The Grapevine: Merpire Recaps Local Virtual Music Festival Isol-Aid
The list of gig closures, cancellations, and postponements goes on and on, with no end in sight... Last weekend, however, even if one had to isolate, there was, at least, Isol-Aid, a virtual music festival that took place over Instagram, bringing some much needed joy.
Featuring over 70 acts playing 20-minute sets, Isol-Aid was a resounding success. Dylan speaks to Melbourne artist Merpire, one of the co-organisers, about the festival, the importance of music, their new single “Heavy Feeling”, and – yes – the plans for a second Isol-Aid, set to happen next weekend. Get on board!
