This period has undoubtedly been tough for many; usually we could shake off our blues and stresses on the dance floor, but restrictions have forced us to adapt.
Although the reverting club sound systems and the dance floor euphoria could never be replaced, livestreams have certainly helped fill the void that live music has left. Promoters, artists, and music lovers have united, providing creative ways of bringing the club to you; some have streamed from their homes, and others have showcased amazing, unseen locations.
Here at Future Disco, we have been indulging in streams galore and have carefully compiled a list of our most loved disco-fuelled mixes.
Check out our top 5 favourite live streams which keep the club spirit alive.
