Hear65 Gig Guide: November 2021

The gig industry may be slowly recovering but livestream and digital concerts are not going anywhere just yet.

The transition from watching live shows in packed-out stadiums to catching them from the comfort of our homes was odd — to say the least — but it did prove that online concerts are not a bad alternative if we are too busy (or lazy) to leave our homes. 

In 2021, a number of homegrown artists who recognise the potential of online concerts have wasted no time in securing their slots on the livestream and digital concerts calendar. This is exciting news for those who have been waiting to see their favourite local acts perform again as well as those who are itching to discover new music. 

To help you keep track of everything that is happening, here's a list of livestream and digital shows that are scheduled to take place this year.
