Calvin Harris To Headline Defected Records Live Stream

With the world forced to remain at home, live streaming has exploded and Calvin Harris has come to fore by bringing a host of artists together for an online festival.

Supported by a lineup that features Claptone, Roger Sanchez, Sam Divine and more, the Defected Records broadcast is set to begin at 9AM ET on Friday (4.10) and goes straight through the end of the day, ending at 5:15PM ET. And the Scottish production maestro will close out the event as his techno alter-ego Love Regenerator.

“Defected helped define the sound of house music I was listening to as a teenager; I associate the old grey and blue 12” covers with so much happiness and inspiration,” Harris said in a statement. “Since day one every release has been of quality, and when you think about it – with the amount the industry has changed since 1999 – to be smashing it out the park more than ever is a beyond incredible feat!”

The Defected Virtual Festival will stream via Facebook, Twitch, YouTube and Twitter. All proceeds will benefit the World Health Organization’s COVID-19 Response Fund.
