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.

Municipal Waste’s Tony Foresta: “We’re Sitting On A Lot Of New Material”

During a recent interview with Overdrive.ie, Municipal Waste’s Tony Foresta revealed that the band are “sitting on a lot of new material.” He said the following:

“…To be honest we’re sitting on a lot of new material and I reckon we’re just gonna go for another album. It took us five years to make ‘Slime…‘ and now we’re only 2 years deep and we’re ready to go again! I’ve been so busy with Iron Reagan and Municipal… that I’m actually taking 5/6 months off, just because I’m fucking overworked. It’s finally come to a point where I’ve hit a wall with both projects and I’m exhausted from it.”
