Warner Music Group is hosting a virtual music festival, PlayOn Fest, to raise money for the World Health Organization’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.

The three-day viewing event runs this weekend — April 24 through 26 — for 72 hours straight, and will showcase past performances from more than 65 of the label group’s superstars, including Cardi B, Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars, Panic! At The Disco, Green Day, Coldplay, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Roddy Ricch, Lil Uzi Vert, Paramore, Death Cab for Cutie, Twenty One Pilots, Weezer, David Guetta, Charlie Puth, and Wiz Khalifa.

“During this pandemic, we are all searching for ways to stay connected,” says Elizabeth Cousens, President & CEO of the UN Foundation. “The PlayOn Fest is a great way to come together, enjoy good music and company, and support the World Health Organization’s most urgent global work to combat COVID-19.”

Fans can tune in this weekend at PlayOnFest.com and via Songkick’s YouTube. The festival will raise money through click-to-donate links and an exclusive PlayOn Fest merch collection.

“Don’t play yourself! Tune into PlayOn Fest April 24-26 and help us raise money for the World Health Organization to boost COVID-19 relief funds,” said Cardi B, whose 2018 performance at Global Citizen in New York will be included, in a press statement. “Thank you to all of the healthcare workers who are dedicating their services and helping to save lives! Since I can’t get on stage right now…I’m throwing it back to my party at the Global Citizen Festival to hopefully send some love and light to y’all. Stay safe everyone!”
