Free streaming service Red Bull TV is promising coverage from some of the world’s best-known music festivals spanning rock, pop, hip-hop, country, jazz and other music genres.
Red Bull TV will provide live coverage from eight different festivals this summer (and in October), including “curated performances, exclusive interviews, [and] special segments with artists and the creative community.” The performance line-up for each event, all viewable at redbull.tv/festivals, will be announced a few days before each festival.
The festival schedule follows:
June 1-3, Primavera Sound (Barcelona, Spain)
Started in 2001, Primavera Sound “prides itself in booking some of the most interesting off-kilter acts while keeping safer, mainstream music at bay to create a unique genre-bending experience for the true music heads.” More information is available at primaverasound.com.
June 8-11, Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival (Manchester, Tennessee)
The Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, started in 2002, includes rock, hip-hop, electronic and jazz. It offers four days featuring “more than 125 live music acts, comedy, cinema, art, food, and even its own beer festival.” For more, visit bonnaroo.com.
