How does a DSTNCE livestream work?
You prepare a 45-minute set as you normally would for an in-person venue, and we film,mix and broadcast your set online in real-time from our studio. Up to 500 ticket holders watch the broadcast via Zoom, and have the opportunity to react to each and every song.Throughout the show, you will be able to view a chatroom and have the opportunity to interact with your audience via Polls, Q&A and more. The whole event lasts about an hour and typically costs your fans $5-10 per ticket.
Is the venue open to the public?
No. The artist is joined only by our DSTNCE team members to help facilitate your livestream. You will be able to see and hear your online audience’s reaction in real time.
Where is your venue located?
Our venue is located in New Westminster, British Columbia at 12TH ST Sound, a commercial recording studio.
