Following the postponement of Pigeons Playing Ping Pong‘s annual Domefest, the Baltimore-based funk-jam quartet has announced a special live stream festival event, Homefest – A Virtual Flock Party, set to take place on June 11th–13th.
The uniquely curated, three-night digital festival will include five live sets by Pigeons Playing Ping Pong in addition to performances by other artists that have yet to be announced. In addition to the live-streamed performances, fans will have access to a full schedule of community-focused virtual events, workshops, and other exclusive content.
As Pigeons Playing Ping Pong frontman Greg Ormont notes in a press release, “Instead of sulking about the state of live events, we’ve been working around the clock to come up with new ways to stay connected with the people we love. Homefest aims to provide fans with a more personal glimpse of the band, including intimate livestream performances, virtual hangouts and interactive content. We’re excited to see The Flock reunited in full force, there’s no place like home!”
Early Bird streaming passes for Homefest are now on sale here. Fans can also purchase limited-edition Homefest merch as well as “High Flyer Packages” and special VIP perks like a virtual happy hour with the band, signed setlists, and more. For more information, head here.
This is far from the first foray into live-streamed shows for Pigeons Playing Ping Pong during the ongoing live event hiatus. As one of the core acts of 11E1even Group‘s Live From Out There series, they helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for Sweet Relief‘s COVID-19 Relief Fund.
The Homefest announcement comes along with 11E1even Group’s announcement of similar virtual events Goose, Twiddle, and more as part of their Live From Out There: Virtual Summer Tour Series. For full information on all the Virtual Summer Tour series, head here.
