Events can be virtually attended from anywhere via smart TV, tablet, computer or smartphone. Differing from other live-streaming experiences, every event is a truly live and exclusive experience. Each show is streamed live from the event location, with no pre-recording or editing like other platforms. Replays, skipping or rewinding is not possible, further establishing the exclusive nature of the show. Ticketholders also gain access to exciting add-ons such as virtual meet & greets, artist green room hangouts and one-off merchandise as part of the service.
GLOBAL LIVE is opening strong with a line-up of top-tier artists to begin their run of live shows. Timmy Trumpet’s FREAKSHOW will be the first live concert hosted by the exclusive streaming service on October 31. A world renown Australian DJ and instrumentalist, Timmy Trumpet is one of the most prolific electronic artists on the planet. His first ever livestream earlier this year clocked over 7 Million views worldwide, becoming one of the most watched EDM performances in 2020. This event is a show not to be missed.
