A big night out may be off the cards, but DJs and musicians will keep the party going this bank holiday weekend by livestreaming into our homes
Livestreaming from the homes of bands and DJs around the UK, DIY magazine is hosting a virtual festival from Friday to Sunday (2pm-10pm BST). It follows on from popular streaming project, DIYsolation (which continues Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays), and has been organised in aid of the Help Musicians charity, with a call for donations to support acts affected by the numerous live events being postponed and cancelled. Live sets and activities will come from over 20 artists performing from their homes, including Pale Waves, Marika Hackman, Metronomy’s Anna Prior, Sports Team, and there’s a pub quiz with Peace. Other highlights include the sassy Self Esteem (AKA Rebecca Lucy Taylor, formerly of Slow Club), 90s Club Kid vibes from Lynks Afrikka, and punk rockers Creeper reading spooky bedtime stories. Tinnies and glitter optional.
