Many artists and event organizers are taking to social media to live stream gigs and parties to keep us all entertained while we practicing self-distancing.
No dress code, long lines for the bathroom, or hoping your mate doesn't throw up in the Uber ride home. Now we can all tune in together right from our living rooms, crack open a beer and continue the dance with fans all over the world.
This is the kind of community spirit we love to see, whilst supporting the artists we love, and fighting the effects of isolation.
Here's a selection of upcoming events happening throughout the next week, we'll be keeping this list updated over the coming weeks so keep checking back!
