Barnett said she was inspired to do “Here and There” after hosting and curating Sonic City, a festival in Belgium, back in 2019. She curated the lineup for the two-day festival, and later hosted her own event for Valentine’s Day in 2020.

“Curating Sonic City was such a joy. I watched some incredible music that day. Sasami, Hachiku, Joan As Policewoman, Beverly Glenn-Copeland and so much more,” she said in a release. “I was completely mesmerized, I remember looking around the room and wondering how it could have possibly all come together so perfectly.”
