Come Together to Sing, Play, Give! The last 4 months have been an incredibly challenging time for all of us in the Hospitality industry... But the show must go on! There have been many people doing amazing things for those less fortunate during this crisis. At Exp101 we want to bring some positivity back to our amazing hospitality teams by giving them something to look forward to. We’ve created ‘Come Together’ as a way to unite our fantastic people through a day of music - 12 hours of live music from across the globe, performed by your teams and all streamed online. For one day, we will unite our industry around the world as we encourage performers to sing and play, and inspire our viewers to give. We want every brand to take part, no matter the size. Our industry employs some amazingly talented people, and we want to give them the chance to express themselves and represent your brand on a global stage.How does it work?Each artist that takes part will be able to submit their audition using this link https://hospitalityaid2020.hgem.com/ We will require a 5 minute video clip or a link to content showcasing their talent – this could be singing, playing, dancing or even spoken word. We will then select up to 50 acts to perform as part of our lineup. Every artist we select will receive their own unique URL, allowing the viewers to digitally tip the performers on the day. 50% of these funds will go directly to the artist, and the other half will go to the fantastic charity Action Against Hunger.Why Action Against Hunger? We wanted a cause that would resonate with a global audience. The crisis we are currently facing won’t end when a vaccine is created, it will continue to affect generations to come and we need to recognise that and support the people who are going to need it most.What does my brand have to do?Nothing but spread the word. We will supply marketing collateral and a site for your teams to apply to, all we ask is that you share this content and celebrate your team members who audition and take part. Deadline for auditions is 1st August.What do the artists get?The chosen artists get the chance to play on a global stage, as well as a limited edition ‘Come Together’ VIP lanyard and some merchandise for taking part in the event. They will also receive 50% of the tips which are paid via their personalised URL. How long does my set have to be & what can I play?Each set will be between 10 and 15 minutes – artists can play covers or their own original material.I love this and I want to help! How do I get my company involved?We are looking for support from anyone who is willing both in commercial terms and in ability to support with logistics. We will also be looking for product to sell in our beer & food tents on the day - please email firstname.lastname@example.org or Kieron@experience101.co.uk for further details.
