From Tomorrowland to Sunburn, Firstpost explores the Best Virtual Global Music Festivals on World Music Day
Singing at the top of the lungs along with maskless crowds, dancing for hours, clicking zillions of pictures with friends, long lines to buy burgers and beers, while wearing the concert merch! Unfortunately, for now, at least for people in India, that is still a mental picture one can only paint, there is no saying for sure, when we will be attending a real music concert again. Many music artists had to push back their tours, cancel music festivals (remember Coachella and Sunburn?!) due to the current situation. Meanwhile performers like Alan Walker and Travis Scott hosted 2020's biggest concerts... in the Fortnite game.

Virtual concerts are keeping music lovers stay afloat - With the Fortnite concert last year, a new trend of in-game concerts saw a rise, with artists like Alan Walker, Travis Scott and The Weeknd performing live within games like World of Tanks, Adventure Quest 3D, The Sims, and Minecraft.A few organisations like Anupam Kher Foundation and Sunburn, also hosted virtual music concerts to raise money for the COVID-19 Relief fund. During the lockdown, we also saw several budding musicians, independent artist and bands hosting live jamming sessions on app like Clubhouse, TikTok, Instagram, Facebook and YouTube.

In 2021 too, a bunch of virtual music festivals have already taken place, and few more are lined up in the coming weeks. Here is a list of a few virtual concerts that you can still sign up for:

Sunburn Rewind
While the Sunburn Festival stands cancelled even this year, you can still join Sunburn Rewind virtually and enjoy the best of Sunburn Festival 2018 highlights. This will include Trans music artist Armin van Buuren, DJ Snake, Nucleya, Clean Bandit, Above and Beyond and more. Although, this might not sound as exciting without your friends around, it can somewhat quench your thirst for EDM loaded evening. You can get access to the exclusive video of the Best of Sunburn by visiting this link and donating for COVID-19 relief. Sunburn Festival in collaboration with Give India is raising this money to help people in need. Do note that this exclusive festival video will be available from 4 July till 4 August 2021 only. Sunburn Festival has also teased a "Solaris Sunburn" sundowner for 26 June at 6.45 pm IST which will be livestreamed on its social media handles.
