Even while staying in, the team at Four Four still manage to keep us up ‘till the early hours with their mammoth online festival featuring Charlie Four Four, Matt Guy, Luke Nukem, Ark-S, Colombian Frank and more...
For the ravers amongst us, the Easter weekend often means choosing from a plethora of festivals and day parties to dance at. Even when staying indoors there are still plenty of opportunities to party like you’re ‘out out’ while keeping safe thanks to live streaming technology.
Every Tom, Dick ‘n Harry with a phone and a pair of speakers (including us, with our Sofa Sessions) has been keeping each other entertained and morale high by sharing the music they love over the past few weeks. This weekend if you’re into feel-good electronic sounds, then Four Four DJ Academy’s 15 hour festival should do the trick.
If you don’t know, Four Four DJ Academy is based in Nottingham’s lace market, offering a community space for students to get to grips with DJing and production - we spoke to them in the early days last year. This isn’t their first live-streamed gig either, following a 48 hour fundraising event in November, and a series of online shows to celebrate its launch.
This bank holiday it’s clubbed together 16 friends and family from its musical circle, including Charlie Four Four, Bucko, Chubz, Luke Nukem, KT George, Movement’s Matt Guy LuvRythm’s Ark-S and Colombian Frank. Together they’re bringing a day-to-night schedule to soundtrack every garden party, kitchen rave and lairy living room session taking place in each household.
Starting at 2pm it’s live now, and not stopping until 5am so grab a party hat and stay tuned at a socially responsible volume for as long as you can handle - sounds like a usual bank holiday to us…
Four Four Virtual Festival streams from 2pm 11 April until 5am 12 April.
