Last year proved how much we love and missed live events, but the dance music community stayed connected through livestreams. Venues may be closed, but dancing isn’t canceled. 

We’ve gathered our top picks from this week’s livestreams, so we can continue to groove together in the virtual space. Gene Farris, Mija and others are getting down, as is UK festival brand Junction. Some streams are for charity, some are just for keeping the funk alive.

Be sure to also check our list of recently streamed sets worth rewatching, so you never stop moving.

Sign up to join our network, and keep dancing.
