How Concert Videos Are Keeping Us Sane in Quarantine

So here we are, in the month of May. No matter how the last two months have gone for you, we know that May is usually the start of your favorite time of the year – festival season. But here we are, still at home, yearning for even one definite date that we could count on to get back to our happy places.

We get it, it’s a sad, tough as hell time and the state of the country and our world today is not helping the fact there is no live music… in-person.

Being that you are an avid fest and music lover (correct me if I’m wrong but I’m assuming that’s why you’re on our page, right?) I’m sure you have joined the virtual festival and show trend that has picked up. Festivals like Play On, Human to Human, and EDC’s virtual Rave-a-thon have been giving us something to hold on to, smile about, and look forward to.

At Living The Fest Life we have taken this idea and RAN with it. We present to you – our staff’s at home shows. We’ve put together lineups of our own using videos we have taken at past shows, fests, and just about anywhere music lives and brought our family and pets back to some of our happiest times via homescreen. Your headliners become who you have the most footage of (longer sets) with some special appearances and shorter set times via snapchat memories and short clips. You have more than 2 minutes of videos of an artist? Great! Add ‘em in.
