LOS ANGELES (CNS) - Aloe Blacc, G. Love, Fortunate Youth and Fishbone are among the acts scheduled for a live-streamed concert on Nov. 21 to support recovery for more than two dozen state parks affected by this year's wildfires.
The California State Parks Wildfire Relief Fund concert is a pay-what-you-can event, with a suggested price of $10. The concert will also include an interactive component in which audiences can see the performances, participate in a group chat and hear California State Parks Director Armando Quintero and other officials discuss the parks after one of the worst fire years in history.
"California's State Parks have a special place in so many people's hearts," Quintero said. "You can see it in the many musicians and artists coming together to put on this benefit show, and in the commitment from organizations like Parks California coming up with creative ways to aid the recovery of our beloved spaces. We're hopeful that innovative thinking like this virtual concert will help our state parks rebuild and thrive for generations to come."
The event lineup also includes Bo Carper and Lebo; Eric Roberson, The Immediate Family; Karl Denson, Morgan James, DJ Shortkut, DJ StartingfromScratch, DJ Qbert and more to follow.
"Seeing entire communities and our beautiful state parks impacted by this year's wildfires was devastating," said Kindley Walsh Lawlor, president and CEO of Parks California, a nonprofit supporting state, regional and local parks. "Then I remembered our resilient community -- the residents in the great state of California and the millions of visitors who frequent our state parks every year. Together, with a little beat, we can find joy and a meaningful way to help our parks recover. The proceeds from this virtual concert will take us closer to rebuilding what was lost and giving each other hope that we will regrow."
The Nov. 21 concert is scheduled for 4 p.m. Tickets are available on the live-stream platform StageIt.com.
