Lighting things up, the line-up for this special day festival include Tia Gostelow, Tori Forsyth, DOOLIE, ELEEA, Jordan Merrick, Leonie Kingdom, Genes, Ella Fence and more.
With mental health having such a huge impact on the music industry, especially in recent COVID times, the festival is a chance to eradicate the stigma associated with talking about mental health, while retaining the essence of fun and celebration. Ali Taylor the co-founder of Listen Up Music states:
“Torch Fest has been an idea that I have had for some time now, and it feels right to be launching it at a time when connection and community are so very important. COVID-19 has had an enormous impact on communities all across the country, and the idea of music being something to get you through, coupled with the huge importance to artists of being able to perform live, it’s a no brainer.”
All performers on the day will perform a Torch Song as part of their full set. The festival will distribute battery-powered torches to each attendee to flick on when each of the Torch Songs are played throughout the day, creating a stunning atmosphere.
