On Saturday we join forces with the mighty Junction 2 to share streams from the J2v Virtual Festival. The broadcasts are created with multiple festival stages, where J2v will exist, creating an online festival site that will capture the imagination and deliver on Junction 2’s fundamental principles: The finest underground music, unique stage structures, mind-bending visuals and an inclusive atmosphere. With some of the founders of J2 residing in Brighton, it made absolute sense to link up for a great cause for our city and showcase a stellar lineup of some of the world’s biggest names. Watch sets with ANNA, Adam Beyer, Carl Craig, Maya Jane Coles, Nina Kraviz and many more! More info here: www.junction2.london
On Sunday, Brighton Music Conference, the UK’s foremost electronic music conference & networking event presents Stanton Warriors playing in the i360 Pod.

A movement that started in Berlin during lockdown that has spread to over 66 cities around the world, United We Stream Brighton continues to showcase the music, culture and free-thinking rainbow infused spirit to viewers at home, whilst raising money for the city’s night-time economy, cultural organisations and charities.
The idea is for locals as well as people around the world to enjoy and experience Brighton’s music, art and culture through the website and social platforms. United We Stream Brighton is free, but with donations welcome, and all proceeds will go to support night-time economy businesses and cultural organisations across Brighton & Hove as well as contributing to the fight against homelessness and the vital work undertaken by the Grassroots charity and Audio Active.
Please donate what you can to raise money for Brighton’s nightlife, cultural organisations, charities and the fight against homelessness. https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/brightonunitedwestream

United We Stream Brighton will feature some of Brighton’s most-loved venues, streaming music and performances every weekend uniting the city during the coronavirus pandemic. Initiated by Berlin-Brighton, The Brighton Music Conference, and Global Publicity, United we Stream Brighton joins Manchester to fly the flag for the UK music industry showcasing our talent to the world and reminding us of all the venues that are closed and we are missing during this time.
A report published last month by Oxford Economics and commissioned by the Creative Industries Federation, which was supported by UK Music, has suggested that without help, the music industry ‘is projected to lose at least £3 billion in GVA (50 per cent) and 60 per cent of jobs (114,000)’. Therefore donating and joining the movement to support our music and culture in Brighton is essential.
