World Concert Day was the global music event from Music Aid International that raised funds for the World Health Organization's Covid-19 Solidarity Response Fund, local hospices and many other causes during the Covid-19 Pandemic years. It was live on every April 26th in 2020, 2021 and 2022 with participating artists supporting and fundraising for UNICEF The United Nations Children´s Emergency Fund, The Breathe Life Campaign, Amazon Watch, Doctors Without Borders, Save The Children, the British National Health Service NHS, and the Covid-19 Solidarity Response Fund. The event also showcased and raised funds for many local charities, causes, hospices and community projects. Below is a montage of some of the many artists who participated in World Concert Day.
It was intended that the event would only run during the Covid Pandemic years and there is no event this year in 2023. But a number of artists and organizations are now asking if the event can be brought back in future years and have expressed interest in taking part or staging something similar. If you have any thoughts on this contact us or leave comments on Music Aid International´s Facebook or Twitter pages.

In the years 2020, 2021 and 2022 , April 26 was a day for musicians, artists and fans to support causes they care about. During these three years there was an emphasis on UNICEF, health issues, children´s charities, war victims and local charity projects and hospices. On this day fans shared their favorite artists, artists performed live and promoted their releases, activists campaigned for a cause, fundraisers supported local charities and hospices and people around the world organized concerts and streamed live performance from kitchens, gardens, living rooms and music studios.
