Virtual Concerts - the new normal for live music?

With the Coronavirus pandemic cancelling many live shows, artists are trying different ways to give fans the chance to watch live music but from the comfort of their home.

Virtual concerts are taking social media by storm with different artists playing nearly every night of the week!

The concerts that were changed from live to online on Talentbanq saw artists playing live stream gigs at Camden Chapel.

Eve, who has now been named the ‘Stream Queen’, is the marketing manager for Talenbanq and she thinks that live streamed concerts have brought musicians together: “I think the pandemic at the moment it has brought a sense of community and in the music industry especially as well.

“It’s very different to obviously playing live and some artists just struggle to get used to it and others are thriving with it so it’s working different for everyone but it’s the new normal now so that’s all we can do.”

The concerts that you can see on platforms such as Facebook and YouTube vary from rock music to classical music, to pop music and live DJ sets and it is all available to watch from the comfort of your own home!

Another virtual concert went ahead last weekend and aims to act like a festival but also gives viewers backstage access and Q&A’s with the artists.

Virtual Sounds included different stages, much like a festival with a range of artists involved.
