During the necessary social isolation to contain the worldwide spread of Covid-19 (new coronavirus), artistic manager Carlo Bruno Montalvão, of Brain Productions Booking, devised an online festival with an unprecedented format, in addition to being strictly professional and, most importantly, beneficent. It is the Global Music Fest 2020, which will take place from April 23 to 26, with unpublished broadcasts on the Youtube channel of Minuto Indie, with 21 bands from the alternative scene from 8 different countries. The Festival is an unprecedented partnership between Brain Productions Booking and the Minuto Indie channel, through its creators, Montalvão (Brain) and Alexandre Giglio (Minute Indie).

In addition to the visibility of bands, among promises, revelations and renowned names in the world of alternative music, the Global Music Fest 2020 focuses on the social. The event will raise funds to help institutions engaged to minimize the impacts caused by the new coronavirus crisis. All the money raised will be used to make masks, respirators and distribute non-perishable food to people in social vulnerability. Donations can be made, during the festival, through the platforms KICKANTE (for donations within Brazil) and PATREON (for those who are abroad).

The event also has the support of KEXP's El Sonido program. El Sonido is a program presented by DJ Chilly and produced by Albina Carrera, totally focused on music produced in Latin America that airs every Monday on the renowned Seattle radio, they curated the first day of the festival.

The festival, unlike the lives that became popular in times of the pandemic, will be pre-recorded in the studio and / or in the homes of the artists themselves, in unpublished formats. Each band was responsible for recording, and then editing and post-production were carried out by a team from Minuto Indie and Global Music Fest 2020, so that the final product (the musical presentation) reaches the public with quality. image and content.

Each program (band) will be between 25 and 30 minutes in length. Starting with a quick introduction about the attraction (who it is, main points of the career and his most recent work), followed by the presentation itself, with four or five songs. There will also be an interview, with relaxed questions and also related to Covid-19. The program ends by reminding the viewer about the importance of donation and, of course, to stay online and enjoy the whole festival.

The creator Montalvão talks more about the festival. "The idea of Global Music Fest came up after I had a 45-concert tour (which would go through the United States, Italy, France, the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany) totally canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. From the sadness of having so many important shows canceled at once, the idea arose to create a virtual event that could bring together artists not only from Brazil, but from other countries, in order to bring scenes from those countries closer, even if it was virtually ".

Montalvão, then, combined music and the desire to help others, transforming the event into a fundraising platform to help people in situations of social vulnerability. "In partnership with Alexandre Giglio, after many meetings and dialogues, we created this format of special programs, where each episode an artist is presented on the channel Minuto Indie".

The curation was surgical. "I tried to invite relevant artists from the alternative scene from different countries", reveals the creator. "The festival will have the honorable participation of Doug Martsch (Built To Spill), Rishi Dhir (of the band Elephant Stone, from Canada), Tempers (a brilliant duo from New York), besides the bands Golden Dawn Archestra and Strange Lot (from Austin, Texas) and Brazilians The Baggios, Bike, Ema Stoned, Atalhos and Jonathan Ferr, among the many artists ".

Alexandre Giglio, from Minuto Indie, talk about how the transmission will be. "It will be live on the Indie Minute youtube channel. The format is simple: I present the festival and its whole concept because we are doing this and then just enjoy and delight with the band! We will have 4 days in a row and 5 bands (lives) a day! In other words, good music is what you will not miss ".
