The Twitch Stream Aid 2020 event will feature All Time Low‘s Alex Gaskarth, Halestorm and Steve Aoki performing tomorrow. The all-day special, hosted by Twitch, will bring the worlds of music, sports and gaming together to raise funds to fight the coronavirus pandemic. Proceeds will go to the World Health Organization’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.
Beginning at 12 p.m. tomorrow (March 28), viewers can log into Twitch to watch exclusive performances from a wide array of artists. In addition, there will be athlete and celebrity appearances, as well as an entire gaming network (dubbed “twitchrivals’) dedicated to livestreaming games. During the Stream Aid broadcast, viewers will be given opportunities to donate to the cause. For more details on what you can do from your home, visit the Twitch site here.
The Stream Aid lineup is heavy on pop notables. Among those slated to appear include the Chainsmokers, Camila Cabello, Diplo, Charlie Puth, Charli XCX, Joe Jonas and Rita Ora. Members of Bastille, Cage The Elephant, Mumford And Sons, OneRepublic, X-Ambassadors and Young The Giant will also be appearing. (A scheduled appearance from Die Antwoord can’t do anything but stand out.)
Twitch Stream Aid goes live March 28 at 9am PT.
Stars from the worlds of music, gaming, and sports are coming together to benefit the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for WHO.
