Our Favorite Livestreams of 2020

December 22, 2020 - By Dana Slattery

2020 brought about many changes for live music fans. A year without any concerts would have been hard to imagine if we hadn't just lived it. CashorTrade and so many others in the live music industry made a fast pivot from making plans for Summer tours, to making plans to make things work. Thanks to resilliance, a desperate need to connect & more free time than we ever had before- 2020 became the year of the livestream. We raged harder in our living rooms than we even knew we could. If you had told last year we'd be spending most of 2020 watching live music on a screen from home, we never would've believed it. But every cloud has a silver lining, and although livestreaming our favorite acts wasn't our first choice- it was an incredible reprise from our new reality that brought us hours of joy over the course of the year we'll never forget.

Since the launch of CashorTrade Streams in July, we have hosted almost 3,000 livestreams and have created channels & helped raise money to support over 250 festivals, venues, and artists. We wanted to take a moment to look back and reflect on some of our favorite livestreams on CashorTrade over the past year. Livestreams & archival streams stay available on a user's CashorTrade Streams channel forever, with the ability to collect donations. So get cozy and get down to our Best of 2020 Livestream List & toss a donation to the artist if you can!
