The Shift Network has announced The Shift Summit & Music Festival, set to begin on September 18th and lead up to the International Day of Peace, September 21st, 2020. The 4-day event combines top-tier musicians and renowned thought leaders throughout society, focused on building a better future, including Deepak Chopra, Marianne Williamson, Jane Goodall, Rep. Tim Ryan, Bill McKibben, Michael Franti, Rising Appalachia, Deva Premal and Miten, Nattali Rize, and many more.  The Shift Summit & Music Festival will be available globally across multiple stages via streaming platform PORTL.

2020 has required adaptability across nearly all sectors of society and industry, notably pushing large scale conferences and major festivals into uncharted territories. Innovative solutions have allowed room for creative innovation and a chance to reevaluate the status quo. The Shift Network CEO, Stephen Dinan notes, “We saw the need for an event that brought together as many visionaries as possible who can light the way forward and uplift people to make the major changes we need - The Shift. It's an upgrade to the human operating system to one that is peaceful, sustainable, healthy, and prosperous. Out of the breakdowns of this year can emerge a breakthrough.”

Sticking to the theme of global uplift and planning for a transformed future, the annual Shift Summit has added a concurrent music festival featuring an impressive lineup of artists to the summit's slate of trendsetting thought leaders. Bringing the event online adds accessibility to visionary, groundbreaking ideas - a reimagining of what global conferences can be during the era of COVID. Practical gameplans for positive change over the next decade will be presented on Monday September 21st

The Shift Summit & Music Festival will integrate spirituality, healing, positive impacts, yoga, music, and visionary keynote speakers into an immersive and interactive online experience.
