Google is launching its own “first-of-its-kind livestream festival” called GOODFest.

Aimed at bringing together “music, community and technology,” the initiative will raise money for non-profits through ticket sales and online donations.

Here’s how Google describes the motivation behind its new festival:

“GOODFest is a celebration of progress, positivity, and the power of people to push the world forward. In five livestreamed shows, we’re bringing together music, community, and technology to raise funds and connect people in the name of good.”

The festival will be combined of 5 independent events in five separate cities across the US, including New York City (supporting Generosity), New Orleans (supporting Humanity), Seattle (supporting Earth), San Francisco (supporting Equality) and Los Angeles (playing for Love).

New York City will be the first location to kick-off the series of GOODFest events with the synth-pop/ Indie band Glass Animals performing at the BAM Café on Tuesday, 29th Nov, followed by a concert by Gogol Bordello in New Orleans, 9th December.

Google will be streaming the shows on YouTube and Facebook Live. Those with compatible Android phones will be able to experience the concerts in VR using Google’s cardboard headsets.
