Metal Injection editor Frank Godla is the brainchild behind Slay at Home.

“I’m trying to look at the bright side of our current situation, and not only make this an entertaining way to see the artists you love flex their creativity in new ways, but hope this event acts as a place of discovery for every viewer out there,” he said in a statement. “Finding a band or artist to fall in love with is the mark of a great festival to me, and it’s my honor to share the work of these amazing individuals I curated because I’m passionate about them.”

The free livestream is set for 3 p.m. EST both days and will raise funds for the MusiCares Covid-19 Relief Fund and Global Giving Coronavirus Relief Fund.
