Gig Buddies - Coronafest
Keep fighting for your right to party & join the @gigbuddiesuk community - this virtual festival is for everyone!
This week, like everyone, we've been trying to work our what then implications of the Coronavirus Pandemic are for all the people we work with.
Gig Buddies is after all a project that's all about supporting humans to have contact with other humans in busty places. So obviously it presents a challenge.
This means as it stands there are no socials and there should be no one to one activity.
But we've been thinking hard as a team what we can do. Now we're all experiencing social isolation we have to find other ways to prevent people feeling lonely and worried.
The response has been incredible and within minutes of us announcing the plan Lauren Laverne gave us a mention on BBC 6 Music! Already the acts are signing up too.
One thing we've done is launch an online music festival for everyone so we can keep the live music going.
How it works
It will all take place on our Facebook Page 'Coronavirus Fest'
Every evening there will be two slots - and anyone can turn up and perform. They just need to book their slot.
