Darkest Hour, TesseracT, Etc. Sign On For First-Ever ‘Slay At Home’ Virtual Festival


Slay At Home‘ is an upcoming virtual metal & art festival which is set to take place May 29th & 30th. Organized by Frank Godla of Metal Injection, the two-day livestreamed event will sport previously unseen performances, cover song collaborations, commissioned music, guest appearances and art installations.

Godla commented:

“The COVID-19 pandemic has affected nearly everyone on the planet, and sadly some of the last people to get their lives back will be the ones we depend on to get us through these times. I wanted to create a platform that aids artists, their crew, and global healthcare efforts alike.

The experience of a live concert is irreplaceable, but my aim with Slay At Home is to provide every person in the world an experience they haven’t seen yet, right from their own devices. I’ve never been more proud to be part of the metal community and have so many great friends willing to join the fun, as we support two great organizations.”

While the festival will be free to view on Metal Injection’s YouTube, fundraising will be underway during its airing with proceeds earmarked for the MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund and the Global Giving Coronavirus Relief Fund.
