Music For A Cause (MFAC), Singapore's one and only altruistic music festival that encourages giving and volunteerism through music is returning for its fifth and final edition on 28 & 29 May 2020. In view of the new normal for Singaporeans today, the festival will go digital for the first time on Facebook Live in two sessions: 4pm – 6.15pm and 7pm – 9.15pm on both days. Virtual festival-goers will get to enjoy intimate performances from some of Singapore's top music talents, as well as interact and live chat with their favourite music acts through the virtual meet and greets.
Music For A Cause 2020 will see the return of 12 MFAC alumni, including Jack and Rai, MICappella, 53A, SHYE and Charlie Lim. They will be coming together to help raise funds to support local musicians, hawkers and our frontline workers.
Organised by Love Action Project and powered by National Youth Council Singapore, MFAC 2020 will be partnering with SGMUSO and Hawkers United to fundraise and launch the following activities:
1. #FundAGig (https://give.asia/fundagig)
To support local musicians whose livelihoods are disrupted by Covid-19, the #FundAGig campaign aims to support artistes by encouraging them to host livestream gigs and they will be remunerated with a stipend of SGD100 – 300 per livestream gig. Artistes can contact SGMUSO directly to apply for gig funding.
2. #FundAHawker (https://give.asia/fundahawker)
In partnership with Hawkers United, the #FundAHawker campaign supports five local hawkers through the purchase of their food and drinks for distribution to our frontline workers.
Food and drinks purchased through the #FundAHawker campaign will be distributed to our frontliners including healthcare workers, delivery personnel, F&B service providers and social distancing ambassadors etc, to thank them for their hard work in supporting Singaporeans through these challenging times.
Join us for the final edition of Music For A Cause with two great evenings of local music and donate generously to #FundAGig and #FundAHawker. The virtual music festival will be happening from 4pm – 6.15pm and 7pm – 9.15pm on both days on Music For A Cause Facebook Live.
