Concerting From Home: Online Shows and Festivals To See During Quarantine!

It is not surprising that many people have had to adapt their routines due to the new coronavirus preventive quarantine. Musical artists, for example, were faced with the postponement and, in some cases, cancellation of their shows as a protective measure to prevent the spread of the disease. This, of course, saddened many fans. However, it didn’t take long for a viable alternative to emerge…

On social media, especially on Instagram, many singers have decided to do live shows right from their homes with the intention of entertaining their fans in a safe way. The idea has spread around the world and now it we have a long schedule of shows until the end of the month! Because of it, we decided to organize some of the events that will take place in April – so you won’t lose any of them! Check them out below:
