The coronavirus came to change many things, one of them, the way of consuming live music. The famous host of The Late Late Show, James Corden, also had to adapt his show to modern needs. With great ingenuity, He decided to launch a new festival called Homefest with guests that many festivals around the world would like to have in his lineup. The invited artists were BTS, Dua Lipa and Billie Eilish among others. All of them together with James Corden to give a really special show on Monday, March 30 at 8:00 p.m.
This homemade festival organized by the creator of Carpool Karaoke, which has seen legends parade with Sir Paul McCartney, had several objectives. The first is always and will be to have good music in our ears. Something very necessary in these times of social isolation. Although Corden himself prefers to call it “physical isolation”, because there are always ways to be connected. Another goal was to raise funds for organizations seeking to help coronavirus victims. Finally, he also sought to spread and emphasize the message of staying home. Something very important to combat the flow of the virus.
At this festival each of the guests raffled from the living room (or the place you want) of their home and were connected via the internet. This is how the British Dua Lipa was seen from her home in London, the BTS boys from Seoul and Billie Eilish from Los Angeles. In addition to these three big names, there were also John Legend and Andrea Bocelli from Italy, one of the most affected countries in the world.
The Homefest festival was broadcast on the US channel CBS, so to see it in Mexico and Latin America, a subscription is required through its website. But hold on … The concert will be so important that we can almost certainly tell you that the videos of the Corden festival will be coming to YouTube in the coming days.
