Google has announced its own livestreamed music festival.

Titled GOODFest, the “first-of-its-kind” festival will take place in five different cities across the US, beginning in New York on November 29.

The festival will then continue in New Orleans on December 9 and Seattle on December 12. It will conclude with legs in San Francisco and Los Angeles on dates which have yet to be announced.

Google describes the festival’s ethos as follows: “GOODFest is a celebration of progress, positivity, and the power of people to push the world forward. In five livestreamed shows, we’re bringing together music, community, and technology to raise funds and connect people in the name of good.”

Glass Animals will headline the opening leg in New York City on November 29, while Gogol Bordello will headline the New Orleans leg and D.R.A.M. will headline the Seattle leg. Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Madame Gandhi and Shilpa Ray have also been confirmed for the New York City leg.
