Colorado Venues Are Going Red Tonight to Save Its Live Event Industry

The live events industry, among the hardest to be struck by the coronavirus, is hanging on by a thread. As among the primary businesses shut down — with millions of jobs lost because of restrictions on large scale parties and no national aid in sight — amusement destinations all over the nation, are taking it upon themselves to increase awareness of the struggle. Tonight, all over the nation and here in Colorado, venues, buildings and other constructions we are at risk of losing will light up from red to implore Congress to pass the RESTART ACT as soon as possible. The RESTART Act would offer economic relief to the ailing industry that has been held in limbo since March 2020. In addition, the movement is to encourage ExtendPUA.org in their efforts to expand and keep Pandemic Unemployment Assistance supplying relief to people who have lost job because of COVID-19.

From 9 p.m. to 12 a.m. on September 1, anticipate almost 1,500 live occasion buildings across the nation to light up in red. Having an estimated 96 percent — or as many as 12 million at the Live Events Industry now unemployed, furloughed, or undergoing a drastic loss of income — assistance has never been more crucial. Not to mention a number of the world’s biggest concert promoters reporting a 98% reduction of revenue since the onset of the pandemic, as well as the independent ones even more so.

Here from the Mile High City, 50 Colorado-based live event businesses, promoters, venues, and occasion specialists have come together to create the #WeMakeEvents #RedAlertRESTART initiative across the nation possible. Additionally, Boulder-based national nonprofit Conscious Alliance, working in conjunction with the initiatives will provide meals to employees in the Live Event Industry that have been displaced or unemployed by the outbreak.
