After hosting a successful livestream last month, Showdown Alaska is partnering with Anchorage Assembly member Christopher Constant to bring Alaskans together — social distancing style.

AK4AK, a virtual music festival, will raise money for the Food Bank of Alaska. The festival will take place May 1 from 6-10 p.m.

Performers include Blackwater Railroad Co., Medium Build, H3, DJ Spencer Lee, Emma Hill, Ava Earl, Jaybird Parkhurst and other local artists.

Hellen Payares and Raymond Flores are co-owners of Showdown Alaska, an independent concert production team. They have brought up a list of talent to Alaska, including Waka Flocka Flame, Diplo and Grieves.
