A new phenomenon has hit the music world and that is; to stream music concerts and videos live, so that everyone can be a part of the live experience.
In the past week, two major bands have taken this idea on board, and has skyrocketed with popularity in both cases. Last weekend New York-based band, LCD Soundsystem streamed their final concert live, for all their fans across the globe to watch and listen. Earlier today, American indie-rock band, Death Cab For Cutie, followed in their footsteps, after a 3-week campaign, having set a date to air the filming of their video live for all their fans online.
Both bands have been around for 10+ years, and have thus scoped out the ins-and-outs of the music industry. The newest fad being, the streaming of live material.
LCD Soundsystem’s live stream attracted thousands of fans across the globe. Fans love to be a part of a virtual live experience, as it brings them closer to their favourite artists!
So if you’re an artist, and you want to make a mark in the music world – this is something to think about!
Get cracking, do it live! And online!
