With dancefloors around the world temporarily shut off from the public, it might seem like club culture is on hold for the moment. Luckily, some bright sparks in the community have teamed up to put on a series of virtual concerts this weekend. With shows catered to specific genres and global regions, there really is something for everyone, so join us as we take a look at what's on offer.
Defected Virtual Festival at Ministry of Sound
Our friends at Defected know how to through a great party, so when they approached us about doing a virtual festival live from our London club, we jumped at the chance. Tune in tomorrow from midday to see a full 12-hour program of the very best in house and disco, broadcast from our DJ booth to your home.
United We Stream from Berlin
Four of Berlin's most vital clubs have joined together for a special series of virtual events. Starting on Thursday evening the series will live stream sets from each club from 19:00 to midnight CET. Kicking off at Tresor, we'll be treated to sets by Delta Funktionen, Headless Horseman LIVE and Minimal Violence. Friday moves to Kater Blau, Saturday Alte Münze before winding up at Griessmuehle with Ellen Allien on Sunday.
