LIVE Virtual Music Events

For the past 18 months Music Lottery has been helping small venues and musicians make sustainable living wages in British Columbia.

The live music and entertainment industry has been hit hard by Covid-19 and it will be a challenging road to recovery. We are seeing and feeling the massive effects of cancelled and postponed events.

Artists and musicians have lost just about all ability to perform and earn money from performing due to cancelled events through summer and possibly the year.

We are working on plans that will enable bands to come together while socially distancing for live performances that can be streamed to fans.

Interaction and monetization are aspects of the live experience that will be incorporated.

Music Lottery is a fundraising program that supports venues, musicians and concert support workers. For the last 18 months we held bi-weekly draws where 50% of every jackpot went to a winner, and the other 50% went into live music programming in BC.

Stay tuned for more announcements soon!
