FiLo Festival
JULY 10, 2021

Before the lights
go down,

somebody washes the glasses…
somebody stocks the bar…
somebody gets the box office ready…
somebody drives the busses and trucks…
somebody loads in and out the gear…
somebody sets up and breaks down the stage…
somebody runs the show…
somebody makes sure everybody is safe…
somebody cleans up after everyone is gone…
somebody pays those bodies for a job well done…
somebody could be you… Let's rock together and help!

MUCH MORE
THAN MUSIC

Without somebody, there is no show.
For a year, somebody has NOT been able to do their job.
For a year, somebody has NOT been paid.

Somebody needs our help!
Let’s take care of somebody!

This  event will be an opportunity for the music industry to take care of the personnel that have been taking care of the artists for decades.
FOR THE INDUSTRY, BY THE INDUSTRY
Everyone involved in this show has worked on the road.  Travelling from city to city to ensure a smooth live performance for the fans and the artists.  This is a tribute to live music.  The memories, the thrill, the excitement, and the people who dedicate their lives to making it happen.
HOSTS & FORMAT
TAKING CARE OF
THE CREW
100% of the Net Proceeds from this show will be granted to the independent contractors and people that work on demand to bring live entertainment to life.  From the guitar tech to the ticket takers, these people have been out of work for over a year and let’s show them how much we appreciate their work and dedication.
THE FUND
THE ARTISTS
INVOLVED
Our roster of artists came together to show support and love to the crew members that bring the stage to life. We have artists from an assortment of genres to showcase live music for what it is: a great time.  While there will be some live recording and specially recorded content for this show, our event will cover a journey into what is live music, sharing what it is like to be on the road.

A STIMULUS FOR THE CREWS

THE FUND

We are raising funds and creating a private stimulus to help as many industry personnel in need as possible.  100% of all net proceeds will go to the displaced road crews and support staff of musicians.
CREWS
The first in and last out: the crews show up early in the morning and don’t go home until late at night.  Making sure the show is safe, on point, and sounding amazing for the fans...is what these crews work 12 hour+ days to achieve.  With live music shut down, many have faced hard circumstances that we are coming in to help!
VENUES
Managing a venue can be a struggle...during COVID we all struggled.  Supporting the iconic venues that add to the magic of hearing your favorite music live is part of the goal.  Other venues that have fared the storm well are donating their time and space to making this event a success.
ARTISTS
Bands and Artists depend on the support of various artists to make a show be the best it can be:  dancers, back-up musicians, a special instrument to amplify your favorite song.  These amazing individuals have dedicated their life to perfecting their art, and while COVID has them on the side lines, we want to come in a support for a brighter future.

THANK YOU TO OUR
PARTNERS AND SPONSORS
We have partnered with Sweet Relief to modify their established grant application process to cover those music industry contract workers out of work due to the pandemic. We will cover crews that go on the road with bands and those that keep the clubs running around the country. In 1994 Sweet Relief Musicians Fund was incorporated as a 501C3 nonprofit charity and has since been offering vital assistance to professional musical artists in need. Many prominent musicians, professionals and music fans have contributed enthusiastically to Sweet Relief. Benefits have been performed in venues from Miami to Seattle, with performances donated by many established and emerging artists. Nightclubs, concert halls, radio stations, record labels, restaurants, clothing and shoe companies, music retailers, athletes, actors, corporations, foundations and music fans have all participated with Sweet Relief to assist struggling musicians.
Formed in mid-April 2020, just three weeks into the pandemic’s shutdown, NIVA now consists of more than 3,000 venues, promoters, and festivals representing every state, Washington, D.C., and Guam. With the support of its members and their fans, the organization successfully launched a nationwide movement to #SaveOurStages, pulling together voices big and small to save independent venues and promoters on the brink of collapse due to COVID-19 shutdowns. Legislation was the driving focus, but there has been so much more.
