The full-day virtual music marathon will predominantly feature new “live” performances captured during the ongoing lockdown, with a few gems from the archives sprinkled in. The new content will be created by the artists in a variety of ways, from socially distant studio sessions to remote video collaborations. While each band and artist on the bill will take their own, unique approach for their Quarantine Comes Alive content, the goal is the same across the board: To create something new and special for fans everywhere to enjoy—together—while they remain physically distant for the foreseeable future.

Modeled after Brooklyn Comes Alive and Denver Comes Alive, Quarantine Comes Alive was conceived as a way to celebrate and support musicians, provide fans with unique musical experiences from the comfort of their couches, and raise money for comprehensive COVID-19 relief during this time of uncertainty. All funds raised from the donation-based event will be split evenly between the artists on the bill and the PLUS1 COVID-19 Relief Fund.

As the music industry began to experience the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, PLUS1 launched its PLUS1 COVID-19 Relief Fund to coordinate musicians’ efforts to support those in our community most at risk from the pandemic. Working directly with leading non-profit organizations like Sweet Relief, MusiCares, Center for Disaster Philanthropy, World Central Kitchen, Partners In Health, Trans Lifeline, and Backline, the PLUS1 COVID-19 Relief Fund’s goal is to provide aid where it’s needed most.

Ari Fink of SiriusXM JamOnPhish Radio, and Dave Matthews Band Radio will serve as the host of the event, which will also include exclusive set break interviews with artists from across the lineup as well as the minds behind Quarantine Comes Alive’s various non-profit partners.

The full bands and individual artists that comprise the Quarantine Comes Alive lineup span a vast stylistic spectrum, from bluegrass to singer-songwriters, jam bands to indie rock, electronic music to funk, soul to Americana and more. Just like any good festival, Quarantine Comes Alive has something for everyone—and, in all likelihood, something new and surprising for you.

In partnership with D’Angelico Guitars and Propeller, Quarantine Comes Alive will give away a brand new D’Angelico Premier Bedford guitar to one lucky viewer. For more information on how to enter the guitar giveaway contest and boost your chances of winning, head here.

Quarantine Comes Alive will also revive an old “Comes Alive” tradition: baseball cards! You may have seen Quarantine Comes Alive artist baseball cards floating around social media. This time around, the fans can get their own cards, too. To get your personalized Quarantine Comes Alive baseball card gift, donate $100 or more here and forward your receipt to along with your full name and a photo of yourself. You can also scroll down to check out the full gallery of Quarantine Comes Alive artist baseball cards.

Of course, half the fun of a music festival is the audience experience, the chance to mingle with your fellow revelers. Quarantine Comes Alive has that aspect covered, too—alongside the main Quarantine Comes Alive stream, we’ll be hosting Zoom dance parties all day. Get dressed up, deck out your living room, and show the rest of the QCA “crowd” how your quaranteam comes alive! Zoom in HERE.

A few Zoom dance party guidelines:

-The Zoom party does not have its own video player. We recommend using separate devices for the Zoom and the main Quarantine Comes Alive stream.
-Keep your mic muted at all times so everyone can hear the show. We encourage you to take advantage of the Zoom chat feature to socialize.
-Nudity, illegal drugs, and other illicit activities are not allowed on camera in the Zoom room. Have fun, but let’s keep this PG-13.
-A moderator will be hanging in the Zoom room throughout the day. Be nice and follow the rules or you’ll get the boot.
-Enjoy yourselves! It’s a party. 

Fans are encouraged to head to and donate to the cause. Fans can also donate via the widget below:
