As the COVID-19 crisis continues to hamstring New York City’s club and live music scene, a number of venues are banding together to create NYC Nightlife United, a “new emergency fund that aims to provide immediate relief to shuttered cultural centers affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.”
The fun was created by the partnership of AdHoc Presents and Friends and Lovers as well as The Solo Foundation, a “non-profit focused on the arts to administer the fund in a fast and equitable way.”
“Our city is notorious for its thriving nightlife, and it is up to us to work together to revive it responsibly,” explains Kae Burke, co-founder and creative director of House of Yes. “Initiatives like NYC Nightlife United’s emergency fund, give me hope that we can work together to help our venues and creative community survive this hiatus which will save New York’s nightlife culture for the future. We just can’t do it alone.”
