23 airports hosting 1 big music festival May 6

Airports are really lonely and miss serving as the front doors to their cities.

So they’re working hard to stay in touch with their communities with updates on their Covid-19 responses, of course, but also with educational and cultural activities.

Case in point: 23 North American airports are joining together on Wednesday, May 6 to host the JetStream Music Festival.

The online event celebrates local music from each of the host cities and kicks off at 5 p.m. CST on May 6 on each of the participating airports’ Facebook Live.

Here’s how the JetStream Music Festival will work:

Each airport will feature a 10-minute set from a local musician.

Each musician will have a virtual tip jar so you can contribute during the stream.

Here’s the lineup:

  • Gina Chavez – Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS)
