Bandsintown LIVE This Week: The net.werk Festival Unites Diverse Electronic Music Producers and DJs

Bandsintown LIVE celebrates artists and showcases talents all over the world, with more than 725,000 unique viewers having tuned into the free, intimate music programming on Bandsintown LIVE's Twitch channel since its launch 3 weeks ago.

This Thursday, April 16, 14 boundary-pushing dance music producers and DJs celebrate the gender non-binary, queer, PoC, and female-identifying powerhouses of electronic music. net.werk, a play on the online-only but community-focused world artists are building for themselves amid the crisis, has been curated by DJ and producer Dani Deahl. Twitter is also streaming the event to expand its impact. All donations will go to MusiCares' COVID relief fund to support music professionals and artists.

"We believe that intimacy of music live streaming is a new form of entertainment, but this unprecedented moment of opportunity has not helped all artists equally," said Fabrice Sergent, Bandsintown's Managing Partner. "Even in the virtual world," net.werk artist UNiiQU3 tweeted recently, "y'all still book nothing but men." Bandsintown and net.werk teamed up out of a desire to change this radically and immediately.

"We are in an online space where there's the opportunity to make different choices, yet that hasn't been happening," Deahl explains. "So we decided to do something about it. Bandsintown was a natural choice for their ongoing effort to support artists. They immediately expressed support for our values and our vision. Having Twitter pledge support was unexpected and thrilling. It's amazing to join forces with companies who are as excited as we are about creating space for underrepresented artists."

Artists got on board, then worked together to make sure everyone had the gear and other tools they needed to participate. "The group effort is so indicative of how music folks have been coming together to help each other out in these times," notes Deahl. "The whole thing came together in a week. We wanted to show a bang-up collection of artists that just *happened* to include women, artists of color, non-binary artists, queer artists, in other words, the artists who always put in a huge amount of work and emotional labor to get noticed. This day is a platform for them."
