After two multi-room events using Twitch’s ‘Squad Stream’ technology, the Defected WWWorldwide series will come to a close tomorrow, reflecting the house music label’s summer of club events in Ibiza that have been postponed due to the global pandemic.
Partnering with Twitch to stream music events on the platform for the first time, Defected WWWorldwide events feature three virtual rooms with DJs playing concurrently in each between 6-10pm BST, as they would in a nightclub. Meanwhile, select sets will be streamed to Defected’s YouTube between 4:30-11pm BST.
The final event tomorrow will take the audience back to Ibiza, with Sam Divine, David Penn and Ferreck Dawn in Eden’s Room 1, Mambo Brothers, Manu Gonzalez and Melon Bomb in Café Mambo’s Room 2, and Mike Dunn, Terry Farley B2B Stuart Patterson and Seamus Haji in 4 To The Floor’s Room 3.
Adapting Twitch’s gaming functionality for the purpose of bringing people together through music, the brand aims to get even closer to a real clubbing experience, allowing viewers to dip in and out of different rooms at leisure, like choosing a stage at a festival. As with previous Defected Virtual Festivals all sets will be uploaded to watch back on YouTube in full HD directly after.
