Tobacco Dock Virtual announce opening weekend line-up

A colossal lineup has been announced for the Tobacco Dock Virtual Opening Weekend, which is completely free-to-attend across all platforms and devices. Taking place on Friday 2nd and Saturday 3rd April 2021, the two-day Easter Weekend partython features 50 artists playing across four arenas at the immersive, virtual venue, including Chase & Status, Adam Beyer, Wilkinson, Hot Since 82, Patrick Topping, Eats Everything, Skream, Nastia, Camo & Krooked, Flava D, Sherelle, Imogen, Emerald, Mollie Collins and many more. 

Tobacco Dock Virtual is a pioneering project from electronic music promoters, LWE and leading virtual live events platform, Sansar, that sees the iconic London venue recreated in stunning detail. Available on mobile, MAC, tablet, PC, or VR through the Sansar app or any browser – without need for specialist equipment. Live-stream and media partner, Beatport, will also broadcast sets across Facebook, Youtube, Twitch and Beatport.com. Replicating the social experience as closely as possible, partygoers can meet and catch up with friends, throw shapes on the dancefloor and explore the cavernous venue together. Adding to the shared experience, a range of games can also be enjoyed, including the customisation of avatars, quests and challenges. All from the comfort of your home without a queue in sight.

Good Friday’s opening show celebrates house and techno with some of the biggest names in clubland, alongside exciting rising talent. The Great Gallery plays host to Enzo Siragusa, Hot Since 82, Skream, Rinse FM’s Emerald and the hotly-tipped stylings of SYREETA. Techno seekers can head to the Car Park where Adam Beyer, Sasha, Nastia, Helena Star and Imogen will be happy to oblige. Eats Everything and Patrick Topping take headline slots in The Terrace in association with Relentless Energy Drink, with Alisha, Eliza Rose and Jaden Thompson also performing. Mr. Afterparty host the Little Gallery with Riva Starr, East End Dubs, Siggy Smalls, Miky J b2b Knowwhat and Lily Rivers
