The LiveHOPE Festival uses the universal language of art and music to mobilize and engage a viewing audience of 2 billion people to take direct actions on the “Environmental, Humanitarian, and Climate Emergencies” facing humanity and Planet Earth.

The LiveHOPE Festival also celebrates the 35th Anniversary of LiveAID with activities that will encompass the Whole Earth. Music will be at the center of all the festivities. The artists with the biggest hearts, most brilliant minds, and most compassionate souls will be at the forefront of creating this paradigm shift.  We expected a viewing audience of billions of people using 4K broadcasts.

There will be a spectacular 7 day carbon-negative multi-city global musical extravaganza to bring people together to create a paradigm shift in consciousness, and culture. LiveHOPE will host 100-plus bands and artists performing on epic stages across 3 or more cities.

LiveHOPE combines the fun of a music festival like Woodstock, with the international televised star-power of LiveAID, which includes telethons, concerts, awards, conferences, exhibitions, and environmental actions (like Plant 2 Trillion Peace Trees) to deal with this “Environmental, Humanitarian, and Climate Emergencies”. 

Standing Rock will be focused on rock, pop, folk, EDM, and country music. Ethiopia will focus on pop, reggae, African, world and international music. Puerto Rico will be focused on Latin, pop and EDM. There will be something for everyone.

This is a 21st-century LiveAID style concert with an integrated social media, smart phones, and a technological communications approach. The LiveHOPE team is confident that the event can encompass participants from the 900 cities and jurisdictions worldwide, and the 7,000 schools and educational networks that have already declared an environmental and climate emergency.

Earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s needs, but not every man’s greed. – Mahatma Gandhi
