Virtual parties to be brought into people's homes as four Portsmouth DJs set to stream live
WITH many partygoers missing the chance to let their hair down, a new platform is set to bring the party into people’s homes.
Aiming to connect the people of Portsmouth through virtual DJ sets streaming live into your living room, Remote Party UK has been set up by city artist Dolly Scibberas.
Four DJs from around the area are set to live stream through Remote Party’s Facebook page tomorrow night from 6pm to 11.30pm to make people feel like they’re going out, even though they can’t.
‘We want to keep people connected as much as possible,’ Dolly told The News.
‘The other day we did a test run and we had more than 500 views
‘This weekend we’re hoping for a bigger boost to keep people connected and make the most of a bad situation.’
Professional DJs Groover Washington and Fareham’s Andy Mason will be appearing on the set list along with The Frog and aspiring 16-year-old Ed Parker, who will all be sharing tracks to get people in the party mood.
Dolly is encouraging people to like the Facebook page so they will be notified when the event goes live, and partygoers can send in pictures and videos of themselves joining in at home - with getting dressed up for the occasion being strongly encouraged.
Dolly, who also created Contemporary Art Pop-Up Gallery, said: ‘We have got to try to adapt to something we can’t even fathom. We want to help free the mind a bit.
‘We’re going to get dressed up and pretend to go out, it’s a psychological thing and we want to make the viewer feel better.’
All the entertainers are giving their time up for free to share some music and fun to the community, and the live stream party will be free to watch and join in with.
Dolly is keen to get all kinds of entertainment to be shown through Remote Party, to keep everyone’s spirits up through these strange times.
