BENEFIT music festival 2018

BENEFIT, a Loudoun County music festival supporting local children in need, is seeking musicians for its 2021 event on September 18.

The event, which was moved online in 2020, will return to in-person and be held in multiple locations in downtown Leesburg, featuring original performances from regional musicians and bands.

Established in 2017, Bands Empowering Nonprofits with Engagement and Fundraising Improving Tomorrow (BENEFIT) is a coalition of musicians and community leaders uniting people with music to raise funds and awareness for nonprofits serving children in Loudoun County.

“BENEFIT’s Crossroads Music Festival is an event that is all about community,” Ara Bagdasarian, co-founder of BENEFIT, said in a prepared statement. “The festival will showcase original music by artists in our community while highlighting and raising funds for several community nonprofit organizations.”

Amy Bobchek, also a co-founder of the event, said the live music community is excited to perform again. 

“BENEFIT’s 2021 Crossroads Music Festival is an opportunity for musicians to give back to the community while being part of a festival that will put them in front of audiences safely and in support of nonprofit organizations in Loudoun," she said.

Musicians interested in joining BENEFIT and volunteering their time and musical talents at the 2021 Crossroads Music Festival event are encouraged to register online through the event website at
