A 24-hour takeover of the radio waves, headlined by the one and only Tame Impala

If you, like us, are experiencing a little livestream concert fatigue, we wouldn't blame you – there are only so many times you can watch celebrities jamming out in front of their unmade beds in mansions before you start missing the possibilities and crushing bodies of a live music gig. 

But we might have just the thing to shake you out of your streaming stupor. Remote Utopias is uniting over 50 new and established artists, filmmakers, producers and creatives for a 24-hour takeover of NTS Radio beginning on Saturday, May 2.

It'll feature artists like Skrillex, British soul songstress Jorja Smith, Irish rapper Rejjie Snow, singer-songwriter Kelsey Lu and American dub-soul trio Khruangbin. Rounding out the night is Australian psychedelic-rock legends, Tame Impala. Actor and comedian Jonah Hill is also slated for an appearance. 

Given that the music scene in the current moment isn't exactly conducive to discovering fresh blood, you can sample the offerings of rising stars like Bicep, Mica Levi, and Yves Tumor. Use the 24 hours of the takeover to weave in and out of the radio waves to see who you'll stumble upon next. Oh, but make sure you tune in for Erykah Badu's guided meditation session. 

NTS Radio and their partners, Jameson, are hosting the show over two virtual stages on Jameson's website. You can check out more details of the broadcast on the NTS website. The broadcast willl also be raising funds for The Global Foodbanking Network, and listeners will be encouraged listeners to donate when they tune in.
