The full lineup for the inaugural Abracadabra Festival has been announced and will virtual performances from over 75 artists & guests including DJ Snoopadelic (Snoop Dogg), Tycho, Diplo, Chanel Tres, and Kool & The Gang, discussions and workshops with environmental thought-leaders, wellness activities including live palm reading by T-Pain, interactive magic shows, and more. The four-day virtual music fest will run from this Thursday, September 17th through Sunday the 20th and stream via Twitch. The festival is free to attend and 100% of the proceeds from voluntary viewer donations will benefit environmental organizations including Lonely Whale, Parley for the Oceans, and Abracadabra co-founder BLOND:ISH’s non-profit, Bye Bye Plastic, which is dedicated to eliminating single use plastics from the music industry by 2025. ABRACADABRA, female-founded and led by international touring artist & DJ, Vivie-Ann Bakos aka BLOND:ISH and Liana Hillison, has been producing unique single-use plastic free events in Tulum, Mykonos, and at Tomorrowland since 2017. This past March, as music venues and festivals shut down due to Covid-19, BLOND:ISH and her team quickly adapted by launching AbracadabraTV on Twitch, the world’s largest live-streaming service. Twitch quickly took notice and has officially partnered with AbracadabraTV, which now live streams multiple weekly shows featuring music, magic, wellness, and social impact programming for a rapidly growing community of creators and fans looking for new ways to connect during this new era of social distancing. “As an international touring artist affected by Covid-19, it feels like we’re cracking the code in terms of continuing to build a connection with our community and bring them new transformative experiences from afar. Virtual events have greater reach and even more merit than physical ones in some ways, and will give an edge to the human connection we feel when physical events eventually return.” says BLOND:ISH.
