Ever since we put shows on pause a few weeks ago, we’ve been searching for the best ways we can support artists during this uncertain time. The Sofar artist community is home to thousands of independent artists around the world who are deeply involved with their local music scenes and rely heavily on income from live performance. Without being able to play shows, these artists are facing an unprecedented time of disruption and uncertainty.
Knowing this, it’s more important than ever to support the artists and acts we love, so we’ve created a space for artists to continue connecting with global audiences. Today, we’re proud to launch (cue drum roll) Keep Listening — an online listening room supporting artists around the world through live shows broadcasted from their living room to yours.
The thrill of a Sofar show is back! Discover all new music every week and travel across time zones to hear Sofar artists across the globe — all from the comfort of your living room. See the upcoming schedule below and visit the listening room
All shows are free, but you can show your support for artists by donating directly to the live stream performer or to the Sofar Sounds Global Artist Fund, benefiting Sofar artists that rely the most on our shows for live performance income.
While human contact may be on hold for now, connection is more important than ever. In Sofar’s listening room, you can meet music lovers around the world through our online chat, text your group chat to virtually attend the same show with your friends, and get to know all new artists in your city and across the globe.
