Top live streams for the lockdown

The dance music community unites to keep the world dancing.

Clubs, bars, restaurants, theatres and other public establishments may be temporarily closed, but thanks to the marvel of live streaming it's not all doom and gloom.

Dance music was founded on the industrious DIY aptitude of its founding fathers. No obstacle was too big back then, and so the case proves now. In spite of the uncertain times in which we find ourselves, one certainty is that the music will not stop.

Aided by the wonder of modern technology, today's modern stars have picked up the baton. You may have already seen Charlotte de Witte and Anna Tur last weekend or Erick Morillo and Jamie Jones earlier in the week.

The good news is that more live streams are right around the corner. Whilst we implement isolation and social distancing, here are the streams that will shed some light and entertainment into our housebound lives.
