The world around us is becoming more connected every day, making things we didn’t think were possible just a few years ago our new reality. Today, instead of going to the movies, you can simply stream them online. Instead of buying a newspaper, you can simply read the latest news on your phone. Instead of heading to the Caesars in Accra, you can simply play the same games at the Betway Ghana casino online. And, instead of traveling across half the world, you can join popular events, from trade shows to concerts and festivals, from your home. Here are some that you may want to check out this year.
Altísimo Live Festival (May 5th)
If you have a weakness for Latino culture – and especially music – you shouldn’t miss the Altísimo Live Festival supported by actress Eva Longoria. The “Latin music and pop culture” festival will be held on May 5th to celebrate “Cinco de Mayo”, the commemoration of the Mexican army’s victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla in 1862.
The event will be hosted by Longoria herself, J Balvin, Rosario Dawson, and Alejandro Sanz, and will feature talents like Luis Fonsi, Frankie Negron, Steve Aoki, Juanes, and Gloria Estefan.
The event will be streamed live on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Twitch, and many other channels.
PlayOnFest (April 24-27)
If you hoped to visit a music festival this year but you can’t for any reason, here’s one that will fill the gap: Warner’s PlayOnFest held this very weekend. The four-day charity event will consist of recorded performances by some of the most beloved artists of our times, ranging from Ed Sheeran and Coldplay to Disturbed and Korn, covering every genre, every taste of music.
Make no mistake, the performances will not be live – they will be recordings of the artists’ performances that have never been broadcast before.
Gamescom 2020 (August 25-29)
Finally, here’s one for those with a taste for video games and gaming hardware, the biggest gaming event in Europe: Gamescom 2020.
The ‘live’ part of the event was canceled this year but the presentations and product reveals will still take place, only with no live audience. Game developers and hardware manufacturers from around the world will time their keynotes and releases to be held during the event, and all of them will be streamed online through the usual channels – YouTube, Twitch, and their likes – and the event’s website.
