Over the last few weeks, Dork have been calling up some of our favourite artists and asking them to film lo-fi sets from self-isolation. Recorded on phones, in front rooms and with whatever is lying around, they’ve gathered them together – hundreds of them – to create a music festival of their very own: Homeschool.
Held over the three days of the bank holiday weekend (8th-10th May), these performances will be played out across multiple stages showcasing some of the most exciting artists on the planet. Broadcast in a shared-experience, linear style, you’ll be able to swap between a Main Stage set to see what’s going on over in Hype, or tweet about the new track you’ve just seen your faves drop unexpectedly. You just need to provide the drinks.
Complete with showcasing a range of incredible performances, Homeschool is also raising much needed awareness of the incredible work of frontline medical staff and volunteers here in the UK – encouraging donations to the NHS Charities Together Covid-19 Urgent Appeal throughout the weekend. More information on the appeal can be found here.
You’ll be able to watch all the action on a dedicated, specially built website, homeschoolfest.com, with various extra ‘stuff’ happening across the weekend on social media and beyond. You can check the first list of names – there’s over 100 of them – here. More will be announced in the run up, too. Staying in is the new going out, right?
