"It was amazing to see the way that artists, crew, industry, and fans were all able to be together - safely enjoying live music, in order to help keep our industry afloat in Austin," said DOSSEY, who performed during weekend one of the series and also is on the L&LS team. "I really don't think the fans truly understand what it means to us all to have work and to be able to share music with them in person. It was incredibly humbling to share in that moment with them and one of those shows I will never, ever forget."

L&LS is also proud to announce its official event sponsors for the four week series, including: Brown Distributing, Paula Pierce Law, Cadence Wealth Management, Monark Builders, Austin Rotary Club, Engineer Austin, Werd, Valet Restrooms, KUTX, Kibo, Juice Consulting, Restart CBD, Austin Gourmet Popcorn, Wild Gift Coffee, End of an Ear, Tiff's Treats, Music Water, Once Over Coffee, Deep Eddy Vodka, Austin Eastciders, Bouldin Creek Cafe, Team Hurst Realty, Waterloo, Yeti and Redbull.

As the music industry continues to take devastating hits from the COVID-19 pandemic, L&LS aims to launch a movement to experience live music again and support the local music community in a safe, responsible and beautiful way. Each concert will be implemented with the utmost in social distancing and safety protocols. Only 200 cars will be admitted on-site each evening and a free live-stream of most artists' sets will be available for world-wide viewing on loveandlightstream.com.

"COVID-19 is obliterating many facets of the music industry," said Erik Engh, Executive Producer of Love & Lightstream. "Austin is bearing a particularly crushing blow. The path forward involves everyone working together to figure out how to preserve and support this fragile ecosystem. L&LS consists of a 'superhero' team representing a broad cross-section of Austin's artist, production, charity and promoter industries. We have worked tirelessly to deliver a safe, positive and high quality outdoor drive-in experience. We look forward to positives-vibes, world-class entertainment, jobs and hope for our music and related industries."

Love & Lightstream (L&LS) is an organization whose purpose is to create high-quality live music events that connect and support Austin's music community with brands and private companies in order to raise money and awareness for local charities. As a collective of fans, artists and industry professionals, L&LS depend on and believe in the power of music to lift up entire communities. In the new and unknown landscape brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, the music community is one that is suffering the most and L&LS feel that it is their responsibility to do something about it.
L&LS' preliminary event was hosted just one year ago and raised over $60,000 for Helping Hand Home for Children. During the week of the 2020 SXSW cancellation, Black Fret and Love & Lightstream worked together to raise almost $100,000 which was distributed to local nonprofits and Austin musicians, and was used to produce the six-day Love & Lightstream festival which was viewed by a global audience of over 175,000.

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, L&LS had to pivot their model to an outdoor drive-in theatre concert experience to ensure the safety of the attendees, musicians and crew. This drive-in concert series features hand-picked collectives of Austin's most exciting songwriters, artists and bands. A portion of proceeds from the event will directly support the efforts of local nonprofits keeping Austin's musicians and industry alive. L&LS first drive-in concert series was accomplished in one month's time, and featured performances by local artists such as ...And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead, Sir Woman, David Ramirez, Quiet Company, Jackie Venson, Jonathan Terrell, Swimming With Bears, The Bishops, Jaimee Harris, Think No Think, Heart of the City and Indian & the Jones.
