Life hasn’t been the same since the pandemic and people are still adjusting to it. One of the many things this pandemic has took away from us is the joy of being at a live concert. Concerts have been a place for people to release stress and get relaxed with the fun of meeting new people and enjoying the music. The situation is worse for the musicians who are left to wonder the chances of situation getting back to normal. Music artists have come up with a good alternative of live streaming and virtual concerts. Virtual concerts may not give you the feeling of being at the place and connecting with your audience but they still come with some benefits. We have shortlisted some of the important things to make you feel a little better about virtual concerts.
No Spatial Boundaries
The most important point of live streaming is to reach a greater audience. Live concerts always have a limit when it comes to the accommodation of people. The biggest indoor arena in the world can only accommodate 55,000 people which looks like a large sum but when it comes to musical concerts, audiences can be as large as of millions. With millions of fans yearning to get tickets for your concert, not being able to secure one, because of the accommodation, can be disappointing. But with live streaming that’s not the issue anymore. Musicians can hold events of as many people as they want without having to worry about their accommodation. On the other side, audiences don’t have to worry about missing on their favorite artist’s performances just because they couldn’t find tickets to their concert.
Ever had this experience when your favorite band is performing and you can’t go because it’s at a place far from yours. Well with online concerts people can join from anywhere in the world and have the privilege of watching the exclusive content of their favorite artists from their home. People who can’t afford to travel abroad can buy tickets for virtual concert of their favorite independent artist or band and watch them perform live on their screen comfortably from anywhere. Livestreaming gives musicians the privilege to connect with their fans all around the world without having to travel to different countries.
Economical Way Of Gaining Audience
Whether you are aspiring to become a musician or making your debut in the music industry, it’s always hard to cover the long sheet of expenses that comes with it. People suffer with lack of audiences and slow starts. Bands making their way into the music industry have to put large amounts of investment for travelling. Moreover, musicians who have their daily jobs have to take weeks or months off to compensate for the concert which results in a financial blow. Live streaming is a great option for small bands like these to build a greater audience. A little investment is still needed for equipment but it will surely be worth it in the longer run. You can start with daily live streams which will help you in building a fan base and then you can aim higher with virtual concerts. The biggest advantage that comes with live streaming is the freedom of performing from home and the flexibility of schedule. Perform whenever you want though consistency is required when it comes to gaining audience.
Less Work And More Income
Live streaming has made it very easy to organize a concert. From booking a place to the event management, concerts have been a hectic job. Livestreaming allows you to stream from any location, be it either your room or your backyard, you can always share your musical journey with your fans from anywhere. Booking a place can cost you a fortune if you are aiming for a bigger audience. With livestreaming you can be free of the worry of arrangements and save yourself time, hard work and money that come with concerts.
The world is adapting to new trends and life after pandemic has mostly gone virtual. People have started to learn the feasibility that comes with virtuality and everything is getting affected by it. Live streaming and virtual concerts are the future of music industry and more and more artists are joining the trend.
