Lockdown Gig Guide – A Guide to Some Virtual Gigs
Published 8 months ago by

Lockdown has commenced but there’s DJ’s and artists keeping us virtually entertained.

With the 21-day lockdown in full swing, we cannot go out and have fun, so some artists and DJs are bringing the fun into our homes. 

We cannot shy away from the fact that we are social beings and crave social activities but in order to tackle this pandemic, self-isolation is crucial. 

While you stay at home during this 21-day lockdown, don’t get stuck up on your phone reading all the depressing stories, instead keep your spirits up and join a global community in enjoying the many concerts by some of the world’s most famous artists currently streaming online.
