The Kōkua Festival is back and bigger than ever before. Held in celebration of music and environmental awareness between 2004 and 2010, getting to the festival previously meant having to find a way to get down to Honolulu. However, Kōkua Festival 2020 is bringing the event worldwide with a livestream that's set to be hosted right from Jack Johnson's front porch later today.

Today's livestream is set to last for two hours and will feature live performances from musicians like Ben Harper, G.Love, Ziggy Marley, Jack Johnson of course, and several others. You'll even be treated to home cooking lessons from some of Hawaiʻi's top chefs, Ed Kenney and Mark Noguchi.

The festival has always served as a fundraiser for the Kōkua Hawaiʻi Foundation, a non-profit organization that supports environmental education in schools and communities of Hawaiʻi. Donations made during the livestream will benefit not only the foundation but also local COVID-19 relief efforts across the state.
