On Saturday, August 15th, the gallery and its partners are proud to present (DE)TOUR, a daylong charity music festival featuring an all-star lineup of artists working in association with MusiCares®, National Independent Venue Association (NIVA), and Spotify in support of fellow artists, crew members, and independent venues and promoters.

With (DE)TOUR, Morrison Hotel Gallery takes the new normal to the next level, offering patrons all-day, unlimited access to YouTube Live streamed performances of festival headliners. Stars will deliver intimate performances from their own homes, as well as stunning shows from the otherwise vacant stages of legendary music venues throughout the nation, including New York City's Bowery Electric, West Hollywood's Whisky a Go Go, The Roxy Theatre, and the Viper Room – with numerous surprise stops and celebrity guests along the way. (DE)TOUR will be hosted by Spotify Global Head of Rock Allison Hagendorf and famed MTV/VH1 personality Matt Pinfield.
An all-access experience tailored for music fans, (DE)TOUR is created to honor and assist music’s unsung heroes. With no cost for admission and donations accepted in real time via YouTube Live and Facebook Live, Spotify will match donations to MusiCares dollar-for-dollar up to a collective total of $10 Million through its Covid-19 Music Relief project, with all proceeds being split between MusiCares and NIVA.
Spotify has also created a special (DE)TOUR playlist featuring songs from the performers — listen HERE.
