The two-day event will be free to watch, but donations from viewers are encouraged.

“The artists Consequence covers are the artists that are the heart and soul of independent venues,” NIVA board member Stephen Sternschein said in a press statement. “While we can’t wait to welcome them back, this fundraiser will help us hold on until it’s safe to be together again in real life.”

“Live music has always been the lifeblood of Consequence,” Alex Young, founder and publisher of Consequence also added. “So I can’t imagine a better way to celebrate the next stage of our existence than by gathering together some of our favorite artists from the last 15 years for a weekend of live music.”
