A new digital music event called Room Service has just been announced for the weekend of 24-26 April. Featuring a vast, musically-diverse line-up, Room Service will aim to offer a traditional festival experience through multiple “stages”, each featuring such artists as Yungblud, Trevor Daniel, Chromeo, Jeremy Zucker, Pink Sweat$, Gallant, Lolo Zouaï and Mt. Joy. Presented by Trap Nation and Chill Nation, all proceeds from the YouTube livestreaming event will go to charitable partners benefiting those affected by COVID-19, including Sweet Relief and Feeding America.

The digital festival joins a variety of unique opportunities that have emerged amid the global pandemic, while music fans and artists isolate at home. Room Service will feature over 100 acts, all staggered across simultaneous multi-channel “stages”. Aside from the artists mentioned above, fans can also look forward to performances and DJ sets by the likes of What So Not, Zeds Dead, Griz, Snails, Channel Tres, Borgore, RAC, A Boogie wit da Hoodie, Shallou and Big Gigantic.
In an official statement, Andre Benz, CEO & Founder of The Nations, whose YouTube channels will stream the festival, said that, “Room Service was created by a group of talented individuals with a collective philosophy, wanting to offer a positive environment in an uncertain time”.
The Nations, which is the largest multi-channel music network on YouTube, held its first digital festival, Digital Mirage, earlier this month. The electronic music event brought in an audience of over 4.1 million unique viewers, who collectively raised over $300,000 for Sweet Relief.
Benz added that he hoped Room Service would raise even more funds for both worthy causes. “Our primary goal is to raise money for those impacted through the recent cancellation of live events through our partnership with Sweet Relief… In addition, we have partnered with Feeding America who provides funding to food banks and is helping thousands in need throughout the country.”
Creighton Burke, President of The Nations, pointed out that, “This is the first time we have focused our entire network on a singular action, to provide a moment of relief through charity and experience. The generosity and support of like-minded artists and entertainment professionals is amazing…”
In addition to hours of live music and DJ sets from each of the artists’ homes, fans can also expect plenty of additional content, including artist interviews and studio sessions. Fundraising opportunities will also be scattered throughout the broadcast. Though admission, available on the Room Service website, begins at no cost, there are multiple donation levels available for every budget.
