Upcoming Virtual Concert Schedule

With music festivals being canceled and venues closed during the coronavirus outbreak, fans are yearning for some live music while they self-quarantine. Thankfully, many artists are turning to the internet to continue to reach their fans. KEXP is collecting a calendar of upcoming live streaming video concerts. We encourage viewers to utilize any digital tip jars or links to purchase music and merchandise, as many of these performers are losing income by not being able to tour. Please note: times and dates are subject to change.

A note from Björk:

dear friends

i would like to invite you to some concerts

to honour folks who got hit hardest in the coronavirus and the black lives matter movement

and to honour how many icelandic musicians i have worked with through the years

i recorded almost all of my albums with local musicians :

homogenic with an icelandic string octet medulla with schola cantorum ( an icelandic mixed choir ) volta with 10 brass girls i found all over the island and then later they formed wonderbrass biophilia with langholt´s church girl choir graduale nobili vulnicura with a 15 piece string ensemble utopia with 12 female fluteplayers who later formed the flute septet viibra cornucopia with hamrahlíð´s choir conducted by þorgerður ingólfsdóttir all these albums where then performed all around the planet with these musicians together they are over hundred people !!

and we are going to celebrate that we are all healthily exiting quarantine together by playing concerts in harpa music hall for 3 weekends of august

my input into the feminist fight is to brag about that almost all of those arrangements are by me unfortunately this is something that is almost always ignored when women are arrangers

the concerts will be in the afternoons and will also be streamed live online, where there will be an option to donate to the icelandic women's shelter - which supports women of all origin in iceland

for those attending in person, after the concert we will be offering food to raise money in support of this charity

the concerts will be "unplugged" or acoustic and performed without beats and electronics the concerts will be performed with the icelandic symphony orchestra and guests

i feel we are going through extraordinary times horrifying but also an opportunity to truly change it is demanded of us that we finally confront all racism that we learn that lives are more important that profit and look inside us and finecomb out all our hidden prejudices and privileges

let´s all humbly learn together


humongous love
