Slay At Home, a virtual music festival, is honoring its one-year anniversary with its grand finale.
The show, which is organized by Frank Godla of Metal Injection, will take place this Friday and Saturday (June 18 and 19) with music starting at 3 p.m. EST both days. Panel discussions will take place before the live music takes over.
The free virtual event will benefit Musicares, The Iggy Fund, Cancer Research Institute and National Alliance On Mental Illness. Over the past year, Slay at Home has raised more than $200,000 in donations for various charities.
“I started Slay At Home early in the pandemic to create an Entertainment fundraiser that would aid the music industry and charities I’m passionate about, while providing a fun new experience for metal fans around the globe,” Godla said in a statement. “As the world prepares for a post-quarantine comeback, with more live shows announced each week, I have made the decision to send off Slay At Home as it began a year ago, with a mammoth variety show filled with lots of surprises, for an even greater set of causes.”
He added, “I invite everyone in the world to safely get together and watch as we celebrate music in its purest form. It’s an honor all around to work on this with so many incredible players who went above and beyond to create a truly unique experience.”
The free event will feature cover collaborations by members of Deftones, Incubus, Megadeth, Killswitch Engage,
Cavalera Conspiracy, Type O Negative, Suffocation and more. It will be live-streamed via the Metal Injection YouTube page.
