Room Service Music Festival is bringing back the festival experience to quarantined music lovers around the globe starting now TODAY, April 24, streaming Friday through Sunday exclusively on the official YouTube channels Trap Nation & Chill Nation. Renowned viral event hero and dynamic philanthropist Andy King was recently announced as host of the weekend, along with performances by Yungblud, A Boogie wit da Hoodie, Channel Tres, Chromeo, Zeds Dead, The Glitch Mob (rare downtempo set) and more. Full lineup and set times just announced here.
Proceeds from Room Service will go directly to charitable partners benefiting those affected by COVID-19, including Sweet Relief and Feeding America. Within the first 24 hours of the festival announcement, fans submitting an RSVP to attend had already raised $15,000 for these nonprofits and their important work.
Global company Room Service International joined the festival as well in support of an exciting new partnership with the Nations. “This is a time to unite and realize the power of humanity. What we’re facing is bigger than all of us. Let’s find solutions, destroy boundaries and barriers, and prosper together as one through music and community,” says Julio Galvez, Founder & CEO of RSI. “We are excited to work with the Nations in producing an impactful online event for such an incredible cause.”
With the approaching third anniversary of the infamous Fyre Festival, event producer Andy King is excited to be named host of Room Service. Having emerged as the star in Netflix’s Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened for stepping up to “do whatever it takes,” Andy leveraged his attention for good and helped raise over $300,000 for the people affected in the Bahamas by Fyre Festival. Andy said: “I’m beyond thrilled to host Room Service this weekend and bring everybody some well-deserved joy and distraction! This festival gives us a chance to translate the anniversary of Fyre into some real good that’s needed in the world right now.”
Unitea was also just named the official media sponsor for Room Service, allowing fans to schedule festival sets, build artist-fan groups called “Crews” and earn “Karma” currency in exchange for free merchandise, tickets or experiences with the artists. Additionally, the app will pay out to artists for fostering these virtual communities. This new partnership represents Unitea’s latest effort in overhauling how artists can interact with their following, while offering tangible benefits for users showing artist loyalty.
In addition, Video Game Developers Bandai (Pac Man – Dragon Ball Z) jumped on as a promotional partner and will be premiering 6 new games. The premium entertainment company THX Ltd. was also announced as the audio sponsor. THX will be contributing their technical expertise to enhance the at-home clubbing experience with THX® Spatial Audio for select DJ sets to deliver a heightened, realistic and immersive experience for listeners. Razer will also be providing artists with all of the necessities, from laptops to cameras so they can remain sheltered in place and stream with all the essential hardware.
Mirroring the traditional festival experience, Room Service will feature simultaneous multi-channels as “stages” with mixed genres across The Nations’ YouTube channels, including their biggest Trap Nation and Chill Nation. With a combined audience of over 60 million across all digital platforms, The Nations is the largest, fastest-growing music, multi-channel network on YouTube with over 200 million monthly views.
Live programming, studio sessions, artist interviews, and fundraising opportunities will be scattered throughout the weekend, all broadcast remotely from the homes of artists around the world.
