All musicians and everyone in the industry is being hit hard by this sudden cancellation of all concerts. Musicians are trying to make ends meeting by arranging online concerts and selling merch but this is impacting lots of others as well.
There are sound techs, lighting techs, guitar techs, drum techs, stage managers, tour managers to name a few.
The idea of this crowdfunding is to try and help out some of these people.
If you go to an online gig or go to a virtual pub to catch up with your mates think about whether you can afford to donate the price of a pint to help these guys and girls out.
If musicians and their crew can get through this then we will all be able to go back to doing what we love and get to lots of gigs when this is all over.
