Recently, we have seen major artists, promoters and events organisers find relief in the digital world amidst the pandemic, with innovative online festivals and live streams galore.

Not only that, but we’ll offer an insight into how VR might be about to pick up momentum once more with some of the innovative events scheduled in the year ahead; you can then continue to escape the troubles of real life and watch your favourite electronic artists perform in the virtual world!
