Virgin EMI are launching Lockdown Live, a unique “live” music experience put together in support of Global Citizen and the World Health Organisation (WHO)’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.
Lockdown Live takes the form a three day live-streamed music festival, with the aim to encourage everyone to stay indoors and provide entertainment and light relief in these uncertain times.
32 acts (across pop, alternative and dance music) will perform over three days from their homes, with each performance live streamed at www.lockdownlive.uk.
The Festival starts this weekend on the 3rd of April with the Rhapsody Stage supported by VT at Jungle Creations. The line-up features an array of modern pop’s most influential stars including HRVY, The Vamps, Alessia Cara, Jay Pryor and is headlined by the almighty SG Lewis.
Day 2 will showcase talent from the Alternative scene on the Fools Gold Stage. The eclectic line-up includes the soulful singer/songwriters Lily Moore and Olivia Dean, the high-octane rock sound of Twin Atlantic and the anthemic, synth pop of Vera Blue.
The third and final day will see the action coming from the virtual Encore Stage, supported by Seasoned at Buzzfeed UK. The Encore stage will feature some of the hottest talent in urban music, both from the UK and internationally, giving everyone some perfect Sunday vibes. From the smooth R’N’B of Duchess and Maya B, to the high-energy rap of Wauve and the affirming highlife stylings of headliner, Adekunle Gold.
Lockdown Live will take place at www.lockdownlive.uk from the 4th April to the 6th, 2020.
