The first Balcony Online festival took place a few weeks back and has since reached over 1,000 views and raised more than £700 for Musicians Against Homelessness. This afternoon (Saturday 11th April) the second Balcony online festival starts on the live stream below from 1pm.
Balcony is an online music festival in aid of NHS Charities Together, supporting nhs.uk staff and volunteers caring for COVID-19 patients. The show will be free to view via a number of established independent UK blogs who have collaborated to create this event. Viewers are encouraged to make a donation to the charity if they can afford to do so. You can donate on this link: https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/Team/BalconyOnlineMusicFestival
