All musicians must be livestream approved before they can create and perform online concerts on the Groupmuse platform. In order to be granted approval, musicians must submit a soundcheck that demonstrates proficiency using the broadcast program OBS to stream to YouTube Live.
Musicians must also meet the basic audio/video equipment requirements for streaming, which include an external microphone and webcam/video camera.
*More information about technical equipment requirements can be found here.

- Once you are set up to stream, you can then create and record a soundcheck test video (set to unlisted), demonstrating both your audio and video setup by performing for a brief 1-2 min duration, playing both softly and loudly, as well as speaking. You can then submit this sound check for approval as part of your application process to [email protected]
