Fandiem & Bandsintown Launch “F-COVID” Fundraising Campaign
Fandiem and Bandsintown have partnered together for a new fundraising campaign, “F-COVID,” benefitting the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund.
The “F-COVID” campaign is the two company’s latest fundraising campaign in efforts to offset the financial impact and toll COVID-19 has taken on the music community. Those who donate to the campaign can enter to win trips to see musicians like Eric Church, signed merchandise from Nine Inch Nails, Imagine Dragons, Kesha, free concert tickets to see Metallica, Lord Huron, and dozens more. All proceeds will benefit the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund which directly provides financial assistance to all career musicians and music industry workers who are struggling while facing physical, mental, disability, or age-related problems.
“We are thrilled to partner with Bandsintown to inspire artist and fan communities to support urgent causes. With the industry feeling the effects of another surge, the time is right to launch “F-Covid” and support Sweet Relief Musicians Fund. This campaign is our collective effort to help musicians and music industry workers whose livelihoods continue to be impacted,” says Fandiem’s co-founder Jared Heiman in a press release.
“At Bandsintown, we believe that live music makes a better world by bringing fans together in one of the last tribal experiences. With Bandsintown For Good, we turn this love for live music into social impact,” adds Fabrice Sergent, managing partner of Bandsintown. “With Fandiem, we’re making it easier and more rewarding for fans to give back and deepen their connections with the artists they love. We’re proud to join forces, fundraise and align our ethos around the ways we can use technology in service to society.”
