Century Media Records has announced that they will be hosting a free virtual music festival. Dubbed ‘Isolation Festival, it is set to take place Thursday, May 14 on Century Media’s YouTube channel starting at 11AM PST/2PM EST and running for 24 hours.
“Even though there is no way to fully replace a real live experience,” writes Century Media in a news article announcing the event, “Century Media and EMP would like to bring at least a kind of similar festival atmosphere in everyone’s living room. Therefore, the label is happy to host the Isolation Festival together with thirteen Century Media Records artists from all over the world, who recorded and filmed exclusive sets to premiere during the event!”
‘Isolation Festival’ will feature never-before-seen live performances from the label’s top acts. Artists on the line-up include Insomnium, Voivod, Borknagar, Omnium Gatherum, Lucifer, Angelus Apatrida, Dead Lord, Deserted Fear, Bonded, The Offering, Svart Crown, Baest and Hideous Divinity.
The article concludes, “In times where most of us are isolated at home, a festival breaks us free, gives us hope and most importantly shows us that the music we love is still out there. We cannot bring you a full festival experience right now, but who ever said that it is impossible to build up a tent in your living room, enjoy canned ravioli and cheap warm beer indoors?”
