Helivation says it will take live stream festivals to new heights
Helivation is set to elevate South African streaming events on 6 and 7 June 2020.
This lofty claim made by their press folk will be interesting to see.
“In partnership with SkyRoomLive, Joburg Life, 947 and Times Live, Helivation will, for the first time, stream live from a spectacular Sandton helipad with 360-degree panoramic skyline views, epic DJs and world-class production.
“Helivation, live from the SkyRoomLive helipad at The Block, will be a first-of-its-kind live music event, in a time when live events as we know them are restricted.”
What makes Helivation unique?
Their sales blurb…
For the first time since lockdown, DJs and artists will actually travel to and perform at a music venue, not from their homes.
“With strict health and safety measures in place, the DJs will play their live sets to audiences at home across the country and the world atop a helipad.
“Already confirmed to perform are DJ Fresh, Euphonik, Chrizz Beatz, Ayanda MVP, DJ Dimples, Shimza and Kyle Watson, with more to be announced as more tickets are sold.
Not only will the production quality and view from the SkyRoomLive helipad at The Block set it apart from all other live-streamed events, but the artists and crews are being booked and paid, for the first time in months.
“This set-up will provide a much-needed lifeline to many artists and crew who have in the last few months seen themselves without any income due Covid-19 lockdown restrictions.
“Your ticket unlocks more DJs, innovation and support for the industry!
Helivation is a festival fuelled by you!
“With every ticket sold at only R50 each, the party is elevated to a new level.
“Each level unlocks new artists, floors, tech, drones and innovation, building an even more phenomenal live-streamed experience.
“With each new artist and element that gets added to the festival, the industry is being supported, from riggers, camera operators, lighting and AV technicians to social media managers, editors and promoters.
“In addition to the launch line-up, as more tickets are sold Helivation will unlock names like PH, Milkshake, Speedsta, Cinnamon and Capital.
“What’s more, a percentage of the money raised through ticket sales will be used to help ailing entertainment crews who’ve been hardest hit during the pandemic.
“These shows will support tech companies by providing much needed work for the backend crew in the events industry.”
The existing ‘live stream’ format was in desperate need of an overhaul. DJs all playing from one amazing location
