Why: To support the 2020 Census and entertain Detroiters stuck at home due to the COVID-19 Pandemic
The City of Detroit is partnering with fashion label Detroit VS Everybody by Tommey Walker to present the Everybody Vs COVID-19 Unity Festival on May 29th and May 30th. In efforts to continue the fight against the spread of COVID-19 and raise awareness about the importance of the 2020 Census, this two-day festival will include more than 20 musical acts and appearances including Big Sean, Mayer Hawthorne, Sada Baby, DJ D Nice, La Britney, Gmac Cash and many more Detroit grown and affiliated artists.
The Unity Festival will offer hours of in-home entertainment while also promoting safety measures of COVID-19 and encouraging Detroiters to take 10 minutes to fill out the Census, which will impact citywide services for all Detroiters. Musical Acts will be streamed live on the City’s Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram starting at 7 p.m. each day and concluding around 10 p.m.
Detroit has been a leader in implementing relief efforts and programs for residents as people across the globe are staying home and social distancing to reduce the spread of the coronavirus. The Unity Festival is a means to encourage residents to stay safe during the pandemic and urge them to complete the 2020 Census.
