We’re nearing the end of June, which means the summer concert schedule is heating up, even if it doesn’t look quite like we planned.
Most live events and large gatherings remain in hold throughout the country due to the coronavirus crisis, leading artists to continue the trend of livestreaming shows to connect with fans.
With music venues still shut down from coast to coast, here’s your guide to the best live-streamed music content right now, for the week of June 22. As additional events are announced for the week, we’ll add them to this list.
