The Together We Vibe virtual music event will be providing numerous reasons for people to party in social distanced safety this New Year's Eve.
The nine-hour musical event is being put on as part of the Unity Concert Series and will be presented free by the Hard Rock Cafe. It will feature Snoop Dogg in his high-style selector alter-ego DJ Snoopadelic along with Jordin Sparks, Estelle and Grandmaster Flash as the headliners.
Tickets for the Together We Vibe stream are free, though there's also an option to donate to the event's chosen cause, the Community Healing Gardens. Started in 2015, Community Healing Gardens is a non-profit organization that provides free vegetables and herbs for low-income communities in Watts, Compton and other areas in Southern California. The organization also gives workshops on urban farming and healthy food choices.

DJ Snoopadadelic - West Coast 12:00 AM PT / 3 AM ET
Jordin Sparks Mountain Time 11:00 PM PT / 2 AM ET
