The event was created by voter registration nonprofit HeadCount, along with Fort William Artist Management and Live From Out There. In a statement, HeadCount executive director Andy Bernstein described the show as the “first of its kind.”
“We love the idea of serving up original performances to anyone who checks their voter registration status,” he said. “We applaud the artists and Fort William Management for their leadership, and we hope it inspires many more similar events in the future.”
To stream for free, check your registration status before 6 p.m. ET on August 13. After that point, you can purchase an eTicket for $20 via the Live From Out There site. (Those who can’t register to vote in the U.S. can earn free access to the stream by pledging to vote.)
