The City of Detroit is partnering with fashion label Detroit VS Everybody by Tommey Walker to present the Everybody Vs COVID-19 Unity Festival on May 29th and May 30th.

In efforts to continue the fight against the spread of COVID-19 and raise awareness about the importance of the 2020 Census, this two-day festival will include more than 20 musical acts and appearances including Big Sean, Mayer Hawthorne, Sada Baby, DJ D Nice, La Britney, Gmac Cash and many more Detroit grown and affiliated artists.

The Unity Festival will offer hours of in-home entertainment while also promoting safety measures of COVID-19 and encouraging Detroiters to take 10 minutes to fill out the census, which will impact citywide services for all Detroiters. Musical acts will be streamed live on the city’s Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram starting at 7 pm each day and concluding around 10 p.m.

The Everybody VS COVID-19 Awareness Campaign and Unity Festival are made possible by support from philanthropic partners including The Skillman Foundation, Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan, The Ford Foundation, The Kresge Foundation, Ralph C. Wilson Jr. Foundation, and The Knight Foundation.

“It is vital that we help each other stay safe each day, but don’t forget that completing the 2020 Census helps all Detroiters have the financial resources we need for years to come,” said Mariam Noland, president of the Community Foundation. “Everyone can participate. It is your right.”
