Set Break (Livestream to Support Mental Health in the Music Industry)
|Apr 10, 2021|
*UPDATE* David is scheduled to perform in the 9:00 PM ET hour
On April 10th (2PM ET), Backline will host “Set Break”, their first-ever livestream fundraiser on The Relix Channel, exclusively on Twitch—featuring live performances from all over the world, public service announcements from music industry professionals, and immersive wellness experiences.
During the event, the music industry will come together to honor the experiences of music industry professionals, break the stigma around mental health in the community, and raise money to expand Backline’s programs and services in a time when they are critical for so many.
The genre-spanning lineup includes Alanis Morissette, Leon Bridges, Dawes, Black Pumas, Sara Bareilles, Bob Weir & Wolf Bros, Ben Folds, Oteil Burbridge, Los Lobos, Michael Franti, K. Flay, Galactic, Dawes, American Authors, Larkin Poe, Deer Tick, DJ Millie, David Cook, and a chorus of voices calling out for increased access to mental health and wellness support services for the music industry.
Set Break is a FREE event, but there will be many opportunities to donate and support the mental health of the music industry. In addition to benefiting Backline, a portion of the proceeds will benefit Crew Nation, Live Nation’s global relief fund for live music crews, and Sweet Relief’s Mental Health Fund, which provides financial assistance to music industry workers seeking therapy and other forms of mental health care, who may otherwise be struggling to make ends meet.
