No more parties during quarantine? Who said so? In case you missed the memo, parties are still happening. But long gone are the days when they happened in confined IRL spaces – the club is now poppin’on Instagram.
Last month, a party named Homeschoolin’ hosted by DJ D-Nice gathered more than 4,000 people including Drake, J-Lo and Mary J. Blige to name but a few. The best part? No bouncers at the door. Live from DJ D-Nice’s home in Los Angeles, the party was free and had no drink minimum or dress code.
With IG live parties now invading our Instagram feeds, everyone has the chance to attend a party with all their favourite celebrities – from the comfort of their bed.
These are the best parties on Instagram Live – follow the accounts and keep an eye out for announcements of their next parties. You’ll be sliding up in the comment section beside Drake before you know it.
Venus X is not your average DJ. Founder of GHE20G0TH1K, New York’s cult underground club night frequented by Frank Ocean, Shayne Olivier and countless other fashion kingpins. Venus X has always been committed to building a community. So it’s natural that she would be giving back to her followers now. Keep an eye open for the next one!
Ed Banger’s Myd gives daily DJ sets live from his home (which he aptly titled CoMyd-19), during which he gives shout outs to hospital staff and friends.
Zack Bia & Pedro Cavaliere

Virgil Abloh’s first set in 8 months happened on Instagram and it was exactly what we needed—a languid jazz ambience. The concept behind it? Cult artist George Condo sends an original painting to Abloh, who turns it into a DJ set. Sit down and relax.
