THE VALE LIVE presents a dynamic lineup of acts from across the globe, broadcasting from our virtual venue, live to your living room!
The Vale Live will bring you wonderful talent every Wednesday and Friday from our favourite artists in isolation. No need to move from the couch (unless you’re going to get your dancing shoes), you can catch each gig LIVE on our Facebook page and Global Grooves’ Youtube Channel. You can also catch all of the livestreams on our feed after the event if you miss it or want to watch it over again!
