Created by Night-Time Economy Adviser Sacha Lord, Greater Manchester Combined Authority’s (GMCA) Culture team, and local and national partners, United We Stream will be free, but with donations welcome, and with all proceeds going to the city-region’s night time economy, cultural organisations and charities.

From Monday 29 March United We Stream will broadcast a diverse blend of entertainment and creativity on one free online platform. Streaming live DJ-sets, live music and live performances, United We Stream will have something for everyone to enjoy while the country spends more time indoors.

United We Stream will be live every day from 7 p.m., with a donations page where viewers can watch for free but can buy a ‘virtual ticket’ for whatever price they choose to enjoy the channel. The channel will also be used for positive public service announcements and messaging regarding safety and social distancing.

All income from the stream will go directly to a relief fund, with 8% of funds raised donated to Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy Charity, 22% donated to the Mayor of Greater Manchester’s Charity, and 70% of all funding generated going specifically to support Greater Manchester's night time economy, including music venues, restaurants, bars, freelancers and cultural organisations who are unable to work or operate their businesses due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Performances will take place at artists' homes, gardens, or from selected host venues around the region, making sure all performances adhere to government advice around isolating, distancing and infection control.

Since United We Stream Berlin launched on 19 March, they raised £100k and saw 1 million hits in 24 hours, in total amassing more than £700,000 donations and millions of hits on their website.
