Last week JOOX announced the launch of the ‘#Gig2Earn’ initiative to support local musicians currently experiencing financial hardship through an inability to perform
‘#Gig2Earn’ invites them to stream directly to their fans via the JOOX live video streaming
feature – and get paid to do so.
JOOX now presents the ‘Big Live’ music-streaming concert series, as part of the same initiative, bringing big names in the music game to the JOOX app in aid of up-and-coming artists by creating awareness of the ‘#Gig2Earn’ initiative.
The first ‘Big Live’ concert will feature none other than Cassper Nyovest, this Friday 8th May 2020 at 8pm on JOOX.
The prominent rapper’s set will be free of charge to watch for all JOOX users, regardless of subscription status, as are all the other artist appearances in the ‘#Gig2Earn’ initiative.
Viewers watching at home who would like to contribute to ‘ #Gig2Earn ’ can do so by using the custom-made ‘tip jar’ in the JOOX app – just keep an eye out for it on the Discover page in-app this week.
This ‘tip jar’ works using BUSQR technology, so users can donate straight from the app
using a live donation solution. All funds will be shared directly among the artists who performed in that given week.
Tips over the Cassper Nyovest Big Live stream will also be donated to the #Gig2Earn artists.
