The Belize Music Agency, the Office of the Music Ambassador, and Digi are partnering with other organizations to host the first Belize Virtual Music Festival.

The music festival aims to bring awareness to the importance of social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic and to provide support to local Belizean musicians who have been displaced as a result of COVID-19. The concert will be held on May 1, 2020, at 8:00 p.m. and will be live streamed on social media via the Belize Virtual Music Festival and the Government of Belize Press Office Facebook pages.

To encourage social distancing, the concert will be produced from the living rooms of 19 artists from across the country. It will also feature video interviews from health professionals and workers from relevant government institutions, including messages from the Ministry of Health on protection during this crisis.

Most importantly, the production will enable the public, our other partners, and friends to contribute to individual artists via an online tip basket The assistance will support the artists who are without any means of finance during this difficult time. If successful, a similar concert featuring other Belizean musicians in need of similar assistance will be held at a later date.

If you would like to sponsor an artist or assist in this initiative, please call us at tel: 632-3224 or e-mail us at
