On 29 October 2020, Metality launched a petition via the platform change.org in support of the many thousands of musicians in Germany who are already living at the subsistence level and who have been terribly hit by Corona.
We are campaigning for an unconditional base income of 1000 Euros per month. And not only for metalheads, but for all musicians in this country who want to live from their (dream) profession - and by the way, have paid their taxes for it for years and days.
You can read the full text of our petition here: https://www.change.org/p/bundesfinanzminister-olaf-scholz-grundeinkommen-f%C3%BCr-musiker-innen-jetzt where you can sign immediately.
BTW: With this petition we make ourselves heard for the first time also outside the metal scene. So please help us to make it a success and prove that we really are a loud network!

It has become a good tradition that after festivals and open air concerts everything in useable condition that metalheads have left behind is collected for charitable purposes. This often includes many sleeping mats, sleeping bags and tents. In the past these were given away to those who really need them.
This too has fallen victim to Corona this year. Because where no festival - there no sleeping bag! And suffering from this are once again the many homeless, who have been hit particularly hard anyway and who are now facing a harsh winter. We must not let that happen, metalheads!
