United We Stream
Parklife’s Co-Founder, Sacha Lord, has co-ordinated the launch of United We Stream here in Manchester. After many live music events and festivals have been cancelled or postponed, this gives Manchester based artists the chance to perform via the live streaming service.
First aired on Monday night, the service is set to stream from 7pm each evening and will contain a selection of live DJ sets, poetry and comedy acts. Whilst the service is free, there is the option for donations which will enter a relief fund. This will be donated to help tackle homelessness within Greater Manchester; to Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy Charity, who provide therapy to people with disabilities and life limiting illnesses; and to support the night time economy within Greater Manchester such as bars, restaurants and music venues who are unable to continue business as usual.
