For the past five years, Kuala Lumpur based live venue "LIVE FACT" has played a part in helping to nurture the local independent music scene. We have created a platform for established and upcoming local acts as well as a touring destination for international artists. We are proud to grow alongside them and be a part of their musical journey. Likewise, we are also a meeting point and hangout spot for the like-minded and gig-goers.
However, in the face of the ongoing pandemic, live performances are in peril, as social distancing make performing live music and attending live shows all but impossible. Despite the gradual re-opening of local businesses, live events and large public gatherings are still prohibited.
Like lots of businesses, we have gone three months without any income. As a live music venue, our revenues based largely on door takings and beverage sales, without any shows, it is indeed a challenging task to keep things going. To stay afloat, we tried to shift our business by offering packages for recording, rehearsal and production but still yet to produce any results.
The economic impact we're experiencing is unprecedented but still we remain optimisitc, we believe that even during this trying time music is still an important part of our lives and we want to stay connected with the artists and their fans.
Hence, we figure out the best way to bring everyone together is to go VIRTUAL!
WHY VIRTUAL GIGS?
1. To sustain our space. We want to be brutally honest with you, we need to pay our monthly rental, utility bills and maintenance fees.
2. To keep the music alive, three months without any gigs, life sucks!
3. To reconnect with musicians and fans. Yes, we missed the sing along, body surfing, mosh pit and flying guitar, someone needs to break that partition wall again!
