Alongside more MainStreams like Liam of Dork’s Industry Lockdown Lowdown and celebrity sing alongs, there has been the recent Quarantunes day and our own #TwitterFestival round ups of so much goodness on line. Modern Age Music‘s ‘Front Room Live’ series on Instagram being a case in point.
Lockdown Land has a wealth of discovery with a front row seat. Inspired by community singing across balconies, music remains the only truth and we are #LivingTheStream
Following ourJanuary #FuturePicks collaboration with increasingly in-demand Louise Schofield (who is also the Modern Age / Pistonhead go grrrl, and much more!), this would have been the weekend of a follow up, but how fast the world changes – and we adapt!
“The fertile environment of interdependent music world; proof that being competitive raises the game – and being collaborative is for the real players” (from TheZineUK latest picture diary book)
The Balcony OnLine Music Festival gang were already collaborating on the future. i.e. hope we are ready to harvest this amazingness in September!
Stay tuned for what we all create next!
