Quarantined In Cyberspace: Attend This Local Music Fest From Home

Iowa City duo Cowpoke, pictured above, will play the Quarantined in Cyberspace festival on Saturday, April 18 at 6:30 p.m.

Those who find themselves missing festival season and the Iowa music scene are in luck this weekend. Quarantined in Cyberspace, a local music festival held on Facebook Live, will be streaming this weekend.

Iowa City musicians Jayce Nguyen, Katy Kelly, Aaron Longoria and Drew Demeny organized the virtual event. 


“We all know how boring and monotonous life in social distancing or quarantine has been,” Nguyen said. “Personally, live music is a frequent part of my life, whether it’s playing shows or going to them and supporting other artists. We wanted to create that feeling and space again, of being interactive with other artists.”

How to attend:

Fourteen Iowa musicians are lined up to play this two-day digital festival, which will stream from its Facebook event page. “If you can’t watch live, you’ll still be able to access the live videos that Facebook uploads after each stream,” Nguyen said.
