POOF DOOF DIRECT – FROM MELBOURNE TO THE WORLD LIVE STREAM.

Following the closure of nightclubs across the world, business owners have turned to live streaming. Business Insider Australia spoke to One Six One and Poof Doof about their new live-streaming initiatives.

“Jane Slingo, executive producer of Australia’s Electronic Music Conference, and a board member of Music NSW, told Business Insider Australia via email it was “fantastic” to see the community so motivated and quick to keep their creativity alive online.”

“By nature, those in the electronic music community are digital natives,” she said. “In this part of the music sector there’s already a history of live streamed events well before COVID-19 – global streamed events from the likes of Boiler Room, Cercle, Worldwide FM events. So it’s not surprising how quickly DJs and club nights have made a significant imprint on our feeds as life moves more permanently to online.”
