SPAIN: For the first time at a European festival, Primavera Sound and Red Bull TV will join forces to live stream the 16th edition of the Barcelona event from June 2 – 4. The three-day broadcast will cover four stages for eight hours per day, requiring a team of around a hundred professionals to operate.
This ambitious project goes beyond the high definition streaming of the main concerts, as the virtual experience will also include exclusive interviews on the Red Bull TV set located on the site itself in the Parc del Fòrum, plus intimate acoustic shows, 360º videos and other content that will provide an insider view of the event and will reveal what happens backstage. The famous British presenter Will Best will be responsible for the live stream, accompanied by Johann Wald as the onsite reporter.
In order to cover all time zones, the multi-channel stream will transmit until the start of the next day, and part of the material will also be available subsequently as free video content once the festival is over. The schedules of the live stream and other details will be available soon.
This live stream, that will inaugurate the festival season for Red Bull TV, can be followed through Primavera Sound’s web page and its official application, as well as on the different Red Bull TV platforms: web, app and its channels on Apple TV, Samsung TV, Amazon Fire TV, Kindle Fire, Nexus Player, Roku Players and Xbox 360.
