Now that we’ve all come to accept our fate that we probably won’t see a live event happen for a while now, it’s time to embrace the wonderful world of online streaming.
No matter what, we’ll always find a way to have a good time even if it means not leaving your bedroom for weeks on end.
Here’s a rundown of the hottest online events you can stream from your computer this weekend…
Friday, 1st May
1. Sound Salon and G7 TV sessions from Ta’ Qali Stadium
Sound Salon and G7 have teamed up with the Malta Football Association to bring you the first-ever edition of TV Sessions featuring some of Malta’s top DJs streaming from none other than Malta’s home of football, the Ta’ Qali stadium!
An unusual collaboration but these are unusual times, tune in from 3pm onwards for one unique experience!
Pandemic or not, everyone loves a good educational quiz. Two government teachers, Ryan Caruana and Maria Laura Fenech, have set up a Facebook page known as Corokwiżż to keep everyone entertained during these tough times and upload a quiz every day at 7pm with 40 questions ranging from general info to geography, arts sports, history and culture.
And it’s all free! So what are you waiting for, it’s time to quiz up this weekend!
Local DJ Joseph Armani along with his son Denzel Jo will be live-streaming a set this Friday between 4pm and 7pm to raise awareness, funds and goods for those in need during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Music and charity come together for an evening dedicated to a good cause – a food aid project for disadvantaged families who have been hit worse by the pandemic.
DJ Joseph Armani and his son will be live on Facebook and Xarabank where they’ll be spinning the decks as people call in to donate – get involved!
4. Lockdown sesh
Stay home, stay safe and keep the party going. Local DJ Melkim G will be live-streaming a set from his studio where he’ll be showcasing a set of techno classics for you to enjoy all night long.
5. Buzz for a cause
Looking out for one another is the best thing we can do right now. A local club is uniting with artists for a Facebook live event to help raise funds for Marvin Schembri’s initiative to help families affected by COVID-19.
The event will be streamed from The Echo club in Sliema and will feature Nigel C and Tobymusic Productions.
