Ōtautahi imprint Melted Ice Cream and local heartbreaker Ben Woods are the dream team behind two day online festival Better Living, Everyone: A Melted Ice Cream Streaming Thing. Getting the party started next weekend, the massive line-up of stay-at-home musicians exceeds anything Aotearoa has yet to see on the lockdown livestream front, setting the bar as high as a human pyramid made of all the artists on the bill. Marlon Williams, Lawrence Arabia, Francisca Griffin, Emily EdrosaMichael MorleySoaked Oats, Robert Scott, Womb and Pickle Darling are just a fraction of the eye-catching acts locked in to serenade the world through the power of the internet. The folks from Melted Ice Cream will be serving up the musical equivalent of a 32-scoop feast via their own site on the 17th and 18th, from mid-arvo 'til late. Head over to our livestream gig guide HERE and get up to date with what else is happening on the net, and check out the full Melted Ice Cream festival rundown below...

Press Release:

Better Living, Everyone: A Melted Ice Cream Streaming Thing

You get up and look around the house. A boot. Fly Spray. Two dressing gowns. Vitamins. Your own reflection on the stainless steel tap.

Due to a series of unfortunate events, not much gig-going is going on right now, but this doesn’t mean we can’t have live music.

You’ve spent so much time with these things. But now they are different. Their stillness, and in that stillness your own stillness, revealing something that was not there before.

Melted Ice Cream, Ōtautahi’s notorious cassette label, is turning its collective glad-hand to a streaming-only festival. And now that we’re not limited by physical venues, why not get nation-wide? Or even internation-wide?

A sound! A sonic vibration so wild all your other senses diminish and your body has gone. It has become the vibration.

This is the Melted Ice Cream’s fifth ‘Better Living’ festival, which, in its past lives has brought acts from all around into its Christchurch base.

The objects are gone too. You wouldn’t see them anymore anyway. You can’t without eyes to see.

This year’s festival is curated by poster boy Ben Woods, as he rides in on the back of the success of his debut LP ‘Put’. The set-up will be a ‘music-at-home’ scenario, with artists ‘going live’ on their own Instagram profiles. To save you the irritating task of jumping between instagram accounts, the tech mystics at Melted Ice Cream will capture the streams in real time, and roll the whole thing as one live stream over at meltedicecream.co.nz. And you’ll be able to stream it on your telly!

All that exists now is the shudder, the whistle of things. It reminds you of music.

See the lineup, timetable, and more information at meltedicecream.co.nz. It’s free to attend, tell your friends, share the link.
