Inclusive, ground-breaking performances. Exciting and inspiring conversations. Fresh and fun live music. Seriously sweaty dance parties. You can see it all at VCR Fest, and everyone is welcome!
Browse through our Virtual Common Rooms mixtape of events, carefully considered and home delivered. You’ll find 13 top-notch shows and workshops, all ready to be enjoyed from the comfort of the couch… though we reckon you’ll be up an boogieing at a few of them, so be sure to put some pants on. Choose your favourites (why stop at one when you don’t even have to get up?!) and be sure to register your interest in events so we can remind you when to tune in.
Part of the fun of seeing something live is chatting to your mates about it after. Stay online after the show to check out the digital foyer, where you can pay for your ticket (for Choose Your Price events), chat to your fellow audience members and get other show recommendations. Need help navigating digital events? Here’s a quick guide.
Looking for other ways to support artists? Up is a digital bank designed to help you organise your money and simplify your life. For every new Up account opened during VCR Fest, the kind folks at Up will sling us $10 to help support this year’s artists and creators. And, as a bonus, you’ll get $10 too. Find out more here.
