Brighton joins the global streaming community with ‘United We Stream’ launching in the city this week. A movement that started in Berlin during lockdown that has spread to over 65 cities around the world, United We Stream Brighton will showcase the music, culture and free-thinking rainbow infused spirit to viewers at home, whilst raising money for the city’s night-time economy, cultural organisations and charities.
The idea is for locals as well as people around the world to enjoy and experience Brighton’s music, art and culture through the website and social platforms. United We Stream Brighton is free, but with donations welcome, and all proceeds will go to support bars, clubs, pubs, venues, restaurants, performers, freelancers and cultural organisations across Brighton & Hove as well as contributing to the fight against homelessness and the vital work undertaken by the Grassroots charity.
United We Stream Brighton will feature some of Brighton’s most-loved venues including; British Airways i360, The Tempest, Big Beach Cafe, Enter Art Gallery (formerly Art Republic), The Brighton Centre and many more, streaming live music and performances every weekend uniting the city during the coronavirus pandemic.
Initiated by Berlin-Brighton, The Brighton Music Conference, and Global Publicity, United we Stream Brighton joins Manchester to fly the flag for the UK music industry showcasing our talent to the world and reminding us of all the venues that are closed and we are missing during this time. A recent article by the UK Theatre and Society of London Theatre, estimated that half of all music venues and 70% of theatres across the UK face permanent closure. Therefore donating and joining the movement to support our music, art and culture in Brighton is essential.
We continue on Friday Evening with the incredible local Brighton based talent that is the lovely and amazing Just Her. From deep house to techno, but always with feeling. Just Her’s trademark melodies and vocals have secured her releases with world class labels such as Get Physical, Anjunadeep & Global Underground, achieving a wealth of Beatport chart positions, an Essential New Tune on Radio 1 and gigs all over the world. With sell out shows from South Africa to Lebanon to the Ukraine, it's clear why Just Her continues to develop a loyal base of fans from around the globe.
