With all the COVID-19 madness out there a ton of people are out of work until things can open back up…….and that includes the concert industry. While as of this posting (5/7/2020) Aftershock 2020 is still on, but almost all of the other DWP festivals had to be cancelled, meaning a lot of contractors have been SOL quite frankly.
That’s why it’s so cool to see the creation of this campaign from the DWP folks to try and help out. Check out the release below!
DANNY WIMMER PRESENTS "Family" Merch Campaign
DANNY WIMMER PRESENTS FAMILY
It takes a village to put on the biggest rock festivals in the United States and we are beyond thankful for the DWP Family. Times are incredibly tough. The concert industry was the first to be affected and will be the last to reopen, which is why the Danny Wimmer Presents Family (DWPF) merch line was created. To give back to the team of contractors that work tirelessly to create the best experience for the fans. Most of them are out of work, and with nearly all of the DWP 2020 portfolio cancelled, as well as other live events currently on hiatus, they don’t know when they will work again. All profits from the sales of the DWPF merchandise will directly benefit them, so that they can come back and create memories again for you, the best fans in the world!
They’ve partnered with Sweet Relief, a 501c3 to handle the donation process and manage the recipients. The Sweet Relief Covid-19 fund is 100% fee free, all proceeds and donations are being given back to the music community.
