The world is in a uniquely strange and challenging place right now and the electronic music community, like so many others, has been deeply impacted by the current Coronavirus crisis. Our hearts go out to all those who have been affected physically and economically by the virus and the difficulties it has brought. We truly believe there will be brighter days ahead and for now, dance music’s spirit of love and compassion is much needed to heal the souls of the world’s isolated music lovers. Listening to music is one thing we can all do during these long days and here is a roundup of what we have coming.
Music: Bruce Loko feat. Biishop – After Hours
This year sees Get Physical mark its 18th year, a milestone we share with one of our favourite clubs in the world, Watergate. Like all music venues they are suffering a particularly difficult time and we would like to do what we can to try and make sure they make it through 2020 with us. As such, we are launching the pre-sale for our 18th birthday party, to be held at Watergate at an as yet undecided date. This is part of the ‘Save Watergate‘ campaign and by going to the following link you can sign up to donate and get a ‘supporters ticket’. We look forward to seeing you on that dancefloor in the not too distant future – https://www.startnext.com/en/save-the-watergate
