its Nashville headquarters every day at 12 p.m. CT, kicking off with a set from new age steel pedal player Luke Schneider. The shows will take place every day on Third Man’s YouTube page for the “foreseeable future” and feature some of the label’s “favorite artists sharing whatever is inspiring them during this impossibly dystopian moment in time.” Fans can use Venmo or Paypal to tip the entertainers.


Melissa Ethridge @ 3pm PST Every Day


Melissa has announced that every day at 6 p.m. ET/3 p.m. PT, she’ll do a Facebook live “singalong,” which will last about 15 minutes.  


Ben Gibbard (Death Cab for Cutie) @ 4pm PST Every Day

“I know you are all really freaked out right now,” the band’s lead singer, Ben Gibbard, wrote in a letter to fans. “I am too. And while I’m proud that we’re all doing the necessary things at the moment to help flatten the curve, I know it has left us all incredibly isolated.” To that end, he announced he’ll be playing music live from his home studio every day at 4 p.m. PT for the next few weeks on YouTube and Facebook. He may even have a few guests stop by “digitally.”
