Bookstock 2020, is an online books and music festival spearheaded by Eddy Nix, musician and owner of Driftless Books and Music in Viroqua, Wis.. The special event will run this weekend, May 15-17, with the goal of celebrating musicians and independent bookstores while raising money for both.
Indie booksellers, authors and musicians are all invited to participate. Musicians can record individual songs or entire sets, while authors and booksellers can record messages about their own or their favorite bookstores. Messages by and about specific bookstores will be played between sets during the festival, and participating indies are encouraged to try to team up with local musicians. Donations will go directly to participating bookstores and musicians. For more information and to participate as a bookstore, musician, author, or artist click here.
