A live music event called Band Together Bay Area surfaced to benefit those most impacted by the North Bay Area fires. The show will be held Thursday, November 9, 2017 at AT&T Park in San Francisco. Performers announced so far include Metallica, Dave Matthews Band, and G-Eazy. This first wave is an eclectic mix that should draw a wide and diverse crowd, with more on the way.
All ticket sales will go to the Tipping Point Emergency Relief Fund, supporting those on the front lines to help those most affected. Tipping Point will deploy funds first to address urgent needs and then to support rebuilding and re-housing efforts.
Band Together Bay Area hasn’t announced any electronic artists yet, but it’d be surprising if we didn’t see at least one. Regardless, it’s awesome to see a community come together and lift each other up, especially through music. Fan club presale begins Thursday, October 26 at 10 a.m. and public on-sale starts Friday, October 27 at 10 a.m.
If you want to get in on the action, flights to San Francisco from the Northwest tend to be reasonable! Or, you can always donate directly to Tipping Point Emergency Relief Fund and learn more here.
