Godla commented:

“By keeping the set times between 5 and 15 minutes for each artist, it allows me to not only keep things moving, but mix it up in ways that conventional festivals simply can’t. Every single hour will contain big names and emerging artists right next to each other.

I’m trying to look at the bright side of our current situation, and not only make this an entertaining way to see the artists you love flex their creativity in new ways, but hope this event acts as a place of discovery for every viewer out there.

Finding a band or artist to fall in love with is the mark of a great festival to me, and it’s my honor to share the work of these amazing individuals I curated because I’m passionate about them. I’ve been in touch with all of them every step of the way, and some even managed to throw me a few surprises.

I’m honored and humbled to have all of them part of this, they truly went above and beyond to showcase their craft for the Slay At Home fest, and I can’t wait for the world to see something really special come to life this weekend.”

Money raised from the event will benefit MusiCares and Global Giving.

Glenn Danzig Says Misfits Have “Talked About” Releasing Live Material Or Possibly Recording Something

During a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Glenn Danzig was asked if he has any future plans with the Misfits and he responded by saying “Not right now.” However, when asked if the band have considered releasing a new live effort or possibly recording something, the frontman added: “Yeah, we’ll see. It’s something we’ve talked about.” He then continued after being asked if he was happy with the group’s reunion shows:

“Yeah. Shit, we sold out Madison Square Garden. As a matter of fact, we oversold it. Back in the day, all the bigwig promoters and record label people were, like, ‘A punk band will never headline Madison Square Garden.’ And, of course, we’re the first punk band to headline there. And not only did we sell it out, we oversold it. So a big fuck you to all those assholes, who are probably selling hotdogs on Sixth Avenue.”
