Orphic Virtual Festival

Description

An online festival community and platform that better represents the social interaction in the virtual space and allows for creativity to be expressed with others.

Combining live video feeds with DJ feeds and other APIs it allows for a more fluid and interactive experience of virtual music performance online.

Problem

The events industry and music scene has taken a crazy hit in the past week and everyone is struggling. We are going to launch virtual festivals for help everyone in this community through a crazy time that we have no idea when will end. This will help people get through this pandemic by offering positivity, and it will also keep the creative/events community afloat.

MISSION

In this time of chaos and many cancelled gigs, we (at Orphic) are working to get all the DJs/Artists we know in one virtual place, to throw a digital festival every week.

More than ever before we, as a creative community, need to band together and support each other. Too many people are out of work for the next 2-3 months and there needs to be a positive solution we can offer to this.

There are an insane amount of livestreams for lockdown, but streaming alone is not sustainable for the events industry. We'll all benefit from a central space, that will direct audiences to where they can create together and experience a more social x

Our team is planning to develop our virtual platform and host 24/h events every week to become a fully monetised event system for DJs/Artists. For now, we will set up a donation system so we can start generating any income to survive, traffic to promote what we all do and testing the potential of "virtual" festivals. If someone performs during a timeslot, they will receive the donations submitted during that time.

We will book a variety of artists with small and massive followings. Everyone will be encouraged to cross-promote the platform and the people involved, so we can all grow our followings during this time as well as instigate more income.

This Saturday and Sunday we will test the concept with 15+ DJs/Artists. Each week we'll improve the platform to help performers further. Collaborators will be able to provide feedback and requests for development.

We are looking for DJs to fill our Saturday night spots for the California timezone (PST). We are also able to provide late night slots for Europe, after midnight (GMT).

DJ events

  • How could you have an dj music event? Not a zoom call but somewhere where people can influence it here and there in some way but without constant streaming towards one place.
