HOW IT WORKS
We understand it is a tough time for musos right now, and we want help live streaming artists to reach a broader online audience. We are musos ourselves! The more artists who come on board with us, the bigger and better our 'Live Streaming Community' will become and the better our 'Event Calendar' will be.
The concept is to provide one platform where Artists can promote services they can provide online, this could include live online entertainment (exlcusive paid live shows), tutoring, workshops etc services are only limited by the Artists skills and imagination!
We are trying to keep the costs affordable, so at this stage we are asking for a voluntary small monthly fee to subscribe to a basic package, but if you can't afford than there is a free option too! Please note, paid subscribers will receive additional benefits - we are working on this. We are evolving on the run and will expand services to suit the changing needs of Artists! Support us so we can support you!

What you’ll need to start live streaming:
Video and audio source(s) – these are cameras, computer screens, and other image sources to be shown, as well as microphones, mixer feeds, and other sounds to be played in the stream.
A video encoder – this is the computer software or standalone hardware device that packages real-time video and sends it to the Internet.
A streaming destination – the place your live video will become available online. Popular ones include YouTube, Vimeo, and Facebook Live.
A stable Internet connection – so your stream doesn’t freeze, buffer, or drop off entirely.
