New Year’s Eve livestream guide: David Guetta, Martin Garrix, Major Lazer, and more
Even though in-person events largely remain at a standstill, would-be New Year’s Eve festival-goers can still ring in the new year the way they would any other year: with live music. This December 31, artists from across the globe are taking their sets to what has become known to the musical masses as the savior of 2020: the livestream.
New Year’s Eve virtual shows are nearly limitless this year, promising performances from main stage favorites such as Steve Aoki and David Guetta to more niche artists such as SunSquabi and Beats Antique. All can be enjoyed from the comfort of viewers’ own homes, and to simplify the process of identifying which streams best suit your 2020 New Year’s Eve tastes, Dancing Astronaut has rounded up the most rousing and innovative NYE livestreams to leave 2020 in the past (where it belongs).
