In 1969, John Lennon and Yoko Ono staged a bed-in at the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth hotel in Montréal, Canada where they penned and recorded the iconic pacifist song “Give Peace a Chance.” 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of this historic moment in music history, and this year’s Folk Alliance International conference is taking place in the same hotel.
Commemorate this event and celebrate its spirit of peace and solidarity through music. The conference invite all conference attendees and all their folk friends around the world to join them by live-streaming a performance of “Give Peace a Chance” from your own beds on Saturday, February 16th at 9:30 am ET.
How to Participate:
1. RSVP to be part of the official register of participants.
2. JOIN FOLK ALLIANCE INTERNATIONAL BY LIVE STREAMING YOUR OWN BED-IN PERFORMANCE OF THE SONG at 9:30 am ET on Saturday, February 16.
Use the preferred platforms, Facebook and Instagram Live and follow along with the hashtag #GiveFOLKaChance.
Registered participants at the conference can stop by the merch table to pick up a complimentary Folk Peace banner to hang behind your bed for the live-stream. For anyone participating from home, you can print your own here.
