The Live-Stream Weekly Round-Up: Week of 6/18
Though there is much uncertainty over when live events will return to the way we once knew them, we can at least keep dancing through the numerous music festival and artist live streams happening weekly. They may not provide the same experience as dancing in a sweaty and packed warehouse, but they do offer a way to keep us connected and allow us to hear new releases. This week’s curated roundup features everything from deep house to dubstep and techno to even meditation. Keep those festival vibes alive by checking out these upcoming live streams and signing up to be a Festival Ambassador.
