Moshtix Guide To The Best Live Stream Gigs And Events
As the uptake of social distancing continues in this time of uncertainty, many artists from across the globe have taken to social media to give the fans what they want, streaming performances live from their living rooms.
The recent ban placed on public gatherings over 100 people have also sparked local venues, event organisers and promoters to take to the internet to help support fans and artists and tackle the unprecedented loss of revenue they're facing.
