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.
