As the UK prepares for its second weekend in social isolation, and the first in official lockdown, it's important to keep the spirit of dance music alive until we can all be together again.

Below we've selected some of the very best streaming offerings to keep you dancing this weekend.

Defected Virtual Festival 2.0

And we go again! Building on the success of our 12-hour team up last week, which attracted over 1 million viewers and made it on BBC News, Channel 4 News, The Evening Standard and many more. Do to the UK's new lockdown measures, this time around the DJs will be streaming live from their living rooms, but the vibes will be high regardless.

This week you can enjoy selections from Folamor, Karizma, Melé, Riva Starr, Simon Dunmore and more TBA.


You can once again tune in on Defected's YouTube and Facebook channels.
