How Can You Access Live Music During Quarantine
Updated: May 5, 2020
During this period where we are all confined in our homes, it's difficult for us to access live music since all live performances are canceled until 2020 autumn. It's surely difficult not being able to have a face-to-face concrete connection with music but in Italy, -the coronavirus outbreak center in Europe- people found an unusual way to sing in their balconies and show they were united with one another via music! This was very inspiring for everyone and it ignited everyone's passion to sing and play. When it came to artists who had their shows canceled, they broadcasted their concerts.
We have been confined in our homes for 2 months and all of our habits have changed. In my previous article, I mentioned how confinement affected our habits concerning music. We would usually listen to music while we're going to work but after the coronavirus outbreak, our "route songs" turned into our cooking songs. Podcasts and listening rates have reached an all-time high!

We must accept that our new habits are going to stay the same for a little while and unfortunately we'll continue to "fulfill" our concert needs with IG-lives or on other social platforms. I will share live concerts with you in this article. Let's endure these times together. Stay home, Stay together, Stay with music!
