Music performers have had to put their careers on hold for more than a year since mass gatherings have been restricted and entertainment venues are closed. In order to gain some income, more than 700 artists have teamed up to perform an online concert, “Open Hat Festival”, under the theme #LetTheMusicLive on the YouTube Channel: Open Hat Festival.
This online performance runs from 6pm to midnight every day until Aug 1. If viewers miss any performances, they can replay it the next day on the Open Hat Festival channel.
Some big names from the long line-up include ETC, F.Hero, Getsunova, Ink Waruntorn, Klear, Penguin Villa, The Parkinson, Polycat, Srirajah Rockers and Slot Machine.
After the first show on Monday that featured Anna, Nuttamon “Tippsy” Thongchiew, He Men Crown and Tibet, GMM Grammy executive Yutthana Boonaom posted lots of positive feedback from excited fans.
To support artists, viewers can donate directly to an account number of their favourites, which will be on screen during performances. If a performer does not want donations, viewers can still donate to a mutual account, Kasikornbank a/c 102-888-1076, and the money will go to other performers impacted by the pandemic.
