See original article here

Stefflon Don is among the major names who will take part in Wireless Festival‘s virtual ‘Wireless Connect’ festival this weekend.

‘Wireless Connect’ will be hosted online from this Friday to Sunday (July 3-5) as part of Wireless’ new partnership with MelodyVR, and is being held in place of this year’s cancelled festival.

Stefflon Don is among a number of acts — which also includes Mist, Steel Banglez and JAY1 — whose pre-recorded performances will be broadcast for free this weekend. Fans will be able to access ‘Wireless Connect’ either in 360° virtual reality on the MelodyVR app, or on the Wireless Facebook and YouTube pages.

Fans who tune in to ‘Wireless Connect’ this weekend will be encouraged to make a donation to Black Lives Matter via a new Crowdfunder page, which is now live.

It’s great to see the industry innovating and adapting to quickly to the challenges of Covid-19, and for a great cause! We’ll be tuning in and supporting Wireless as it goes virtual for the very first time.
