Time Out says

On the first afternoon of the year, a curated lineup of 150 of the city’s best poets, artists and performers usually gather together at St. Marks Church to recite their work for a hall full of attendees. This year, the show will still go on only virtually on a 24, hour livestream. Get in touch with your feelings and those of others by hearing voices from all walks of life and support the NYC community. The plus to it going virtual? This year there will be more talent on deck than ever before. You can soak up work from more than 500 writers, artists, musicians, and dancers. (Only 150 people will be allowed in the Sanctuary at any one time). The event kicks off at 11pm on NYE, the broadcast will take you into New Year’s Day with DJ sets, cooking demos, and more virtual fun.
