Death Cab for Cutie, Hozier, “Weird Al” Yankovic and more musicians are coming together for Bedstock, the most comfortable music festival in existence. The online music event has artists perform music from their beds, lying in solidarity with kids fighting serious illnesses who are forced to spend their holidays in the hospital.
Running for its fifth year, Bedstock was created by MyMusicRx, a flagship program of the Children’s Cancer Association (CCA). MyMusicRx uses the healing power of music to relieve stress and anxiety for children and teens facing cancer and other serious illnesses across the country.
This year’s Bedstock begins on Giving Tuesday (Nov. 27) and runs until Dec. 4. The online festival is the first of its kind, and includes performances from CCA children in addition to the videos recorded by various musicians like Bishop Briggs and Tune-Yards. “[I’m] grateful to be joining so many excellent artists playing from bed to do a little part to heal and uplift seriously ill kids,” Merrill Garbus of Tune-Yards tells Billboard.
Viewers can stream the exclusive performances on Bedstock’s official site, as well as donate to MyMusicRx. For the first time this year, with every donation, each supporter is automatically entered for a chance to win one-of-a-kind prizes like VIP festival experiences and an autographed guitar.
“What I love most about Bedstock is that we are delivering a music festival directly to kids who can’t get out of their hospital beds,” Hozier said in a press release. “Every child should get to experience the healing power of music and I am so honored to help make that happen.”
