UNDENIABLY EPIC VIRTUAL GIGS YOU CAN’T MISS
Music makes the world go round.
We know that nothing will ever beat that feeling of pure euphoria at a music concert or festival. Where you’re dancing with complete strangers, your body is totally controlled by the beat of the music and you’re singing every word at the top of your lungs. We too, still have vivid flashbacks when our favourite song comes on and are guilty of repeating the story of that wild weekend way back, one too many times.
Don’t fret, we have good news! That connection, that music buzz you’re searching for is waiting for you online. There are so many live gigs, in literally all the genres, that we are sure your music mecca is awaiting. Here are our suggestions to keep you busy for the next few weeks!
HONEY, YOU BETTER MARK YOUR CALENDAR
UNITED WE STREAM
When: Events are scheduled regularly each month.
After it’s launch in Australia back in June, Australia has been getting jiggy every few weeks with United We Stream gigs from Sydney, to Western Australia, to Berlin. A culturally diverse platform focused on spreading the love through the best in electronic music, strikes again this weekend in Brighton, UK. With new gigs regularly posted, be sure to follow United We Stream for other events popping up over the globe.
When: Stream live sets on their website periodically each week.
If you haven’t heard of Brissy’s local live streaming venue The Quivr yet, then we think you have been missing out! Lucky for you though, you can rewatch (and rewatch again!) performances from BrisVegas DJs and musicians anytime of the day on their Facebook, Mixcloud or Soundcloud.
HILLS FOLK MUSIC - FIELD & FOREST RECORDINGS
When: Friday 02 Oct, Saturday 03 Oct & Sunday 04 Oct at 7pm
Adelaide Hills is bringing the goods this October long weekend, with a lush live stream experience as part of the annual Nature Festival. Local musicians Anya Anastasia, Andrew McNicol and Alex Harris have pre-recorded their one hour sessions in their favourite natural environments, so you can be sure to be feeling calm and peppy after tuning into this event. Be sure to register, so you don’t forget this wonderful opportunity.
DEAR SOUL MUSIC CO - UNPLUGGED + LIVE
When: Every 3rd Friday, 9am
Unplugged + Live is a unique treat, direct from North Carolina, USA. Hosted by American soul performer, Arsena Schroeder, you can expect handpicked, independent artists at this virtual concert series. Make sure you don’t miss out by registering at Eventbrite, today!
IN CASE YOU MISSED IT
Climate Fridays is music with a cause. Creators Green Music Australia and School Strike 4 Climate not only raise awareness about environmental issues around the country but also present mind-blowing shows too. While the first two seasons have called it a wrap, you can still access most episodes on the SS4C Facebook page.
THE STATE OF MUSIC
Settle into the weekend a little easier with local music for your Fri-YAY! Victoria Together launched a second series of The State of Music, after the success of the first episodes showcased back in May. The platform highlights up and coming Victorian musicians, as well as our favourite Aussie artists. If you missed this awesome gig, you can rewatch all episodes as many times as your heart's content.
CREAMFIELDS HOUSE PARTY
Feeling like an all nighter or partying well into Monday morning? Well, baby we got you! While the legendary UK music festival, Creamfields was canned because of Corona a few weeks ago, that didn’t stop them hosting a wild couple of days of virtual electronic bangers - which are still totally accessible from their Facebook page. Not everyday you get a chance to just pop on over to the UK for an unforgettable live experience, so live it up!
YOUTUBE TO CATCH UP ON
Jumping on board very early in the piece, Passenger recorded 10 episodes for his Isolation Live Streams posted to YouTube every few weeks. It’s hard not to feel the positivity enter your entire body with the beautiful and raw songs presented on a platform for all. So, if you haven’t already, we beg you to go back and watch them all!
Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, Yay, Yay, Yay! This weekend, why not dabble on the Delivered Live YouTube page, with so many flashbacks from their first and second season. With killer performances by Emma Donovan and the Putbacks, Killing Heidi, and your soon to be favourite discovered artists, your downtime is covered! Feeling a little more party mode, purchase tickets for an at home concert with some of the best Australian and international artists direct from their website.
Catch up on the best of the best with Elton’s Classic Concert Series. Jump back in time to watch The Rocket Man himself perform at Sydney Entertainment Centre in 1986 (scary to think some of us hadn’t even been born yet!) or why not experience some of Brazil, Scotland or Turkey. With almost 30 clips in the series, of course we totally recommend bingeing them all!
