Most of our everyday lives and movement has been disrupted by Covid-19. Almost everyone is either in self-isolation or going through some kind of a lockdown. Therefore, it’s possible to expect lots of music events to be cancelled or pushed to a later date.
Of course, lots of festivals such as Stagecoach, Coachella, Bonnaroo, Summerfest to the Beale Street Music Festival among others have decided to continue in fall. While others have been cancelled such as Firefly or Ultra Music Festival, you might not have to wait for the fall or next year to join a rave event from the comfort of your own home while staying socially distant.
There are music events that have refused to let Covid-19 stop them through live streaming and keeping the rave spirit alive. You can actually satisfy your live music craving and join in live with thousands or millions of music lovers around the world.
So how are they keeping the rave up, hot and going? How do you prepare for one?
Diverse picks for everyone
For the last few weeks live music events across the United States and around the world have picked up speed. With so many choices to select from, show cancellations will be of less a concern. For instance, Global Dance Festival may be canceled, but they have announced a two-day live stream event presented as Global Dance Digital Festival. Some of the biggest heavy-bass artists in trap and bass music will be featured, such as Big Gigantic and QUIX.
Another fest that has been keeping the rave up and going is the Concert a Day live stream by Pickathon that started around April 8. For weeks, Pickathaon has been using the undisputed power of great music to support musicians and entertain fans while encouraging mental health and bringing hope with free daily concerts running between April 8 and early June. An Indie rave of its own kind, artists such as Tyler Childers, Margo Price, Thee Oh Sees, and Mac DeMarco, among others such as Jeff Tweedy have featured.
Radiohead have been keeping their fans distracted with weekly posts on YouTube from their past shows, such as their iconic April 2012 Coachella Fest appearance. If you’ve missed any you can actually catch up leisurely at home.
DJs such as French master mixer Bob Sinclair have been offering live daily streams on Facebook where rave clothing, loud attires and top-music mixes are the range. With an archive of past live streams you can actually view what you’ve missed. Dance music labels such as Defected Records have also been up and raving with virtual fests featuring dancers and DJ streams.
