Description

One for Beirut Canada concert will showcase Canadian independent artists, and some independent Lebanese artists. The livelihood of the artists we’re helping depended on performing in Beirut bars, cafés and intimate venues. The large majority of them used to perform in Gemmayze, Mar Mikhael, Karantina, Downtown Beirut, Sodeco and Geitawi; the very neighborhoods that have suffered the most severe destruction from the blast.

Funds raised from the benefit will be distributed between Independent solo artists, bands and musicians in Beirut, with a 30 - 40 - 30 split between these groups. Part of our mission in fundraising is to gather funds for groups that might fall through the cracks in other relief efforts in Lebanon such as at-risk artists, artists in the LGBTQ community, and migrant worker artists. It will be a 3-hour show and the date is on October 11, 2020.
