    – June 17th, 2021 –

    Slay At Home, the first of its kind virtual music festival organized by Frank Godla of Metal Injection, is celebrating its one year anniversary with the announcement of a grand finale. The fully stacked event will air this Friday and Saturday (June 18 & 19th) with music beginning at 12PM PST//3PM EST both days and panel discussions beforehand. The free virtual event will fundraise in support of 4 great charity organizations; Musicares, The Iggy Fund, Cancer Research Institute, and National Alliance On Mental Illness. Info on these four charities can be found at the Slay At Home Festival website here.

    Following the success of the first Slay At Home festival in the early stages of the pandemic, it was soon launched into a monthly series that has now collectively received millions of views, and over $200,000 in donations to various charities throughout the year.

    Godla comments on the finale: “I started Slay At Home early in the pandemic to create an Entertainment fundraiser that would aid the music industry and charities I’m passionate about, while providing a fun new experience for metal fans around the globe. As the world prepares for a post-quarantine comeback, with more live shows announced each week, I have made the decision to send off Slay At Home as it began a year ago, with a mammoth variety show filled with lots of surprises, for an even greater set of causes. I invite everyone in the world to safely get together and watch as we celebrate music in its purest form. It’s an honor all around to work on this with so many incredible players who went above and beyond to create a truly unique experience.”

    Unlike previous iterations of the Slay At Home fest, this one will also include in-depth discussion panels before the show as part of the side program. Each discussion promises to be an engaging experience for the viewers with special guests they’ll want to tune in early to see including Matt Heafy (Trivium), Cristina Scabbia (Lacuna Coil) and Finn McKenty (YouTuber). More information on the panels can be found right here.

    The completely free event will be live-streamed via the Metal Injection YouTube page, and can be found directly at the links below.
