Bang On A Can Music Festival!

Sunday, June 14, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 9:00 pm

SIX NONSTOP HOURS OF LIVE STREAMING MUSIC!
SUNDAY JUNE 14 3 PM!

Bang on a Can presents 6 hours of nonconformist, noncommercial, boundary-smashing music from all over the globe. We kick off at 3 pm with the ever-powerful Rhiannon Giddens and close off with minimalist guru Terry Riley. Don’t miss a rare solo performance by the brilliant Roscoe Mitchell and 10 world premieres commissioned especially for the day among 25 live performances with musicians connecting from around the USA, Canada, Czech Republic, Estonia, Switzerland, Scotland, Italy, Ireland, Lithuania and more.

This is a free concert. But please consider purchasing a Ticket! Doing so will help us to do more performances, pay more players, commission more composers, and share more music worldwide. An entire ecosystem of composers and performers still need our attention, and our love, and our financial support!

Bang on a Can is donating 10% of each ticket purchased to Equal Justice Initiative in support of their “commitment to ending mass incarceration and excessive punishment in the United States, to challenging racial and economic injustice, and to protecting the basic human rights for the most vulnerable people in American society.” Bang on a Can’s Board of Directors will match each dollar donated by Bang on a Can to the Equal Justice Initiative.
