We’re not getting Coachella this spring, but wait ’till you see the line-up for the digital festival HomeFest!
It’s looking like that flower crown may be of use after all. James Corden is hosting an online music festival called Homefest: James Corden’s Late Late Show Special since his talk show is currently on hiatus amid the coronavirus outbreak. A number of notable artists are slated to perform from across the globe including “sets” from Bille Eilish and Finneas, Dua Lipa, John Legend, Andrea Bocelli, and K-Pop band BTS!
Corden says that the festivities will be hosted from his garage in Los Angeles and that in addition to the performances, HomeFest will share public health guidelines about the pandemic as well as encourage viewers to donate to a few non-profits. He also plans to chat with big names in entertainment like Will Ferrell and David Blaine — all from their own homes, of course!
“Since The Late Late Show came off the air, we have been thinking of different ways to try and make a show at this time,” said Late Late Show executive producers Ben Winston and Rob Crabbein a joint statement. “With the help of some wonderful guests, we are going to try to put on the best show we can, to entertain, raise awareness, raise money and hopefully lift spirits. Shooting from James’ garage may be far from perfect, but under the circumstances, we hope it can help someone, somewhere, who needs some cheer right now.”
HomeFest will air/be available for streaming on CBS platforms on March 30 at 10 p.m.
