All gigs are cancelled. So how are you going to get your music fix and, more importantly, the artists we love going to make a living?

Musicians are finding more and more inventive ways of sharing their music and generating an income

Live streaming is becoming one way for musicians to play from home and still reach an audience. The Lockdown Music Festival last weekend showcased 16 of the hottest blues rock acts from all around the world – without anyone, bands or audience, having to leave the house. And all for free. 

In the words of organiser Jason Elliott: "No charge, but feel free to buy merch from the acts you like".

If you missed it, you can watch the videos below. An album is available from Bandcamp with the proceeds going to the relevant artists.
