Duluth Homegrown Music Festival’s Winter Fiasco went virtual this year, dropping four hours of music and interviews on their YouTube page.

The event has been broken up into four different episodes and each is currently available to watch for free.

Last year’s Homegrown Music Festival was canceled due to COVID-19 and this year all of their events will remain virtual.

Dozens of artists perform in the new virtual concert with several, such as The Sordid Affairs’ Moriah Skye, performing new music written during the pandemic.

The virtual show also features several interviews with those who have been involved with Homegrown throughout the years reminiscing on the festival’s impact on them.

"I’m still blown away every single time, you know I still go in and listen to a Homegrown performance and go 'My god, how is every single one so good?,'" said the festival’s assistant director, Sean Zarn.

Homegrown’s executive director, Melissa La Tour, said she hopes people will continue to make an effort to support artists and venues who’ve been struggling during the pandemic so that the music can continue once it’s over.

Homegrown Music Festival is accepting donations on their website.
