Dream Day Festival is a Live Aid-style concert benefiting the Dream Day Foundation whose mission is to support the social, emotional, physical and spiritual well-being of child refugees through the performing arts, including drama, music and dance.
The goal of Dream Day Festival is to raise enough money to establish the first formal music program at Zaatari refugee camp where 40,000 children currently reside. The plan is to use Zaatari as a pilot program that can be replicated in refugee camps in other countries such as Greece, Turkey, Lebanon, Iraq and Kenya.
The inaugural Dream Day Festival will be held on June 20, 2021 (World Refugee Day) in the ancient city of Jerash in a 2,000 year old greco-roman amphitheater. The Foundation will simultaneously produce a concert for the teens who reside in Zaatari refugee camp, most of whom have never seen a live concert before.
Dream Day Foundation has retained TKG | The Krim Group and iJordan to produce the Festival. TKG | The Krim Group has been connecting celebrities with causes for close to 20 years and has produced over 100 events worldwide. iJordan is one of the leading event producers in Jordan and has produced concerts for Sting, Enrique Iglesias and Bryan Adams.
Funds will be raised through individual and corporate donations. The main Festival will be live-streamed around the world via YouTube and Facebook where people can donate online.
Dream Day Foundation, a U.S.-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, has been established to collect funds for the Festival. The funds will be used to establish a formal music program in Zaatari refugee camp. Dream Day is an internal nonprofit project of GVNG.org, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. Donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. EIN: 81-2446261.
Dream Day is fortunate to have a distinguished Honorary Board that includes His Royal Highness Prince Ali Bin Al-Hussein, Ambassador Lina Annab, Jordan’s Ambassador to Japan and the former Minister of Tourism, and Maria Fernanda Espinosa, past President of the United Nations General Assembly. Active discussions are ongoing with multiple major artists to speak and perform at the Dream Day Festival.
