Over the course of the past weeks, the dance music industry has been announcing a diverse mix of livestream performances to celebrate New Year’s 2021. 

With much of in-person entertainment put on hold in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, livestreams have become the primary way for music acts to interact with fans over the course of the past year.   Therefore, it only seems fitting to close out the year with some of the most lauded artists to provide some much needed uplifting entertainment to ring in 2021.

From charity-based fundraisers like David Guetta’s United At Home to full-blown immersive festival experiences like Tomorrowland 31.12.20, New Year’s 2021 offers a slew of safe entertainment options no matter what your taste in music.
