Everfest's Take

From the Organizer

LEAF prepares to celebrate some of its greatest traditions, highlights, and community artists, as the 25-year festival goes virtual for the first time. Friday, May 15th to Sunday, May 17th, 2020 - LEAF welcomes the global community to come together and digitally experience world music, culture, and community from the safety of their respective homes. Throughout its storied history, LEAF Festival has played host to over 100 Nations, 500,000 patrons, 25,000 performers, and countless transformative experiences bringing diversity, artistic excellence, and global identity into the lives of three generations of families. “We didn't know if we had the capacity to create our 1st Virtual experience with all staff furloughed/ reduced and no budget, yet we are missing our LEAF community, the 1st May in 25 years without a festival gathering, and seeing our mission come to life in brilliant ways through festival connections and traditions. We've embraced that "V-LEAF" will be old school creative, authentic, and fun. It is our hope, V-LEAF will revive spirits, inspire dreams, and provide connection. A silver lining is anyone across the world can join- no travel or ticket needed.” -Jennifer Pickering, LEAF Global Arts Executive Director WHAT TO EXPECT 1. Music! - A combination of limited live performances, at-home recordings, and restreams of some of LEAF’s most iconic shows. The festival will be anchored by its trademark musical curation and genre variety. 2. International Exploration! - Explore the world through the eyes of LEAF Culture Keepers and global artists. 3. Family-friendly music & arts - LEAF is a family tradition! LEAF Schools & Streets Artists will be showcasing their arts and creating free classes for all ages. 4. Renew your spirits!
