#SocialDistancing & Live Music: Live Concerts via Videochat


Covid-19 and Social Distancing has been hard on everyone. The good news is that thanks to digital video conferencing, we can still meet with our friends and families virtually -- and this also applies to live music. Experience a live concert via video chat with friends and family.

Whether as a cheer-me-up for a family that's physically separated, as a thank you for all of the home office heroes, or as a surprise for a friend's birthday: Our artists have you covered and look forward to bringing you a virtual concert over video chat. We hope that this concert will bring a little live music back into your life, which makes for a fun and social event! Not only will you have a good time, but you'll also support independent musicians and SofaConcerts who have both been particularly affected by the COVID pandemic.

Audio output: Use headphones for an ideal sound experience and to avoid echo when your microphone is on.
