Leading producers of top rock and metal festivals, Danny Wimmer Presents have launched a new online series, “Offstage with DWP,” that will feature several top artists.
All the exclusive performances, interviews and acoustic sets will be streamed on DWP’s YouTube, Facebook and Twitch channels, DWP said.
The launch of the series last Friday featured a full headline set from Metallica, performed at the MAPFRE Stadium in Columbus, Ohi,o in 2017.
“The upcoming weeks will feature songs from the Foo Fighters‘ headline set at Sonic Temple 2019, acoustic performances from Tim McIlrath of Rise Against, Lzzy Hale & Joe Hottinger of Halestorm, a mixology session with Fletcher Dragge of Pennywise, and so much more,” according to a statement from the producers.
The episodes will also feature interviews with Jacoby Shaddix of Papa Roach, Brent Smith of Shinedown, Randy Blythe of Lamb of God, and Taylor Momsen of The Pretty Reckless. The series will also feature several never before seen festival performances and lifestyle segments as well.
Several DWP festivals, including Louder Than Life, Sonic Temple Art + Music Festival, Hometown Rising Country Music & Bourbon Festival, Aftershock and Bourbon & Beyond, among others, have been either postponed or canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“Like so many other live event producers, we have been severely impacted by COVID-19,” DWP Chief Marketing Officer Chamie McCurry said in a statement. “We miss our festival experience and we know our fans do too, so we wanted to take this opportunity to offer some unique and original content rooted in our rock and roll lifestyle.”
“This is just the beginning of Offstage with DWP. While we can’t wait to see you all, and celebrate our love of the live experience with everyone, we know Offstage with DWP will fill the void until we meet again! Stay safe, well and rock on,” a release from DWP says.
