On February 22, Erick the Architect will host a first-of-its-kind virtual festival on his Twitch channel. Future Proof Fest will feature live performances and beat-making, meditation, live art, merch drops, exclusive remixes/covers and more; a 4-hour interactive event of positivity and creativity, all on the theme of how to “future proof” yourself to be the best you.  

Watch the trailer here: 

Erick launched his solo project debut in January with Future Proof, a 5-song EP written as he processed the catastrophic events of last year. Out of his anger, fear and frustration came the realization that we must better ourselves to face the inevitable challenges that lie ahead. Part free-wheeling music fest, part self-improvement workshop, Erick envisioned this festival to explore these ideas in a novel, experiential way, inviting the world to be better alongside him. Future Proof has been covered by Complex, Hypebeast, High Snobiety, the Fader, XXL, NPR Music, Brooklyn Vegan and beyond, and features Loyle Carner, Col3trane, FARR, Sophie Faith, Linden Jay and Pip Millett.    

Listen to "I Can't Lose": 

Future Proof Fest will take place live on Monday 2.22 and will start at 2:22PM ET. The event will include:

*Performance: Erick will perform Future Proof live from a soundstage

*Art: Live streamed art creation and timelapse videos from Erick’s friends in the artist community and fans

*Meditation: A sound bath of ambient sounds and visuals

“Let It Go” Remixes: Erick will be playing remixes created by fans of Erick’s song “Let It Go.” 


Future Proof Fest has evolved naturally out of Erick’s Architect Corner late night livestream sessions on Twitch, which he hosts 3 times a week and has hundreds of fans tuning in each night to share in Erick’s creative journey.
