59 X Records announced the second annual 59 X Fest on February 27th, 2021. Artists on the 59 X Records roster and close friends are joining forces to present a special acoustic festival live from their creative spaces viewable directly from your home via Veeps. Performances include headliners Neon Dreams with support from The Carolyn, Viper Club, Heathersett, Shoegazers, Hoity-Toity, Rough Dreams, Taylor Sackson, Misty Eyed, The Killakee House, Black Suit Youth, Snailmate, and a special introduction from This Modern. 100% of ticket sales will be donated to 320 Changes Direction in an effort to shine light on mental health awareness.
Headliner Neon Dreams is fresh off their JUNO win for Breakthrough Group of the Year in 2020 and recently released, “Life Without Fantasies (Ukulele)” on all streaming platforms.
“We’re thrilled to bring back 59 X Fest in 2021 as a virtual livestream. Our fest in 2020 was canceled due to the pandemic so we began plans to host something virtual in early 2021. The bands and artists jumped right to help us make this fest special and different. Due to everyone being spread out across the US and Canada, we wanted the world to see our artists and friends behind the scenes in their own creative spaces, even if that meant just filming with an iPhone. It speaks to the culture here at 59 X Records that we are really proud of,” says 59 X Records Founder, Peter Catalano.
On selecting working with 320 Changes Direction:
“Seeing musicians, fans, and the rest of the world continue to struggle with mental health throughout this global pandemic has been difficult for everyone. In the absence of live shows, we were compelled to use whatever platform we could to raise awareness and funds for 320 Changes Direction,” says Ami Rogers, festival organizer and VP of Operations & Artist Development at 59 X Records.
