Record labels and musicians have gathered together to bring us the biggest online concert event of 2020: BYE 2020!
Finally, some good news in 2020! (We all know how 2020 made us all re-evaluate everything, and I mean everything!)
Which is definitely not bad — but considering that we are in lockdown for almost 9 months — yeah you’ve read that right! 9 months! We all need something to bring us back to life! And boy did our friends in the music industry deliver!
#BYE2020: An Epic Night You Shouldn’t Miss!
The group behind #BYE2020 aims to bring together the entire Philippines through music by inspiring them to help cope better in the face of all the crazy out there. #BYE2020 is doing us all a favor by sending out a very powerful statement that not only recognizes the small but impactful triumphs of the music community despite a very challenging year. They also wanted to honor the collective efforts of everyone in holding each other up during the pandemic. Isn’t it exciting?
25 artists are set to join with virtual performances designed to make the experience as immersive and enjoyable as possible. (Finally!)
And, to be honest, we here at uDOu has had our fair share of online events but so far, we never had one as big as this! The lineup includes 2020’s biggest acts here and abroad, including Ben&Ben, Moira, Darren Espanto, SB19, Matthaios, The Itchyworms, Leanne & Naara, Maximillian, Peach Tree Rascals, Glaiza De Castro, Kean Cipriano, Lala Vizon, Zack Tabudlo, Keiko Necessario, Fern., Elha Nympha, Autotelic, Sud, Miguel Odron, VVS Collective, Ace Banzuelo, Paolo Sandejas, Earl Generao, FANA and TALA.
How real is that?
The Team behind BYE2020 is surely committed to mounting the first-of-its-kind year-ender party to usher in a brighter, better new year and turn this unprecedented moment in history into a collective call to seek a way out of darkness through unity, hope, and music.
“What BYE2020 delivers is a way for every Filipino to look back at all of the challenges we have faced, and enter 2021 a bit more hopeful,” the organizers explained. “Fortunately for us technology has allowed us to re-imagine what we can do for music entertainment and live events. And we are bringing to bear every learning, every talent, and every skill we have gained this 2020 and applying it to our event BYE2020.” – BYE2020 Team
The Event: What else can we look forward to?
BYE2020 is a six-hour continuous virtual event that will be streamed live on multiple platforms such as Facebook, YouTube, TikTok, and more on December 31, 2020.
Oh, but wait! There’s more! Apart from the amazing line-up! BYE2020 is also to recognize some of the most notable acts in the digital space with the primary goal to shine a bit more positivity for 2020.
