People Are Having Parties In Their Bedrooms As World's Biggest Clubs Play Live Sets

The clubs are closed, the bars are shut and we cannot leave our homes unless it's for essential reasons - but, it's still the weekend.

And luckily, there's plenty of live streams happening, with some of the world's biggest clubs hosting virtual club nights.

Social distancing and lockdown measures introduced over the last couple of weeks have seen all events cancelled across the country, in a bid to stop the spread of COVID-19. But who said we can't hit the dance floor in our very own homes? With members of our household only, of course...

A selection of clubs, DJs and artists across the globe are hosting sets, parties and even 'festivals' that you can tune into digitally. It all started this week, but with a huge chunk of the world in lockdown right now, we can be expecting plenty more in the days and weeks to come.

For example, just last weekend, Stockholm-based label, Studio Barnhus, hosted a 12-hour live DJ set with Axel Boman, Kornél Kovács and Pedrodollar. It's now up on the label's YouTube channel for anyone who wants a listen this weekend.

Meanwhile, Charlie XCX hosted a 30-minute set at 'Club Quarantine' yesterday - a virtual party launched for the LGBTQ community on Zoom in Toronto.

The club opens its doors (digitally, of course) every night between 1am and 4am (GMT).

Over in the UK, the Ministry of Sound has launched virtual festivals via the Houseparty app, from 1pm-7pm every Friday.

"After working tirelessly all week to bring you another Friday session of house music, we're very happy to announce our latest line-up," they wrote on Instagram today.

"Bringing you a mixture of brand new sets, classic moments and unreleased exclusive sets. We've added post-production to all of the sets to bring them to life and make it another special #virtualfestival."

The most recent line up included Purple Disco Machine, Melé, Horse Meat Disco, Karizma, Riva Starr and Folamour.

In the US, music venue Holocene in Portland is hosting live streams every Friday and Saturday night, featuring '90s and '00s classics.

Streaming between 8pm and 11pm, it's not so ideal for UK listeners, as Portland are seven hours behind Brits, but you could still tune in if you're up partying in the living room at 3am.

Ever since lockdown began, DJ Diplo has been hosting a two-hour set each night at 2am, which you can tune into on his YouTube channel.

And if you don't fancy clubbing in your kitchen, but you would like to listen to a live performance, we have something for you, too. With *so* many gigs and concerts having been cancelled due to COVID-19, there's a range of artists hosting live sets on their channels.

On Saturday 28th March, Christine and the Queens will be performing on Instagram at 5pm, while Zak Abel will be on at 6pm.

With lockdown continuing for the next couple of weeks at least, it's expected more and more artists will be heading to their platforms to share some digital performances. More news as it comes - but for now, enjoy your wild club night, guys!
