Amid the lockdowns surrounding COVID-19, artists are scrambling to stay in touch with their audiences. Given the circumstances, virtual festivals and live stream sets are skyrocketing.
The STMPD RCRDS Festival will mark a particularly ambitious endeavor as the stream is set to go for 24 consecutive hours. No lineup has been set as of yet, but the label has worked with a number of artists including Syn Cole and Matisse & Sadko.
Of course, fans are hoping Martin Garrix (real name Martijn Garritsen) himself will make an appearance. A dedicated group of superfans running the Martin Garrix Hub recently shared a slew of high-profile collaborations the producer is potentially sitting on. Assuming he does play, Garritsen potentially has a lot of new music in the works waiting to be previewed.
