J2v VIRTUAL FESTIVAL EVENT ANNOUNCEMENT
We are pleased to announce the rescheduled date for J2v Virtual Festival as Saturday 11th July. The now extended broadcast is again gearing up to stream across the multiple stages of Junction 2’s new digital world.
The evolved J2v is a direct response to a process of reflection and education within our team over recent weeks. The addition of BLM as a beneficiary charity will sit alongside a review and update of our line-up. The diversity of the original line-up was not reflective of our passion to always welcome everyone onto our dance floors and into our DJ booths.
We begin this journey with Carl Craig, a long time LWE collaborator who will host and curate a new 4th stage for J2v which focuses on DJ talent from Detroit, the birthplace of our scene. This project will debut at J2v and will be a long-term commitment, as we strive to support increased diversity.
Alongside the mind-bending visuals of our virtual stages, expect Digital Art Exhibitions, The J2v Bar, a Speakers Corner and more in a digital world that brings our community together in blended reality.
Here’s to welcoming you all onto our virtual dance floor and we ask you to join us un in raising as much money as we can for some great charities.
