You want to help our city get through the pandemic—we know you do. Kill all your plans for this weekend. You weren’t going anywhere anyway, right? ​Mark yourself as “going” to the Forward Music Festival​, which is taking place on Instagram Live April 24-26. Enjoy the sounds of 18 talented local bands and musicians playing their hearts out to raise money for the Cactus Club, X-Ray Arcade, and The Cooperage. Without venues, our city has no music scene. Milwaukee isn’t Milwaukee without it. So tune in, donate, sing, thrash, or nod your head to the music. Celebrate the sound of our city and protect it at the same time.

More information can be found on the ​Forward Music Festival Facebook event page​.
