Livestream: Bang on a Can Marathon (Round 3)


Welcome to The Road to Sound for our Bang on a Can Marathon Watch party! Join us here from 3pm — 9pm on Sunday, August 16 to experience the third Bang on a Can marathon of the summer.

These 6-hour live streamed marathons of back-to-back performances keep live music going, even as social distancing requires us to vacate concert halls. The Road to Sound watch parties are a space for you to enjoy music and talk about it with other new music lovers across the country and globe. Please feel free to join the conversation in the chat box above. For more information about the marathons, please visit

Please be respectful of all people when joining the conversation. Any hateful rhetoric will be removed.
