This example has been followed by a lot of industries especially the entertainment ones like the music industry. Countless bands and artists decided to use their social media platforms and different outlets in order to host live shows for their loyal fans. For example, rock bands like The Pretty Reckless and DIRTY HONEY are some of the few who are planning on participating in an upcoming festivals and concerts which will be, of course, held online.
