Insomniac Rewind (24/7)
Pasquale Rotella and his team are making quarantine a little more bearable with their 24/7 Insomniac Rewind livestream. Tune in to Insomniac’s YouTube or Twitch at any time to relive highlights from EDC Las Vegas, Orlando and Mexico, Hard Summer and Okeechobee.
Trance trio Above & Beyond’s label Anjunabeats is kicking off Monday with 3LAU, before Gabriel & Dresden play the “first ever all G&D music set” in the middle of the week. You can catch all of the sets on Anjunabeats’ Twitch channel.
United We Stream
Organised by Club Commission Berlin and Reclaim Club Culture, United We Stream goes live several days a week from different clubs around Berlin. Throughout the streams, viewers can donate to the rescue fund for clubs facing financial difficulties, with 8% also going to the Foundation Fund for Civilian Sea Rescue.
As a reaction to the closing of all Berlin clubs and to the rest of the world being in quarantine, Berlin is showing its support and solidarity by bringing the biggest possible digital club to your home. -United We Stream

LA-based producer LSDream is keeping calm during lockdown with his livestream meditation sessions every Monday, where he plays more ambient and soundbath music. On the other end of the spectrum, this Friday he’ll be livening things up with R.A.V.E Cave, where you’re encouraged to turn out the lights, turn up the speakers and turn your room into a “radical audio visual experience”.

On Thursday (April 16), CRAY will be raising money for MusiCares' COVID-19 relief fund by means of a 12-hour virtual music festival on live.bandsintown.com. In a stark contrast to other events, Net.Werk will feature a lineup made up entirely out of women and LGBTQ+ artists, such as Adam&Steve, Krewella, Ducky, Sophie (of SOFI TUKKER) and Whipped Cream. The event goes live at 12:00 pm PDT.
Deadbeats House Party
Every Sunday, Wednesday and Friday, Canadian duo Zeds Dead hosts their Deadbeats House Party on Twitch and Youtube. This week’s lineup will feature DJ sets from up-and-coming producers GG Magree and CHEE, as well as a lesson on production from X&G.
Lost Lands Couch Lands
With public gatherings totally off the cards, Excision is coming to the rescue by streaming a three-day virtual festival which features entire sets from the 2019 edition of Lost Lands, on April 17-19. In a post on Twitter, Excision said that overlapping times usually means they can only broadcast partial sets, so this marks the first time that all Lost Lands sets will be streamed in full. Catch Lost Lands Couch Lands here.
The Prototypes 24 Hour Livestream
On Friday April 17, 7pm UK time (11 am PDT), British drum and bass team The Prototypes (made up of Chris Garvey and Nick White) will be raising their money for the UK’s National Health Service with a 24-hour drum & bass and jungle set. Fans are encouraged donate money to ‘NHS Charities Together’, with the target set at £2,500.00.
After the success of their first edition, Beatport’s is bringing ReConnect back in the hope they can raise more money for the AFEM (Association for Electronic Music) and COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for WHO. Starting Friday, 8pm GMT on Twitch, ReConnect will be a 36-hour livestream marathon featuring a stacked lineup of DJs, including CLAPTONE, Kaskade, Hot Since 82, Maceo Plex and more.
