Starring DJ EZ, Carl Cox, Nina Kraviz, Chris Liebing, Todd Terry and more
With clubs shutting down all over the world due to coronavirus, more and more DJs, labels and clubs and clubs are turning to live streams as a way of keeping the masses entertained during lockdown – as we're sure you've noticed!
So here are some of the best to check out this weekend…
Who: Folamour, Karizma, Melé, Riva Starr, more TBA
When: Tonight from 6pm
What: Defected are hosting another live-streaming event following the runaway success of last week's "virtual festival", which was streamed from Ministry of Sound. Post-lockdown, this second event will see the DJs involved streaming sets from their own homes or studios. They're also asking everyone who tunes in (and can afford it) to make a donation to the World Health Organisation's COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.
Who: Carl Cox, A-Trak, Bonobo, Chris Liebing, Tood Terry, UMEK, Waze & Odyssey B2B Gorgon City, Eats Everything, Nina Kraviz, Axel Borman, Sebastian Léger, Nastia, BLOND:ISH, Duke Dumont and more
When: Tonight from 9pm
What: ReConnect is a 24-hour live-streaming event being hosted by Beatport Live and starring an array of A-list DJ talent. As with Defected's event, donations to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund are encouraged.
Who: DJ EZ
When: Tomorrow from 6pm
What: UK garage legend and all-round good egg DJ EZ is doing another 24-hour marathon DJ session. He's done a couple previously in aid of charities but this one's just for fun… and to encourage people to stay home!
Watch: On Boiler Room, where you'll also find a load of other streams from a wide variety of other DJs who are currently in isolation
Who: Neill Landstrumm, Fabrizio Rat, Enrico Sangiuliano, LOTS more
When: Right now!
What: Milan nightclub The Temple Of Lost Future have invited a host of DJs from across Italy and beyond to join them – one at a time, of course! – in attempting to break the world record for the longest-ever continuous mix session. At time of writing they've been going about a week already, so only another a week to go… the record is 240 hours, but the Milanos are aiming for 340. The event isn't actually streamed live, but instead is being uploaded to YouTube in four-hour chunks.
