Defected Records Virtual Music Festival Residency Continues


Following the immense global success of Defected’s first-ever Virtual Festival, which was live-streamed across Twitter, YouTube and Facebook reaching over 10m people.

The house music behemoth is continuing the series with a 6-hour stream this Friday, 27th March. Complying with the UK government’s lockdown restrictions, Defected are encouraging music fans to stay home to enjoy six world-class DJ’s streaming directly from their own homes and studios.

DJ sets will come from Folamour, Karizma, Melé, Riva Starr and more to be announced later this week.

Simon Dunmore said: “In normal times we connect people physically and online via social media. Last Friday we proved that there really is a global House Nation as people from all over the world met and partied together via apps and the Internet. There was nothing but positivity for 12 hours because, as the saying goes, people were “lost in music”.

The event reunited people, they realised they were not alone in isolation. Communities and friends met up via their screens, and they partied like it was 1999! We hope to continue for as long as we are needed. We need people indoors, safe. We’ll provide the music and good times, they just need to stay in and be a part of this huge global House Party. We also want to extend the concept by fundraising for the global COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.”

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
