Live Nation has launched the The Crew Nation, which is intended to help support live music crews (managers, riggers, sound engineers, etc) who are left struggling due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Music Forward Foundation will be in charge of selecting recipients but the employees of Live Nation will not be eligible to receive funding.
The Crew Nation fund is here to help support live music crews who have been directly impacted as shows are put on pause due to COVID-19.
Crew like you are essential to the fabric of live touring. You work behind the scenes to help artists and fans connect with the magic of live music, and Live Nation wants to ensure you are taken care of during this time.
Crew Nation is designed to help all the backstage staff that help bring concerts to life including: tour managers, production managers, riggers, sound engineers, backline techs, lighting directors/designers, special effects teams, carpenters, and more.
Music Forward Foundation will be selecting recipients based on an objective determination of need; employees of Live Nation will not be eligible to receive funding.
