As festival season has come to a halt, many ravers are heartbroken from the cancellations and rescheduling of major festivals and countless artist’s tours, leaving us to rave from the safety of our homes.
Fortunately, through these times of isolation, some of our favorite artists have come together to bring us EDM live streams so we can headbang, shuffle, and still rock that bangin' rave outfit, all from the comfort our living rooms.
Below is a guide to a few EDM festival live streams, as well as individual artist streams that you can watch on Youtube or Twitch to get your daily source of EDM in until we can return to PLUR-ing in person.

Minecraft Festival: Disciple Block Party 2
This bass-heavy lineup took place on a custom Minecraft server and can be found on Youtube and Twitch. Virtual Riot, 12th Planet, and other bass junkie DJs slammed down heavy beats for over six hours each day of the two-day festival while we watched a pixelated rave go on in the Minecraft universe. This virtual rave gave a different outlook on live streaming sets and I would recommend it if you are looking for a different kind of rave scene!
Slander: The Eye Worldwide Livestream
Slander’s tour was cut short due to the current pandemic, but the trap and bass duo did not let that stop them from providing a fire and laser filled show for their fans. The full hour and a half set of The Eye tour live from LA was uploaded for all to enjoy and include lots of headbanging, uplifting melodies, live singing, and a brand new Slander collaboration with NGHTMRE.
While we all miss live sets and raving with our loved ones, do your best to stay positive and spread PLUR in this time of social distancing (if you need to go out in public, check out these brand new face masks and seamless bandanas to help protect you out in the elements). In our experience, it helps boost our mood to get fully glammed out for the rave! Check out these looks inspired by our #RaveatHome series!
Don't feel like getting fully glammed out for the rave? If you need something comfy AND cute to wear while you watch live streams, check out our Cute & Cozy collection like features adorable outfits like this:
I hope these virtual raves make your isolation a little bit less boring and help your love for EDM culture grow!
