Q. What is Electronic Music Live?

With tens of thousands of electronic music makers out there, and live streaming as easy as clicking a button, electronic music live is the obvious place to host live streaming electronic music, but why not just go to your local venue and watch a live performance there?

Well, from what we've learned from speaking to people involved in the electronic music scene, from the musicians and the promoters and the fans, there are lots of people making it but don't want to leave their studios, and lots of people who like it but don't want to go and watch it.

Sure there are massive audiences at EDM shows, and the electronic music bands with record deals, or the time to tour every time there's an album to promote, to visit local venues from time to time, but for artists who make music instead of loading all their gear into a truck well, electronic music live might just be the perfect place to perform.

As you may have noticed we're currently fairly early in development, the site is relatively static and hard wired together, so we can't automagically make you live after filling in an online form just yet, but there are a couple of ways we can think of in the meantime to at least get a link to your live event added to the calendar.

Q. What is UTC?

A. Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) is a time Standard as opposed to a Time Zone. UTC is the time standard commonly used across the world.

Q. How can I find out what time a live event starts in my Time Zone?

A. Clicking on the video thumbnail will show you what time the event starts in your Time Zone and how long until the events starts.

Q. Why use UTC?

A. UTC provides a time standard that can be used by our system to calculate the time in your part of the world. We are currently working on a system that uses UTC to display your local time. In the meantime imagines UTC is WED Dec 13 4:27 AM and your local time is TUE Dec 12 8:27 PM. YOU are eight hours behind which puts you in the PST zone (PST is 8 hours behind UTC in Winter and becomes PDT in Summer which is 7 hours behind). So if a show is scheduled to start SAT Dec 16 7:00 AM UTC the show will start in your time zone on FRI Dec 15 at 11:00 PM PST.
