The livestream will raise funds for The Global Foodbanking Network, a charity providing food to those in need around the globe. The stream will concurrently broadcast two live “stages”, aiming to emulate the setup of a music festival.

In a statement, NTS described Remote Utopias as “a 24hr radio takeover across two live channels, bringing together musicians, DJs, artists and filmmakers from across the globe for a whirlwind of music of all genres, exclusive premieres, radio and live video streams”.

While some artists are expected to perform on the live-stream, others have more elaborate plans in store. According to NTS’s website, Badu will lead a guided meditation during her live-stream and JME will present a radio show about his favourite video game music.

Aside from the musicians featured, Remote Utopias will showcase the work of poets, photographers, visual artists and filmmakers from around the globe.
